This is a take off from my other post, now that the wife rides on her own, i would like to get intercoms, what i have seen is they are so expensive my question is....do they work good enough to justify the cost???
We use the Scala Rider Q2 and really like them. We use them for 2-up and when we ride separately. Also came in handy when my wife was learning to ride her own bike--I could coach from the sideline. It provides comms and is bluetooth. It has a built in radio and accomodates mp3 and cell phone. Haven't experienced any interferrence issues and the batteries hold a charge for at least 8 hours (maybe longer, but 8hours is the longest we've used them). Don't know the real range but at least half a mile. We were able to find them on sale for under $200. There are many good wireless comm systems available but this one works well for us!
The wife and I use Autocoms system, they are very good but all comms are only as good as the radios you use. We had the basic radios but soon had to upgrade to better radios. If I was purchasing agin I would go even further and buy radios that I could plug an arial into and fix the arials onto the bikes.
ride by wire, or drive by wire. why is it called this? the whole point of it is that the cable connecting the grip to the throttle is eliminated. the literal term ride by wire is the opposite of what it is.
Hey fellow riders! I just watched this video about Big Ear custom motorcycle earbuds/hearing protection and I want to know if any of you here tried their products. I'd love to get myself a pair but I want to know if they're great first. Any other recommendation? Thanks...
Went for a ride later today after some final carb adjustments and noticed they brined the roads.
I looked at weather reports and seems we will be getting 1 to 3 inches of snow beginning Saturday evening.
I am really getting tired of this.
Some days I kind of like the handlebar tassels / braids I see on different bikes and some days I kind of think maybe they look a little goofy.
I was wondering if any of you have thoughts or opinions on them. I realize it is a personal preference but what you y'all think?
This is an idea I have seen on another forum, and it seemed like a lot of fun if enough people participate. This forum has more than enough activity that it should take off. The basic idea is this; while riding find certain objects or signs or whatever to take a pic of your bike in front of...
