Where ever you buy, there should be 3 filters w/the radio. Make sure you get those.
Make sure you or someone knowledgible sets/tunes the SWR(standing wave ratio) correctly.
Sierra Electronics makes their own single antenna if you perfer not to add a second one to you bike. It is advertised to be pretuned!

If you choose the Sierra antenna then here's the radio link wo/the antenna:

With everything set up properly, expect to be able to transmit up to 5 or 6 miles when conditions are almost perfect.
2 to 4 miles is about the norm.
Good luck,

If you ever think you might want to add other radios like frs or want to patch in gps audio, this is a new product that has some promise:


Comparable in price to the links you found, but with more features.

New GL2WAY feature

Post by salyzyn » Thu Nov 25, 2010 1:43 pm

Been using the GL2way unit since June. Because of my proximity, I have had a chance to test out advanced features and fixes. I have been sold on the GL2way for some time :shock:

The latest new feature has me excited, it is the scanning feature designed just for the way Motorcyclists operate. Only Pete really knows when it will become generally available.

I use it to scan all the channels while on my ride to work every day, largely because I am bored, but it has helped me get information about accidents along the I-4 corridor as a perk. There are several options to reduce the number of scanned channels as it offers three scanning options programmable from the CB hand controls using some easy-to-master gestures:

General scan - all channels. Takes roughly 10 seconds for it to scan all the channels, hangs around for 10 seconds before it starts scanning again. Turn it off by hitting the PTT or channel switch.

Boundary scan - As above, but between two channels. I used it to scan between 20 and the way around to 18, skipping the truckers on 19 :twisted:

Priority scan - priority channel, plus a background channel. Priority is your riding group channel, channel 1 for example, background is 9 and 19 or any other channel you choose. Wish I had this when we had a few riding groups, each on their own channels, apparently I missed a joke about the Holy Chalice being discovered in the mountains of Georgia ;)

Edit: Oh, and the unit is on sale too for Black Friday, discussed at http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=266347

You may want to take a look at this link. I find the site pretty good and have had no problems with the over 20 orders I've made thru them.

As for how long it takes to install I don't however I hope I get one for Xmas so I have it for next year.
