Hmmm for some reason the youtube tags aren't cooperating. Anywhoo link below to a short video I shot in the garage on my Motorcycle Mobile radio setup.

Fixed it for you.



That's a nice set up there. Looks like the actual Baofeng UV-5R might be one of the cheaper components on your mobile rig. That Sena wireless gear isn't cheap.

Nice paint job on your VStrom, btw.

Thanks :) 150 for the headset and I paid 90 for the SR-10 bluetooth hub used. They are about 170 new. So the bluetooth setup new is about 10 times the cost of the Baofeng haha. That gear is built for motorcycle use so is a bit more hardened against vibrations than the average HAM radio and I'm not willing to risk 150 dollar FT-60R when I can risk a 27 dollar UV-5R that out of our group here has worked just as good as the other guy's "name brand" gear.
