My wife rides as a passenger on my vstar 1100, and I was wondering if any of you know an inexpensive system for helmet to helmet communication. Presently she bangs on my hips, and while not unpleasant, it limits our vocabulary, eh. We have modular style helmets.
Thanks. ;)

Personally I'd probably go with a Bluetooth setup. I've got a Modular Nolan 102. My GF doesn't ride so I don't need one like you do, but thinking bout bike to bike with riding buddies.

Noise

We deal with a lot of noise. I tried a cheap set, it did not work above 50 MPH. And the mich was active all the time. We used it once.

I have personally been using the Motocomm RiderLink ST-1. It was about $160 and has been well worth the money. It came with two styles of mics for both passenger and rider. They reduce wind noice significantly and I absolutely love mine! plus you can hook up an MP3 player and both listen, along with a bunch of other stuff like CB radio, cell phone, and GPS. And there is no need for a PTT when talking to the passenger. It functions like a phone would. Plus the kit comes with everything you need. Definitely worth looking into.

More info..sorry

Some intercoms require a Push to Talk to communicate with the passenger. This one doesn't. The kit comes with everything needed for both the rider and passenger. the $160 includes a boom mic and solid mount mic(for full face) for EACH (4 mics total). Also the communicator box, all adapter cables a PTT for radio use.... literally EVERYTHING needed to plug in and go are included in the kit.. I set mine up in ten minutes and worked and sounded as good as a Goldwing intercom. Here's the link so you can see for yourself. NOTHING ELSE IS REQUIRED TO PURCHASE :D

Thank you

The links don't work Einstein
I appreciate the effort required by tgrshk19 to respond to my original post, and I would refrain from calling someone something sarcastic like "Einstein". It is roughly the eqivalent of calling you smart ass.
Thanks tgr.

My wife and I use a set of waterproof Midland radios that we got at Cabella's for about $85. Where we ride, there isn't cell service, so blue tooth was out. The radios came with headsets. The vox doesn't work very well because of the wind noise, but the ptt is what we use. We each ride out own bike, and the range is more than enough. They came with the charger and lithium batteries. Some times I get annoyed with the headset in my ear though.
