Here's the stable,,,,,, maybe went a little overboard. Haha.
I have a 2 meter now and soon a HF radio later this summer. I ride a 2003 Road King Harley. I enjoy low power operation when possible.
I'm riding my 2007 Yamaha FJ1300 to Dayton. I'll be on 146.52 simplex, talking on my Yaesu FTM-10R 2m/440 dual band radio. I have PTT remoted to the left hand grip and the mic and speakers in the helmet. After years of practicing walking and chewing gum I can now ride and talk at the same time. See you at Dayton.
After hanging up the leather's and selling the 2003 Tour Glide Classic, I concentrated on work and other activities until I fell into a deal for a 1988 Yamaha Venture Royale which had been converted into a trike. I am in the process of rebuilding the frame and rear end as well as possible modifications to the fairing which is getting brittle due to age. I am planning on installing an icom 706 MK II - G and an extra battery to the trike. I am not sure if I will do radio while riding but I have joined a trike club here in the area which has at least 2 other operators in it.
2005 vstar, listen in on the 2m through my speaker system or run aprs as i drive
