Re: Communication system ?
Sena gets my vote. Super simple to sync with other units and phone. Once sync, no need to do it again unless you reset the unit for some reason. Super simple to use even with gloves on and it took like 30 seconds to figure it all out. Phone to the helmet, very good reception and depending on windscreen adjustment, person on the other end can't tell if I am on the bike or not. Can't tell you about music, use the stereo on the bike. Intercom is great. Bike to bike is pretty much line of sight and a few turns in the hills. If the connection breaks due to terrain, it will reconnect automatically once it is close enough again. Very easy to use and very easy to understand the other rider. Simple push of a button and you are talking. Wind noise, what wind noise. I have to actually turn my unit down even with ear plugs it is so loud. I have talked on the thing for 2 hours back and forth with another rider, then used it for the next three days without charging. Just in case, I do carry the car charger that can be used while using the unit. I have no complaints about the Sena. Any issues I have had have been addressed by Sena and issues resolved.
Best thing, no wires. Get off the bike for a quick break, or get gas etc, no wires! And it still works of course. This is great fun, as your riding partner is dealing with someone (with their helmet still on) just connect and start "whispering" things in their ears, see if you can mess them up.
Best part is it's the holiday season, go to the Sena Facebook page and see if they are having any contests to give units away. I got my first unit this way, won it, free yahoo!! last year. As soon as I saw how great it worked, bought another.
