I've been thinking about grabbing a bike to bike intercom, well 2 actually so if I ride with a buddy I have one for each of us. Battery powered portable seem like a good way to go.

So far it seems to be autocom for the best setup, any of you folks have any experience with this stuff?

Autocomm is by far the top of the line but have you priced them???? For me to get bike to bike with everything I needed right at $1300.
:eek:

Motocomm Audioboss. It is probably the least expensive but works great. I road with my wife and we could talk fairly easily at highway speeds. We did have to speak up a little because we were wearing ear plugs. I also used it plugged into my cell phone and FRS and tested both out. No problems. Mine came with a faulty push-to-talk but they are sending me a replacement. It comes with two and since my wife didn't need it, I used the other. You can also plug in a music device. Only problem I had was the low/med/high voice adjustment and the wind keying the mic causing the music to fade. This happened above about 60 mph.

It comes with everything you need and costs between $150 and $175. I use a flip face helment and haven't figured a good way to run the cable for the mic. I was unable to use the open face helmet mic because the boom wasn't long enough but I'm told longer ones are available.

Either way, I am very happy with the performance.
