Not a whole lot of room to do that on a KLR. That's one reason I have a Goldwing too. On the KLR I use headphones and an mp3 player in the pocket.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

This is my idea of a great sound system, although it's mono.

Check it out here.

Count me in as another "vote" for the MP3 / iPod / iPhone and earbuds combination...

I can't really believe you'd get to hear much with an external sound system, especially with the sound of the motor, through a helmet, and any wind noise (depending on the noise level of your specific helmet).
