I have a CB on my Gold Wing trike and found very little use for on on several coast to coast and up to Alaska and back trips. Only times it came in handy was finding out what was causing long traffic backups and getting myself re-routed.
Now it is used mostly for group riding with a Gold Wing Chapter or the Patriot Guard. Hardly ever hear any traffic in the Lower 48.
