Just ordered a pair of Cardo Scala bluetooth intercomm. Anybody use them, have any suggestions. The Q2's are for bike to bike comm. and can pair up with cell / gps / mp3. Will use for off road trail rides

Oh, heavens, no. Those are for BMWs. Us TW wierdos would never disrupt our spiritual oneness with our TWs with spoken words.

Guilty. We have a pair of helmet comms. Once you come to terms with the "un-Zenlike Abomination" aspect of them they're pretty handy, with a few caveats.



On group rides two guys can keep a handle on twenty if the guy riding point and the guy riding drag have them. The folks in the middle can focus on the scenery and two guys who are familliar with the area can quietly keep all the ducks in a row, slowing the group to deal with stragglers, injuries or breakdowns. They're hard to beat in a "man down" or "man missing" situation.



On pavement, given a reasonably quiet bike they work great. When I'm on my Concours with a full face helmet I have a hard time convincing people on the other end that I'm actually RIDING my motorcycle while talking to them because they can't tell. The TW is an entirely different story, as its harmonics and mechanical noises seem to be such that it plays heck with the noise cancelling circuitry when at speed. Even with a full face lid, messages tend to require repetition at highway speeds.

I was thinking about getting one just so I could hear the GPS directions.



I'm definitely looking forward to a ride report.

Now, that's a good idea! Saves from having to watch the GPS, increasing safety. Yup. That's my story, I'm sticking to it.

They really do work great. An excellent training tool too. I coached my wife through her motorcycle training using the Q2 Scalarider. They are awesome.

The FM radio makes the morning commute a little quicker and an occasional phone call taken has saved me some time and mileage too.



I have a friend who rides bikes for the border patrol as well as for enjoyment. He recommended these to me. Thanks shout out to Jesus from Arizona!
