    I ride with Southern Cruisers Riding Club. All of the hardcore riders use CB radios. With rides with 6 to 12 bikes and sometimes more, and a Ride Caption in lead and a Tail Gunner bringing up the rear, a cb radio is ideal for communication between bikes . We have Harley’s, Victories, Goldwings, BMWs, Triumphs and others all with CB radios . It may be old tech but it is still useful. I ride with SCRC at least 2 times a month.

    You can download an app from the App Store that will format NTFS on a Mac. I believe one of the apps has a free 30 day trial.

    The cb fix works. Got yo try it on a group ride today. Volume is adequate if you max cb volume and headset volume. Those of you that insist on wearing earplugs may have problems hearing cb.

    Now that just sounds like tit for tat I'm not going to try the 2nd update my as my CB had no issues after the 1st update. But oddly enough I was playing with the Sport Mode and burped the rear tire real good-scared the crap out me as the fromt end came up off the pavement so I check to see if I have losat Traction Control on mine. I've played with sport Mode b4 and never had it spin the rear because Traction Control was activated.

    I just installed the new update and had a problem. The first update and the new update have the same file name, SWDL. When I downloaded the files my computer added "(1) to the file name. When I tried to install the update the bike would not start the install. I had to delete the old version then change the new file to SWDL and copy to the flash drive. The install went fine except for the part where it is supposed to ask you to repeat the install and you say no. The install finished and the audio came back on. I will keep my fingers crossed that the install worked and the CB is working now. Will find out on group ride Sunday.

    This is a pleasant surprise! I have been putting in a lot of overtime working on problems caused by the current Southern California fires, Hill Fire and Woolesy Fire. I manage water and wastewater systems. I had to miss my group ride Sunday. I hope to get new update installed for this Sundays ride. Hopefully it fixes the problem.

    11/13/18 - Okay, I see Honda added the following line on the webpage.

    "Please note: This latest software update addresses the issues some owners experienced on Gold Wings equipped with CB radios."

    honda def has the ultimate responsibility. i agree.

    Geez, I added the sarcastic emoji to define not literally, what the heck.... guess I should have used the joke emoji.
