Bike to bike

Postby 08gl1800 » Thu Mar 22, 2012 10:40 am



I will be going on a Rt 66 ride with my dad and uncle soon. My dad and I do not have CBs, is there a bike to bike system out there (other than bluetooth having to charge headsets and all that kind of stuff ) that the 3 of us could use with our existing Goldwing intercom systems. A CB and antenna cost over 600 bucks, neither 1 of us want to spend that kind of money for 1 trip.

Kennedy, when they were still in business, made a CellSet that could be used to integrate FRS radios.

I don't think you're going to find what you're looking for - the bluetooth headsets that require recharging will be the cheapest route, the CB and antenna will be the easiest hassle-free route.

Got just the thing for you. I have two ATV's and ride in the mountains here with a large group. I have found that using an FRS radio (at COSTCO) for around fifty bucks works great for us. Then go to one of your local ATV dealers and ask them if they carry head sets for your helmet made by MOTOCOMM. We have speakers in our helmets and a button to energize the radio on the handle bar next to the grip. You don't have to take your hands off the handle bars that way. Suggeston, get the radios first, for model ID, at the ATV dealer. The speakers come with all the harnesses and connections you will need. I believe that we paid around sixty bucks or so for the works. Hope this works for you. Keep the shinny side up.
