Bike to Bike headsets..


Recommended Posts

Me and skittles are aiming to do more long ride outs and hope to get headsets so we can talk (incase of getting lost ect)


I know the CBT centers use simple walkie-talkies with an attachment but after searching for half an hour i cant find what im looking for..


Just wondered if anyone had any recomendations for a set-up we could use?


Thanks in advance,

I generly find if you get a couple of cardboard cups (prefably McDonalds) and a good bit of string you will have no need for intercoms. Just keep the string tight or the reception goes to pot :lol:

Bit of elastic would be funnier. :lol:

My bike goes a little faster so i keep rolling up the MPH.. looking behind and slowing down.. elastic would give that an intresting recoil Haha

there are 2 basic ways of achieving bike to bike comms.


Using a 2 way radio on its own with a headset in your lid. This requires the use of the Vox function (voice operated transmit) which can be a bit tricky to set up IMO, however this is the cheapest way to do it.


Or, you can use a full set-up using either Starcom or Autocom, this allows the use of a remote PTT (press to talk) button mounted on the handlebar, the use of VOX if you have the patience to set it up, and also allows the use of rider to passenger, adding music, satnav and even mobile phones. You will still need the use of 2-way radios but this introduces a control box. This option is more expensive but it is a one time purchase (willow and I have had the starcom sets for about 4 years now and have mounted them on all our various bikes.


Have a look at these sites for more info


http://www.autocom.co.uk/


http://www.starcom1.com/


Both willow and I will have the systems running on the pudsey run so you can see them installed there, if anyone else has 2 way comms on the run then I will let you know what channell we are on and we can have a run channell!

I dont hate anyone. I tolerate them :lol: Unless they are especially stupid then I mock them till the cry and soil their underwear a little :P :P


You have made a mess aint you? :lol: :lol:


Personally I hated the earpieces that I had especially on long journeys, I prefer the muffled sound of the bike through earplugs as it gives me more concentration on the job in hand (riding) If I wanted to be on the road and chat I use the cars.
