Bike to Bike Communications

I am sick and tired of my chatterbox radios. There has to be something better out there for Bike to Bike comms! What do you guys use that you like? I am looking mainly for talking to my wife on her bike and listning to music, no phones!!

What is good?

Scott

haven't cracked the code on this one yet - still "low tech" myself... but interested - hence the bump.

I pissed a lot of money away over the years on communication junk, nothing has worked for me exept for a factory installed C.B. Thats why I ride an HD Ultra Classic when traveling.

J M CB Radios

I have looked at almost all of the options out there and I keep coming back to the bike mounted CB radio by J M .
I haven't made the purchase yet but I will soon as we are planning a trip across Canada next year. Not only will we be able to talk to each other and listen to music but there is the added funtion of an emergency radio in case something happens. Channel 19 is used by all the Truckers so one should be able to call for help if needed. The other thing I had to do was buy full face helmets and I think windshields to keep the wind noise down and improve the sound.
Good luck with whatever system you choose but do check this one out.....

Contact fellow inmate Kieth on here. He has a fat setup on his and his buddies bikes. I think they get about a 7mile range. Of course they are in OK though.

I've used a BlueAnt InterPhone for the last 5000 miles of touring, and it works great. It simultaneously pairs with a second headset as well as your GPS or Bluetooth-enabled phone, has excellent range, is easy to use, and will last all day on the road.

Biggest caveat is it only pairs with one other InterPhone at a time. For group rides, get an Autocom.
