I have the Torx headsets that Cycle Gear sells and use them with my Cobra 18 mile walkies. Works great. Just don't have many people that I ride with regularly to use them with.

I'm also intersted in this topic. My father, brother, and I ride together so we would need a system that is not only for 2 people. We all have Motorola 8-mile radios for hunting, does anyone make a good plug in speaker/mic combo that actually works for the bike?

I have two of the 300.00 chatter box's my gf bought from cycle gear about 6 months ago. we used them about 4 times and just decided she didn't want them so i'd be willing to sell them both for the price of one. lemmie know if anyones interested.

they are the upgraded versions and they both can have the attachment headset for a passenger.

My wife, her parents and myself, use the motocomm helmet sets with the FRS radios. These have worked fairly well for us. We also have 2 chatterboxes, which are not that reliable (sometimes they work, sometimes they don't).

If they are one pin headsets. Cycle Gear carries the Torx headset. It's $50 and works pretty well. Even has a PTT button for your handlebar.

I just try to yell as loud as I can, then I use sign language as my backup (don't really know sign language so it's pretty funny to watch I'm sure)
