Question Ride Vermont Comm ? FRS anyone?

Does anyone coming to Ride Vermont 09 have bike to bike using FRS?

I have capability, but almost never use it, and leave it off the bike. Given the number of bikes coming this year it might be helpful to have someone else with radio.

If someone else has FRS, let me know and I'll plug mine in, it might help with logistics on the road.

Thanks!

I, of course, am wired. FRS/GMRS is ready.

I have CB on my bike, and I see a toggle to switch from CB to FRS. I have never used either (I have tried the CB once, but could not get it to work and never tried again). What will the BBD's need for FRS on RVT-2009?

There is no "need" for comm on ride Vermont. Frankly, most of the time I am riding, I am not interested in chatting. The World's Best Pillion Rider and I have intercom capability and never use it.

I was thinking that with upwards of 15 bikes that comm at the front and back of the group would help with keeping the group together and on the same road. That's why I asked if others had FRS. No one should be concerned if they don't have bike to bike comm.
