I went with a pair of Sena SMH10 for mine and my wife's helmets. That still leaves the CB out though. I can listen to it but not talk. Eventually, I'll grab one of these http://www.spoiledbiker.com/product3898.html, but for $249 it'll wait for a while.

I also have the SMH 10, and have been very happy with it, but use it as a headset only. I don't have it connected to anything else - actually don't have anything else that uses bluetooth on my bike.

For greater connectivity, Sena is now making the SR 10. Not a headset (that is the SMH 10), but a connection device. Compatabile with lots of bluetooth stuff, and two hard wired devices. According to the Sena website, has connectivity from the devices to (maybe) any bluetooth headset, not just theirs. Not sure about that, but it sure looks interesting.

Thanks for the responses. Guess I should rephrase my question. I have a 1986 GL1200SEI with radio A/M-F/M cassette and no CB. I have been told it has driver to passenger intercom but I don't know this. I would like the ability to take advantage of the bikes audio system and add CB and bluetooth phone. I do not have the headsets in my helmets so everything will need to be purchased.

how long have you had tour bike topdogtom,it could be that po tucked it in a pouch or somewhere because he didn't use it. if you do have intercom,their should be a plugin for a cord for helmet use. i have a J&M set up on mine i got from cyclemax,much less expensive than from J&M.
the cb would have to be an add on i would think. this place,https://www.directlineparts.com/store.asp?str=0, has been very helpfull to me recentlly and respond back quickly.as for blutooth, if you can find your interface for comm,then you would have a starting point to get what you want to do.if have to add everything the choices are many. sierra electronics mite be able to help also. good luck and happy riding.
forgot to mention that i have a 1500 se but things shouldn't be that different
