Thinking of adding an audio system to my bike. Any suggestions? I have an iPhone and will use it for the music source.

Before adding my faring I had a Shark stereo system I purchased off ebay. It worked great and it has an Ipod jack. My wife still has one on her 650 and it works great.

Thanks HD I've looked at the Shark stuff online. Wondered if it was good. Hate to buy stuff without really hearing it.

It seems to be holding up good and sounds good. I sold my kit to a guy at work and he put it on his vic and loves it.He uses an I-phone for his tunes.

I bought The Shark Sturgis system.......TOTAL JUNK! Didn't work right out of the box and was all beat up from loose bolts tumbling around the box during shipment. Sounded terrible and the jack to plug in my phone/mp3 player was messed up. Had to wiggle the jack all the time to get both speakers to work. It was the digital version with the push button controls on the speaker itself. I have read many good stories about them, but mine was crap. They refunded with no issues, but I gave up on the idea. Just the wind in my ears.

I've been thinking about this very addition & have done a little bit of research. This thread from the VTX forum caught my eye:

I think I may use something similiar as I've been looking into many options and this may be the best value. I'll probably wind up with custom made mounts for the speakers themselves & I have a Sony Mp3 player with a radio in case I get caught somewhere in an emergency & need to hear the local stations. Still looking though, as I suffer from Analysis Paralysis & won't make up my mind until the entire planet is scrubbed for options!!!!:mad:
