Less mess, less stress. The FreeWire is a Bluetooth adapter designed for both Harley-Davidsons and Honda Gold Wings that allows riders to wirelessly connect to their bike’s infotainment system. Once connected to your Bluetooth headset, you can use it to communicate via CB radio, hear turn-by-turn directions from the GPS system, listen to your favorite radio stations, and more. If you often ride two up, purchasing an additional FreeWire for your passenger lets you talk over the motorcycle’s intercom system.

Talk time is seven hours. The FreeWire can be paired with either the Sena 20S, 10U, 10C, 10R, or 10S Bluetooth headset. Headsets must be purchased separately. For those more interested in tunes, a 3.5mm AUX port makes it easy to plug in additional accessories, such as an MP3 player, GPS device, and more, all of which can be heard alongside your bike’s infotainment system.

We found the FreeWire easy to mount. It comes with two different mounting options: a handlebar mounting kit and a mounting cradle for the bike itself. It powers on when you turn your bike on, and off when you cut the engine for maximum convenience. On multi-day trips, it was easy to keep the FreeWire charged with the 12V charger that comes in the box. Its lithium polymer battery takes 2.5 hours to recharge. And because it operates well in just about every temperature a motorcyclist might encounter, we felt confident using it on winter and early spring rides in the Southeast. Weighing less than two ounces, it is an inconspicuous device that does the hefty work of cutting the cord.
