I understand that you want a Bluetooth device that can be connected to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously. So, you will need a multipoint Bluetooth helmet set. Otherwise you will need to switch between the devices.

I personally, prefer the OEM set up with a Garmin GPS connected to my cellphone via Bluetooth. I can listen to the music and if I receive a phone call it automatically stops the music and makes the phone connection.

You should probably go with the Sena comm system as it can communicate helmet to helmet, connect with your radio and as an option you can buy an interface to connect to your onboard CB radio. Or you can check the Cardo Scala Rider which is voice command and has six programmable radio stations as well. I found my double Scala Rider system that sells at Honda for $500.00 on ebay for $300.00. And it can be brought over to the new bike when you upgrade to the 2014. It works very well but the guys I ride with prefer the CB so, I have one helmet with a headset to plug in to the 5-pin connector on the bike when I ride with them.

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.
