where bikers connect + share
I'm considering buying speakers for my new Heritage Softail classic. Does anybody here with a similar bike recommend speakers? I have a windshield but am still wondering how much I'd be able to hear the speakers while riding (with wind noise, road noise, helmet on, etc).
The speaker set at the Harley Davidson dealer is pretty pricey ($400), so if anybody can recommend a different option please let me know.
My second alternative is to buy a Bluetooth headset that would fit in my helmet that I could connect my iPod with wirelessly.
Or if neither of those options pan out then I may just use earbuds with my iPod whenever I want to listen to music.
Thanks for any advice/thoughts.
Ray, I ride a softail and have been riding with speakers hooked up to an ipod for almost three years.
The best speakers out there and I've listened to them all...for the money are J&M 4" speakers (with built in amps)

There the bomb... forget earbuds, forget blue tooth.... J&M ROCK around town or even on the interstate doing 80mph!
