How do you talk???

Postby WVJefo » Sat Mar 23, 2013 9:42 am



My better half wants her own bike. She likes a Suzuki C50T. Just fine by me. But when she was on the back of the wing talking was not hard. She would just turn down the music. YES she was in charge of the tunes.

SO the question is best bike to bike comm systems? My Wing does not have CB. Money, ease, & reliablity are factors.

Thanks
Jeff

They ain't cheap, but they work...

These are slightly less dear, and they are supposed to work fine also.

Don't know firsthand, but I heard Chatterbox makes a good system.

I don't know,,,I wonder if you could use your cell phones and just buy the ear set with the mic...Would that work, just keep the phones plugged in to the power source..I don't know, you know me, always thinking...If your on the same plan it should be fine..Or No.. :shock:

I used the cb and the intercom system on the Goldwing for a long time. I just bought the sena bluetooth smh10 dual system. I sure do love it right now. Talk bike to bike, up to 4 sets, bluetooth to my phone, bluetooth music or mp3 player connects to the helmet also. I got them in Daytona bike week lat week, so I am still playing with them. Check them out.

Ditto on the Sena SMH 10 set. My wife and I had a set that worked very well. Sena also makes the SMH 5 - kind of a Chevrolet to the SMH 10 Caddilac.

You can check out all kinds of reviews for communication at WebBikeWorld on the link below. Lots of information about every system mentioned in the posts so far.

I have no experience with Cardo but I do with the sena and I love it. Have used it for a year now with no problems. I added a bluetooth transmitter
to my gl1800 audio systen and married it to the sena smh10. Now I hear all the wings audio outputs in the headset thru the bluetooth transmitter.

From my past experience with the Interphone systems I would recommend staying away from them. Although their noise cancellation system
make it easier to talk and hear at hiway speeds than the Sena they don't support their older products.

I have the basic Interphone set and if all you want to do is talk to each other they work good for 500 ft. They cost me about $150.00 three years ago.

jinx,
How did you add a bluetooth xmtr to your '06 audio system. I have an '04 and wondering if I could do the same. Where does the xmtr go and how is it connected? :?: :?: :?: :?

I made an adapter for the AUX cable that comes with the bike. I wired it into the drivers intercom connector under the top shell. That makes it
nice and clean. Then I bought a BTT005 bluetooth xmitter and a 3.5mm barrel connector. If you want both the rider and passenger to hear the
audio systen buy a BTSPlitter from wingstuff $42.00 plus shipping. This will stream to two bluetooth devices at the same time.

If you want you can buy the 5pin to 3.5mm adapter but them you will have to plug the xmitter outside the pocket.
The BTT005 will run for about 10hrs on a charge. If you want to hardwire it in get an isolated 5V power supply or you
will get niose over the system.

One slap on the helmet, means slow down.
Two slaps means stop at the next rest stop.
Three slaps means stop NOW.

This system seems to work, as she has me under control, most of the time. She has her own music system, so she doesnt have to listen to C&W, and I dont have to listen to 'girlie' music from Julio Inglesias and similar.

Beave, I assume that is a joke right?? Not a serious question....and I go along with the helmet slaps..mentioned in another post....One of the great things about riding without communication equipment.....I get silence for hundreds of miles....and what a wonderful sound that is....
