All weather satelite radio receivers?

Anyone know of any all weather type XM or Serius satelite receivers? They need to portable to mount to a bike.

Thanks!

Garmin Zumo 550 with XM receiver . Also doubles as GPS, MP3 player and Bluetooth phone hub. You'll get weather & traffic with that as well.

Oh, great to hear. I just got the Zumo and didn't even know that! (still in a box). Sweet, thanks.

You probably don't have XM receiver - it is not included with the Zumo by default. You have to buy it separately. I still don't have one.

Ahh ok. Well, it's going on the goldwing so I should have some room somewhere for the receiver and antenna.

The receiver is integrated into the antenna or the zumo itself, it is a very small round box that'll fit on practically any bike. Doesn't Goldwing have GPS / XM built in?

XM sucks get Sirius. Way better. Stern alone is worth subscription. They will probably merge soon anyway.

It has GPS, but not XM. Just standard radio, CD Changer, and "Aux" which will be satellite I hope.

WAT!?!?!?!?! I thought it came with it. You mean I've been saving up for a 700 dollar GPS and I need more shit for it to do the one thing I'm buying it for??? Damnit to hell!

i have both, one portable XM unit and sirius in my car, and I prefer the programming on XM. but that might be my music tastes because most people tell me that they prefer Sirius

That was my reaction as well... But I found it relatively cheap on buydig, I think it was on same for six hundreds something. But - yeah, for all the satellite-related features you need an XM antenna/receiver, which is around 200, I think. Plus the Roamer's mount is a must for the Multi .

I love the zumo, though. Great GPS and with the addition of 4Gb SD card it's OK for MP3s, too.
