Honda Gold Wing motorcycles are an extremely successful brand and are often used for long distance and cross-country travel. Satellite radio opens up a new avenue of entertainment for motorcycle enthusiasts, providing hundreds of channels and the potential for thousands of hours of entertainment. There are several ways you can obtain XM Radio for your Gold Wing.
1. Call your local Gold Wing dealer and inquire about which models have XM. The majority of 2009 and 2010 Gold Wing Models come with XM Radio as a standard feature.
2. Purchase a custom motorcycle installation kit for a standard XM car system if your Gold Wing does not come with XM standard. These run between $250 and $350 and are designed to fit snugly and unobtrusively into your Gold Wing. They are available at motorcycle shops or online.
3. Try downloading XM onto your cell phone if you are looking for a more affordable way. The iPhone, Blackberry and other phone models support XM. One of the drawbacks of this method is that, if you’re on a long drive, the radio will drain your phone’s battery. It also requires extra loud headphones to overcome the noise of the road.
