Default STOP THE PRESSES!!! New speakers for your bike...

As found on eBay...

That's right folks, the system you've all been waiting for!! Speakers in your mirrors. Don't believe me? Read what they're saying:

"Whenever you are on the way to work, waiting somebody, playing at home, outings, etc., the rear-view mirror loudspeaker can always give you great fun."

and...

"Nobody will know where the music is coming from as the speakers are built into the rear view mirrors."

Still don't believe me? See for yourself!

I have a friend (XLF member) who traded in his Sporty for a BMW (ST I think) and when ever he's at a stop light and there are some HD riders next to him, he throws in a CD full of Harley's revving into his CD player and cranks the volume.

I don't like how "thick" they are but that's probably for the MP3 player, memory card reader, amp, and all that stuff. If they could move all that stuff to a seperate unit that could be placed somewhere else on the bike I bet they would slim down a lot and I'd love something like that.

unless those speakers are 16ohm/500watt they would never be heard because of my pipes...
