Many people feel that one of the best parts about riding is not having to talk to or even more important, listen to somebody else.
Kinda gives you time with your own thoughts.

That said, unless you are on a bike with a big fairing like a touring rig, you are unlikely to be satisfied with the sound quality and mic activation. IMHO

I agree with this 100%. when I use to ride it was so nice to not have to talk with anyone except for when we stopped somewhere. Best feeling in the world riding with just the tune of your bike.

I know 2wheel toys had a good deal on the Scala 2 system.
I use chatterbox xbi2 bluetooth and it works well at anything under 50.
Over that, the wind and exhaust noise get too loud.

I have Midland 2-way radios with voice activated throat mics. Had to modify the ear bud a little, but the range is awesome, & they're good for basic communication. Can't hold a full out conversation, though.

Me and a couple of riding buddies have the Scala G4. It works great! We've gone to just leaving the channel open constantly and talk a big part of the time we're riding. We actually wear ear buds hooked to MP3 (in addition to Scala speakers) and listen to music on very low volume and we can still hear each other talk. They work fantastic and make riding with your good friends that much more enjoyable.

We've only had minor problems caused by a bad connection. We just shut them off and turn back on. Problem solved. And we only get wind noise when somebody opens their visor all the way for whatever reason.

I can also link it to my phone and call people. They have no clue I'm even on the bike. Speed has not been an issue for clarity. I highly recommend them.

I bought the Scala Rider system for a ~5,000 mile trip to Utah and back.

IndyRC is right on the dot.
