On my rg (non-Rushmore) I used both the HD shorty antenna and a $5 auto parts store flexible rubber antenna. Both with good success. I don't know how they'd be on the Rushmore bikes though

This antenna from Walmart works without changing a thing on the bike.....just screw the antenna on.

Is the reception as good with the Walmart antenna? I might pick one of those up. Thanks!

This antenna works well in my area....strong signal area in the "city".....Washington D.C. area.
Give the antenna a try if it doesn't well for you, you can return it and get your money back....Walmarts geat!

OOPs, sorry! I saw the title of this thread and thought it was probably about a new penis enhancement pill.

Go with the inner fairing complete eliminator. Great reception, retains weather bands and not too pricy.

I am glad you are experiencing great reception with an inner fairing antennae. Too bad that is not the norm. I'm pretty sure it would be cheaper to come like that from HD but too many would complain about the poor reception. I have tried the inner fairing, the hidden under the seat mod, and the only way to get reception of my favorite stations is the stock antennae and location?

Yeah I agree with this. I put the inner fairing one in my 09 and reception was absolutely horrible no matter where I went. For the cost it was really a bad decision IMO. I may try the walmart shorty on my 16 but if that's bad I will just learn to live with the long stock antenna.
