I am going to start looking for a radio aerial for my bike stereo, this should help get a better reception in weaker areas for when I am not playing mpegs.
I may even fit two aerials to the rear if it looks good.
If anyone spots one that would look nice on the bike, could they please post a link in here please. A small one would be nice but a larger one could also double as a bendy flag pole possibly?
Just spotted this one on Ebay but I would need an adjustable angle mount with it as well. LINK

I live in a crappy signal area for radio, so when I am at or near my house my stereo radio signal is limited to only a few stations. However as soon as I am about a mile or two away I get more stations, so I would like to add the aerial just to assist in the shittier areas a bit when out on my bike. At the moment the aerial wire is still wound up in the tool roll so maybe if I just unwrapped it and ran it down my forks that might actually work just as well?
I just liked the idea of having a proper radio aerial on the bike, its the poser in me I'm afraid. Motorcycle Radio Aerial? 852880
