My "next" wife now has a bike and is progressing through the learning process. Being able to communicate with her as she builds her experience should significantly speed learning and be a positive safety factor. I think it would also improve her confidence level, which is critical in these early stages and hopefully will help prevent her from getting into any hazardous situations.
My research has identified hundreds of product options with very little in the way of rider reviews as to system performance. So I defer to the experience of our forum to educate me and share your experiences with different systems you have used.
She wears a has full face helmet and I use a full pull-down visor helmet.
Price is always an issue - but quality - ease of use - comfort - rechargeable - and reliability are the real priorities. Hooking up to cell-phone or to multiple riders or music are very low priority.
Basically I want a good quality, comfortable, 2-way voice-activated intercom.
Thanks in advance. As always the wisdom on this Forum is much appreciated.
