Default Missing antenna

I installed bag fillers On my cross country which look great.
But I lost my antenna!,
Does any one have a GOOD fix ??
I am not aware of any hidden antennas that work well and have not found a good spot to relocate a standard antenna.

I put the bag fillers on mine too. I got a cheap universal antenna from Walmart and it works just as well as the stock IMHO.

I put the adpater on it that fits the stock base. I turned the mount down and mounted the antenna facing the ground, so it isn't very noticeable

I also replaced my stock antenna with the 10 dollar Walmart one works just as good as stock. In fact just having the antenna cable with no antenna works just as well. So much for antenna science.

I just experimented with antenna since I'm putting bag fillers on soon too. I've had a short antenna for a few years now. What I did was zip tie mine down to the bag rail and I haven't had any issues so far. Taken it out on a couple rides and no difference between it being up and tied down in sound quality. I hope it works out!

Where did you guys get you bag fillers @? And were they color matched or do they need to be painted?

The bag fillers are from vicbaggers.com but you can also get them from buywitchdoctors.com
The came powder coated gloss black, but they can be ordered pre-painted in any color. Primed is also available, if you want to DIY
