Mystery button

I have this button on my bike and I can't figure out what it's for. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Thanks in advance
Barbara

Re: Mystery button

Looks like a push to Talk button to use with a FRS/GMRS Radio.

And the volume and squelch dials for the CB are at the right side of the photo - grayish in color.

The PTT button can be installed wherever you want it. I prefer to have it within easy reach of my left thumb, below the grip. From the photo, it looks like you'd have to roll your thumb over the left grip to push the button.

Re: Mystery button

Thank you all!

It's on my 2009 k1200Lt Trike. Turbo boost! LOL. I have never used the CB that must be what it's for. I was so hopeing it was for a throttle up garage door opener.

Thanks again,

Barbara
