    Get a Cardo or Sena. I have my own private jam sessions all the time with mine.

    Yeah, it’s super easy. Just Bluetooth link it to your phone and listen to whatever you want. But, I do like the convenience of my Chieftain’s sound system though. The speakers are really loud, and I wear earplugs when I ride.

    I said the same thing about never owning a bike that wasn't water-cooled and shaft-driven, but here we are. We all make some adjustments as time goes on...

    and yes, I know I could've had those two things with a Challenger, but, at double the cost, where my cost was already stretched well over my initial budget.

    Have you looked into a simple bluetooth set in your helmet? Wife and I both swear by our Sena units, great passive music so I can still hear everything but electric cars coming, plus we can talk to each other - "Hey, did we miss our turn?" "Nah, next light" without needing to take our eyes off the traffic. I think the only thing that annoys her is when I get to cussing up a storm at some cager sitting still at a green light or straddling lanes when I'm trying to get around them.

    Best,
    -Odin

    I don't EVER want my wife in my helmet. On it, but never in it. Hand signals and paying attention keeps my ride enjoyable.

    You could always "Oops, I hit the intercom button when I was adjusting volume" - I hear what you're saying, but when the immediate "Hey, look out for that car coming in from your blind spot" needs to get through, it gets through...

    Those aren't the last words I want to hear, though.
