Several of my riding buddies have CB systems. Can I install the Harley bike to bike communicator without the tourpack? Inquiring minds want to know.

First, it would help to know what year Road Glide you are working with. The years 2009/earlier had the Handlebar controls and Speaker control switch installed from the factory to operate the radio, CB, Intercom, and Cruise Control. But Harley removed the complete controls and Speaker control switch starting 2010. The only control is included is the radio. To add any other accessories requires new Handlebar controls.

I first added the CB (76416-06C) to my '09 Road Glide before I added the Detachable Tour Pak. No matter how you go, it required the Non-Ultra Wiring Harness (70169-06). This will give plugs to add any Harley accessory used with the H/K radio.

Now that the CB radio can be installed, the CB needs to be heard and a microphone to talk on the CB. Even if you want to only hear the CB through the speakers, a rider plug is needed to use a microphone to talk on the CB.

First, the most complete way you can add headphone-access is using the Harley Boom!™ Audio Music and Intercom Kit (77108-09) MSRP $399.95 [Got a kit off eBay for $189]. This kit includes the handlebar controls and Speaker selector switch not included on 2010/later models. The stock radio can be programmed to enable the integrated intercom mode that works flawlessly as you ride down the road, and the wiring kit includes the addition of front and rear communications ports to bikes without rear speaker pods or Tour-Pak® luggage. Discrete tank and rear fender pods accept 7-pin plugs for rider and passenger headset that allow the rider and passenger to listen to infotainment programming without disturbing the neighbors. The rear port features a separate volume control, so rider and passenger can adjust the sound to comfortable levels.

Or If you do not have a passenger, you can just search around the Internet and purchase the Ultra Fuel Tank Pod with the headset connection (That is the way I first installed the CB on mine). This will give only the rider a headset plug to hear any music or the CB. But they can be heard from the speakers. You will also need the Speaker selector switch (77092-98) that control where the sound is routed, headset or speakers. It is to located on the left Speedometer/Tachometer Housing. Both are a Plug-N-Play. wires do not need to be cut to install. This way can cost less, but has less options for expansion.

The last thing needed is the CB antenna. Harley sells the parts required to add the CB antenna to the rear. But I am using the Hidden Antennas inside the Fairing. It keep the rear clean and makes removal and replacement of the detachable Tour Pak easier.

Now to install a Detachable Tour Pak with rear speakers is another thing that can be added later.

Good luck and Ride Safe.
