Will this Bluetooth CB set up Work?

I have wanted to add a CB radio to my mount for years.

Last year I bought a Cobra hand held unit which worked fine, even though I know It could have had better reception with the addition of a proper antenna.

What I did not like about the set up was all of the wires. I don't like being tethered to the machine.

At the bike show earlier this year, I saw a system called ScalaRider, which provides wireless rider/passenger intercom as well as working with a Bluetooth enabled cell phone. I really do not care about cell phone connectivity, but since it is designed to work this way, I will take it.

Here is a link to the ScalaRider product: http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?...12m3#more_info

I am particulary impressed with how the microphone/hardware package clamps onto the helmet.

The missing link was CB hook-up. I came across this product which seems to be able to interface with the CB and work as a Bluetooth device. Here is the link to the Albrecht BPA 100 Bluetooth Adaptor: http://www.bb-shopping.com/products/...d=&prodid=2163

From what I can see, think that this set-up will do the trick but I will would welcome input from community members who have more knowledge about CB radios in a motorcycle application than I do. Since I know nada, this will not be hard.

Are there any other similar Bluetooth adapters available?

Thanks for your points of view.

This looks really cool, I don't know how well it will work on a CB with all of the chatter it might run down your batteries in the headset really fast. But if you turn up the squelch on the CB you can eliminate most of that.
