Starmate Replay (silver) & Streamer GTR (black)...they are both the same radio. It looks like this: http://picasaweb.google.com/bobosmite/MotorcyclePics/photo#5000610795458723858. I have it mounted on a RAM camera mount and it's the only radio at the time that clipped into the mount...in other words, there's no bulky cradle for it to vibrate loose. The antenna and volume control (ampli-rider) is mounted on the left. Power connections and ampli-rider are mounted under the seat.

What I would do differently? Maybe find a way to mount the ampli-rider inside the front cowling. I had to add an inline noise filter to clean up interferrence from the spark plugs.

As for the ampli-rider; it's a great product, but mine needed some modification. The input/output jacks and their capacitors will vibrate loose. I need to find the time to re-solder the connectors or just solder the audio wires directly to the board.

XM

I'm currently using my Garmin 2730 on the bike....combination GPS and XM radio/MP3, with my Etymotics ER6i earbuds. This Garmin has really good volume output. Lovin' it!

I WAS using my Pioneer INNO portable, same earbuds....INNO sitting in the top pocket of my tankbag or on a mount worked fine as well. Battery life is kinda short with the portable units though. Volume output was pretty darn good.

Before that I had the Delphi Roady XM on a previous bike, also fine!

All used with handlebar mounts made by RAM. The combination XM/GPS just seemed like my best option, as I like having both, and I picked it up for a very good price on Fleabay.

XM via a Garmin 2730. Get it from Costco.com for $499 and get a GPS/XM/MP3 all in one.

i have an Xact XTR2 streamjockey on a RAMmount on the right side on the strom handlebar, with my garmin on the left side. i use a rio forge as my fm modulator and some ER6s as earplugs. this way i am not 'connected' to the bike and can walk around while getting gas and still listen to music. its essentially a 'set it and forget it' rig.....never need to adjusted volume/station/etc. makes those 800 mi days on the slab reasonably bearable. however, as always, YMMV...

I was just reviewing my XM renewal compairing it to Sirius, one important differance is major city road reports, it comes standard on XM, $4 per month extra on Sirius. Those reports were very handy on my cross country last summer. This service made me stick with XM.

I will be selling an autocom easi7 with 12 adaptor and power plug for $85 shipped, it has been used about 10 hrs, I don't like all the wires coming out of my helmet, it just bothers me. I'm going with a set of small speaker and amp. The only thing with my easi7 is the passenger plug was clipped off to lessen the bulky extra wire.

sorry if this appears to be a hijacking, I just thought it would be a good place to make this reasonable offer.
