ride to / from Edmonton - southern Alberta

Post by hap2 »



I'm in southern Alberta & was wondering if anybody needs a riding partner to go for a short 6 hr trip up Hwy 21. Ain't that much fun riding solo & one-up, so another bike or 2 wud b nice. Planning to go to Edmonton area probly in about 6 wks giver take for about a week. I pull a trailer fyi. I have a hook up cb / intercom on the bike, but don't have any headsets for it. I would like to get headsets/mic (one for passenger, one for me), but not sure what kind to get or how to work it & don't wanna buy new helmet with them already in them, so just askin for some feedback on that as well. I've been told Scala in a good brand.

Thanx

There are a number of headsets available for the GoldWing. The most popular and probably easiest to get are made by J&M. Another is Edsets. You can google those for more info. What brand of helmet do you have? Not sure Scala has a plug and play system specific to the GoldWing.

Would u believe I can't remember the brand name of the helmet I wear? The helmet is not where I can easily get at it right now, so if u can wait a day or 2, I can sure get it for u. It IS a full-face helmet if that means anything. The passenger helmet is an open face..a real oldy, but DOT approved.

Here's a bargain but you have to act fast.

Thanx for the link. I would like to see how it (or something similar) works first.

I guess the first thing to get is someone to talk to & / or is willing to take a trip with me...preferably on another bike.

That seems kinda backwards to me but do what you like. Trying to save you a pile of money. You don't need anyone to talk to first. You need something you can listen with. Before talking you can listen to the radio or CB yourself. Your first step is to buy the necessary equipment from a reliable manufacturer.

No...I figure if I don't first have anybody willing to talk to me with the equipment, why even get it? For music, I listen to the radio or ipod. Kinda like why get a bicycle built for 2 of there's only 1? But whatever.
