Thanks, I love hearing that what I've put together is of some use to people. Great to hear about your bike! Let us know what you find with a Bluetooth stereo.

I have an 86 Asp. also but I was thinking it might be easier to get a mp3 hook-up but have not tried. So I guess
i'm asking right now if anyone has been able to do this and make it compatable with the other audio systems on GW?

I wired my satellite radio into my bike's audio system, but I dismantled the radio in order to do it.

I was using one of the plug in to lighter socket FM modulators, it worked for a while but I wasnt happy with it. I changed to an Audiovox FM modulator, a type that plugs in between the antenna cable. A much better system.

I store my cell in the trunk that honda made fore those things.

I tried one of those but maybe my tape isnt working very well, it would quite after about two minutes.
I now use my audiovox with the gps

I have an 85 Aspencade and had the cassette on my radio repaired just so I could keep the bike original.

I bought a Cardo Q2 Bluetooth comm system a while back and love it. Allows my wife and I to communicate on the bike. I can use my cell phone. It has an MP3 input. I clip my Ipod on my belt and have tunes right in my headset. I just got back from a 1400 mile trip to Indiana. Ran the audio from my Garmin Nuvi to my helmet. Was able to listen to directions without a problem. I also copied 8GB of my favorite tunes to an SD card and put it in the Nuvi. Was able to listen to tunes and GPS. Yeah, I had a cord running from the GPS to my helmet, but it was never a problem.

Cli-MAX Riding Gear had the best price on the comm system.
