Bike to bike intercom system
« on: July 11, 2021, 07:42:09 pm »
Hi Guys, im new to this bike to bike comms and see the stuff can get quite expensive. Im looking for something cheap but effective. Dont need to sync with my phone or talk to hundred of other riders. Range can be within a couple of 100m.

All i want to do is chat with my laaitie on a outride to warn him of upcoming obstacles or for him to tell me if he came short.

Cheap cheap is the spirit system.
I've used it for a while and it does the trick.

An option to consider are Sena who are no 1 worldwide for a reason.

2 year guarantee,  constant improvements via free firmware updates , rock solid & simple to use  unique jog dial( no fumbling with buttons while riding)

www.senasouthafrica.co.za

https://bikegear.co.za/product-category/browse-by-accessories/rider-gear/sena-bluetooth-intercom-headsets/

They may cost slightly more than some cheaper far east alternatives but you get what you pay for.

I  still use a Sena that is a decade old.

Myself and a riding buddy have used the Spirit units for 2 yrs now - batteries still lasts 6-8 hrs on a charge, range is about 500m line of sight (connection gets bad quickly once you lose sight around corners or over hills, but seems as if that is the same for all makes).
Never had a problem in the rain.
I always use NoNoise earplugs, and have no problem hearing the other rider or my music on high volume
Paid R800 for mine 2nd hand, but new is always best - think they're around R1300 now

Go to you local electronics dealer get a set of cheap two way radios set them to vox  plug in the ear piece and away you go , should not cost you mor than R1000.
Bikes :  KTM 1190 Adventure R ,  KTM 690 Enduro R (scared the shit out of me so sold it ), BigBoy Revival 150 for the dorp.

Sun, Wind and Sail and for those colder days, My Bike.
