Default Ham radio on a motorcycle

Some of the elements have been mentioned in other threads, but I wanted to get this stuff all in one place. So let this be the official definitive ham radio on a motorcycle thread. As I see it there are four main areas of concern:

1. power
2. the radio
3. remote microphone, remote speaker connectivity
4. antenna

So with that, I will ask that anyone with knowledge or a somewhat knowledge-based opinion please post up your recommendations to any or all of the 4. Is there a 5?

And why would you even want to have a ham radio on a motorcycle? Well for starters all the same reasons you'd want one in a truck- main ones being communicate with others on the run, and reach out for help if there's an emergency and no cell coverage. Are there others?
