    Hmmm.... Rick I'm not sure that I follow you. Are you suggesting to basically open a phone call with your riding bud as a long range bike to bike intercom, or am I missing something?

    I bought a Sena 30k unit. There is definitely some things that I like about it, but I still have yet to get everything in the bluetooth world shaking hands the way that I like. Wires, while a bit of a pain, I'd run once and then have consistent performance forevermore. I'm still not sure that wireless has been a step forward for me overall, but I do enjoy not having my helmet tethered... so there is that.

    If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride that thing could do.

      Yes Matt, use the BT bike to bike most of the time but if you can't make contact or get separated by big distance then just make a cell call. I finally retired the Chatterbox last summer and went for a 20S EVO, blew me away how well the phone side of it worked though that wasn't something I bought it for or necessarily wanted. It was very nice streaming Pandora/Spotify and I've now totally ditched XM in the house, office and vehicles. Throw in Google Maps turn by turn which dims the music and even the GPS becomes less used...

        Here is a tip for kids with older Sena units.
        There has been a lot of talk about the batteries givin up the ghost. Maybe true.
        If you have one and it will not ever charge up and turn blue on a usb, try plugging it into a wall charger with micro usb, like your phone charger. Presto it will wake up and go blue in a while.
