CB antenna for touring

Since I added the CVO rear fascia to my bike I had to figure out a quick easy way to mount my CB antenna for touring. I also wanted it to be easy to remove.

I decided to fabricate a mount. That would attach using the rear bolt stud on the saddle bag support. I went to Lowes and I purchased a piece of aluminum stock. it is about 1 inch wide and an eighth of an inch thick. I did not unbolt the saddle bag bolt... I just slipped the bracket on the stud and added an additional bolt. The top of the bracket (above the bolt) was bent in a 90 degree to keep the bracket from rotating on the single bolt.

I measured, drilled, bent and painted until I like the finished product. I then ran the wire which was tied up behind the saddle bag.

Simple, clean and easy. Great touring solution. Easy to remove

So I took the bike out with my headset on and went cruising on the local interstate.

I started talking with a few of the truckers and they were amazed at how powerful and clear the cb was transmitting. Another item ready for the Gypsy Tour!!!

I did the exact same thing however I directed my brace forward towards the front of the bike and ran the antenna out the right side hole.
