Re: Help with helmet headsets, please!

There is nothing wrong with the factory Goldwing 1500 intercom, or the CB, it is the sodding microphones that don't seem to last very long.
I have 5 helmets with headsets, in the past 5 years all have been replaced and 3 have faulty mikes again, not replacing any more.

Re: What cooler do you have/recommend
