I don't see any issues with hooking it up to the bikes battery, but there are safety issues with listening to anything like that while riding. I have never listened to music while riding, the ride is enjoyment enough, moreso without music. But that aside, I seriously doubt you would be able to hear such a small speaker at speed, wearing a full face helmet. Actually it would probably be even worse without the full face helmet, due to wind noise.
I rode a Goldwing once (a '93 1500) with a built in factory stereo and speakers, and all you could hear above 35 mph or so was just noise. And the Goldwing has a very effective fairing/windshield, and the speakers were mounted in the fairing facing the rider.
Kinda makes me wonder about all those guys riding Harley dressers with factory stereo systems, and open pipes. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
