2.Scosche hd7000b
3. V Twin Audio or the

For the guys that are running aftermarket radios, which do you prefer or dislike.

Hawg wired or sidecar cycles. The biketronics kit sucks and looks like ass IMO. I have had all listed above. The hawg wired/sidecar cycles looks the best and fits the best.

V-twin (aka sidecar cycle) is my choice. I replaced the schosch one with it and couldn't be happier.

I used the HW kit and the quality is excellent. I would also recommend the Sidecar Cycle splash cover. It is a little pricey but works extremely well at sealing out rain, plus it looks good.

I went with the Sidercar cycles's kit since they also developed the waterproof cover ... they matched perfectly.

About 350.00 plus shipping. I got mine off eBay direct from vtwin. I replaced it with MEDALLION BAGGER STEREO SYSTEM. I got tired of pulling off the faceplate to play with the radio. This medallion bagger radio has everything and it's really waterproof.

Check it out, here's a link. I got it from EP for $650.00

Lots of members on here use the kit from biketronics and have had nothing but positive comments on it. I ordered their kit and it will be here in a few days. When I get it next weekend I'll give a review of it.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.
