I attended the International Motorcycle Show in Novi, MI this weekend a saw a clever audio player in the Honda booth. It was a handlebar mounted amplifer that attached to your XM/Mp3/Serius/Ipod radio, the speaker was a tube like affair about 12" long and looked like the head of a remmington electric razor, Mounting hardware for the VTX mounted the speaker unit on the bars where spedo/tach is mounted on the R3. but it lends itself to mounting elsewhere with a little imagination. Very clean look and relativly small compared to most speakers. the control unit mounted off the mirror post, it has large buttons for vol-up, vol-down, mute and on off. Retail price was $400.00 for the unit and another $100.00 for mounting brackets. Not cheap, but there are speakers alone out there running $500.00 plus. I looked on there website for a link but it doesen't appear that they keep it to up to date. However the dealer there from Canton,OH said they had them in stock!
