    Want some sound on my GL500

    I've got a 82 GL500 and want to add some sound. Any thoughts on the best way to get some tunes while cruising?

    Doesn't even require a mod to the bike.

    I have the Hondaline (Clarion) speaker system on mine with a Pioneer am/fm/cd player in the left fairing pocket. The system is worthless at highway speeds. Not so good at low speeds either. Good thing there is a phone jack on the units to plug in ear buds. Under a full face helmet it works ok.

    I'm adding a radio and speakers to the fairing of my GL this winter. Figure if I can get it loud enough I'll be safer because the cagers will hear me coming.
