This may sound like a dumb question, and i'm for sure showing off my newbie status, but with my other outdoor hobby (http://moddedraptor.com/community/showthread.php?t=935) a standard (almost required) piece of equipment is a CB radio. they are vital for truck to truck communication on the trail. There will be many times that i will be riding with my buddies while they are wheelin, and it would be really nice to know whats going on. has any one installed a CB on their quad? i'm looking around and not seeing much (either here and on google) I'm not trying to spend alot of money and would like something quick and simple but clean install.. I've found these 2 radios that might work, i'm thinking as long as i use a set of headphones so i can hear i can put it in a backpack or find some way of attaching it to the quad with out it flying all over the place...... OR is it that tacky to have a CB on a quad?

The Midland one is nice because it comes with a battery (handheld walk around with it) as well as the car kit which add 12v power plug and a coax connector.

i run with the cobra you have and find that the C.B. works better than any radar detector you can buy :thumb:

I've never seen one installed on a quad; I think voltage is the issue.
You might try a handheld and report back to us regarding how well it worked.

that radio wont pick up the CB freq. so it wont do my any good because everyone else runs standard CBs. it looks to be a sweet radio otherwise.
