Car Stereo on Motorcycle

Yes this is nothing new on a Goldwing, I have a 1984 GL1200 with Pioneer car stereo with 4 speakers, 2 up front 5 inch and two 6 inch at rear

But I just got a new 2nd bike, a 2015 Honda 750 Shadow Aero (brand new) and I want to put a stereo on it, I dont like ear buds, I want something like what I have on my goldwing with a Pioneer car stereo, but no room for it

So what I want to know is this.. All I ever listen to is my Ipod Shuffle 2x2 inch that I just have plugged into aux input

I dont want some cheap shark item at least I dont believe so, I want some small head that I can just somehow fasten to handlebars, or make fit somewhere, but I want it to be able to power the speakers the same way my full size Pioneer car stereo does on my Goldwing

I dont need a radio or a cd, just to plug in my little mini Ipod shuffle win 3.5 aux input, but with the same power as the full size car stereo, and I want it to power two 6x9 speakers

Am I dreaming is there such a thing

I have looked at a lot of shark stuff and related, they all sound pretty tinny to me on the videos, can anybody help me out

just want a small head unit with aux input 3.5 or usb input, no radio or cd needed , but want to be able to power same speakers as a full size standard car stereo, and get same sound

I can figure away to install speakers. just need a small powerful head unit that could maybe clamp on handlebars

You can buy a 'Batwing' fairing that you can install a stereo in, I think they were called 'radio caddy fairings'.

What I see the most at bike shows for installs is a pair of speakers mounted to handle bars in a neat package about the size of a fist it is tied to an amp under the seat. and connected to your phone . The sound is incredible install time is minutes and can be transferred to next bike. If I had a naked bike this system would force me to buy a smart phone.

That is probably what I am looking for, though I just have a flip phone, I have my Mini Ipod Shuffle that I suspect that could be plugged in in stead of phone, or probably

thanks for input

I once bought one of those Shark stereo kits for my ST1100.
What a joke.
Threw it in the trash.

Thanks, that is big because I just completely ruled that out based on your experience

This looks like it would be a good start. You'll probably need to wire in an amp. It's a pretty clean looking install though and waterproof.
And...
...if it turns out to be not so good, you're only out 17 bucks.

There was a vendor at Americade, He was actually staying at the same campground, that was selling this setup. The sound was remarkable.
