Dunno bout the scala. It is supposed to be good. Now for the However..... However, the sena can be linked to the goldwings audio with a bluetooth transmitter eliminating the wire tether. I like that idea.

I have the G4 and wouldn't leave home without it. The most current model is G9 which is supposed to be even better than the G4 with the ability to hook up more riders and also fixing some small issues with the G4.
My son and I have used the G4 for the past year and they are awesome. I use it in conjunction with the Sena SM10 to have complete wireless comms to my helmet. I listen to my Zumo which has satellite radio and MP3 audio when I ride by myself, talk bike to bike when my son and I are on outings, and I use it to talk to my passenger instead of the bike intercom. My phone is also paired to the G4 so I can receive/make phone calls.
If you're looking for bike to bike, the Scala Rider G4 or G9 is the way to go with loads of additional features.

I've got to agree with one of the previous replies. We have had the G4 powerset for almost 3 years. We use it on our weekend rides and also during our annual 2 week summer touring trip. We use it for bike to bike communication. I could not be happier with this unit. It has great range, is easily to hear from the internal mounted speakers and battery life is almost 2 days. We charge them each night when on a multiple day trip but have forgotten to charge one night and got almost another full day. So each unit will last approximately 12-14 hours of continuous use per charge.

We easily get 1/2 mile range and with the right conditions can get up to 1 mile. In the 3 years of ownership, we have not had a single problem with these headsets. We use them on open face helmets. I recommend them to anyone looking for a quality bike to bike communication system.

We have the Sena SMH10 and it's quite a good system. When I was buying it I was also seriously thinking about the UClear HBC200 see review here http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle- ... review.htm but it hadn't been released when I needed to buy. The only problem we have with the Sena is that my wife rides a Harley Sportster and the wind noise from her helmet makes it hard for me to hear her. The Uclear would have solved this (go see the video on the uclear home page)

Also have had very good experience with the Scala G4 system for the last three years.

My neighbor and myself have the Scala G9's and they are great. Bike to bike with are wifes hooked up as well. They have a range of approx 1.6 kms. and blue tooth works great as well. (if you really want to take a phone call and ruin your ride). you can hook up to 8 different riders at a time with the one+8 option.
