Hey gang,

Is anyone aware of an alternative CB radio to the honda unit? One that fits in the same space?

Bike MP3 used to have a GL2Way model of CB, but they are presently in the process of upgrading theirs. You can get on a mailing list for information here:

I have the BIKEMP3 unit, but I purchased mine without the CB, and later added one on. I was able to purchase one of the Harley CB's that pop up on EBAY from time to time, and got it really cheap. Pete at BIKEMP3 married the two parts and I had to purchase the interface cable and an antenna adapter.
If you don't want to wait for Pete to get his new version CB's, maybe this would work for you too?
