Antenna

Does the Goldwing require a specific antenna-for the model, year, etc. or can I just put one that I pick up at Autozone-i.e. standard general use antenna?

Standard car antennas may or may not have the correct plug on the end.

If you have a CB (and antenna splitter) that shares duty with your radio, then you need a CB antenna with a load coil.

This is the antenna I put on my bike when I broke my original one, and it works amazingly well.

My bike has two-one for the CB and one for the radio-the radio is the one that is broken.

If that's the case, then any FM radio car antenna that has the correct connector will work.
