I met a young man yesterday that used to ride pillion on his fathers old BMW, I think he said an R-75?, in the early 70's. He said they used to use a hose system connecting the two helmets to communicate. I never heard of that and wondered if anyone else had used one and can offer more info about it?
Yesterday, my companion and I had one of our best rides since we got the bike, riding for about four hours or so. The bike ran great, finally. I thought it was somewhat funny to just barely make out some fingers flinging around my helmet as she is trying to suggest a turn or need to stop.....all the while we have the blue tooth Cardo Q2.......and I keep having to mention that she USE it!
She did mention it was not voice activating from her end, and that she had tried everything she knew trying to get it to work and finally resorted back to using hand gestures, of which you can see very little trying to watch the road.
I was very hesitant to take a ride out to Patt Garret's Sheepskin shop
on I-78 in NE Pa (that road has been a nightmare).....but, the road has been resurfaced since our ride last year, and the ride was superb. 70mph+, 44 mpg two up with bags loaded, 65 degrees, the MP3 playing our favorite tunes.......simply a delightful days ride.
