I rode sport bikes for 35 plus years, cruisers for another 5 years plus. I know have a tour bike (Harley EG). I've used Bluetooth connected to my phone for last few years for music (the voices in my head get annoying at times) and passenger communication (better than hit on helmet to slow down or bathroom break). There are limitations to Bluetooth than I've found, battery live and connectivity. Depending on how much my wife and I talk my Uclear units are good for 4 to 6 hours of constant use. Not bad but always seem to die when I really want them. My units stay connected when riding very well. But when I stop, take helmet off, grab phone for pictures or other stuff and walk away from helmet the connection is lost. Connecting back no big deal but sometimes I forget. My question to those big time touring folks, is wired better. My EG has onboard driver and passenger 7 pin hookup with full separate controls, radio, intercom, CD, weather band, etc. Are wired headsets better and convenient to use. I know some of you have had Goldwings, Harleys, SVTC, etc. Do you use wired Headsets? If so what brand and why. Each head set are expensive ($150 plus), JM ($130), IMC ($85). Is the switch from utilizing bikes system better than Bluetooth thru phone? Any and all input is welcome. Thanks.
