Winter Riding, helmet speakers

I have the DL handguards on my 00 naked with Bikemaster Superbike bars, and
I love them.  They do a good job of blocking wind and rain, as has been well
documented on the webernets.  I actually take them off in the summer because
it gets too warm (when you leave the Seattle area, haha).

Re: Sounds, I have an Autocomm setup and I absolutely love it.  The intercom
aspects are as incredible as portrayed in advertising, but more relevantly
the system's pure audio aspects are equally superb.  With the speakers
inside my helmet liner I never have to take my helmet on-and-off fiddling
with getting earbuds just right, and I can wear earplugs.  The sound quality
is really, really good.
