You want one with a volume control, squelch, and a channel knob. Not much else. That'll keep it simple for trail rides and road trips. Uniden, Cobra and Radioshack all make fine examples of these.
That's my 2 cents. If you want something more capable than that, you're spinning your wheels with the CB. Start studying for your HAM....
I have the Cobra, yep it is ok at best but really for the limited time I use it, once a year, it does the trick. One less console to mount. HAM is the way to go.
