    I recently purchased the bike of my dreams, a 2011 Road Glide Ultra CVO. I have had it about 5 months now and will be leaving next week for a 48 state ride. I decided that I would like to have contact with my cell phone should someone need me in an emergency. My cell phone connects great to the GPS that came on the bike and who ever I am talking to can here me fine when I speak in the mic on my helmet. The problem is I can't hear them. Is there a volume just for the riders headset?

    Ride Safe,
    Pat

    In your owners manual there is a complete section on how your radio operates - it took me many attempts to get the radio controls set to were I didn`t need to look to set . that means read & re- read until you under stand control functions . get familure with the cb option if you have it. they do come in handy at times .
    also retest head set by plugging into rear socket .
    from there Welcome to the Forum & have a safe trip

    Welcome to THE forum. Get rid of the phone hook up and check it when stopped for a break, gas etc. The beauty of a great ride doesnt include phones, computers, or gadgets IMO.

    Do you hear everything else OK (music, intercom) if not, you may need to move the speakers around a little in the helmet.
    There As SMitty said there is a volume control for the front but sometimes you need to be in the approproite mode to change the volumen (i.e. intercom you have to be in comm mode to set the intercom volume)
