Wow, those are great prices.

I bought a Pro-7-Sport system, with intercom, Kenwood 2-way, and music connector. I had technodreams of answering my cell, listening to music, and conversing with my better half as we enjoyed the hill country roads on the way to a B&B for the night.

Turned out Autocom didn't make a phone connector for my cheap old Nokia, the wife decided to never go pillion, and I don't ride that often with folks with compatible 2-way radios.

Sigh...Talk about lousy Bang for the Buck (my $10 ThrottleRocker wins the award for best BftB). :-(

Just so you know... they aren't giving you any special deals really. Autocom is having a 50% off sale directly, clearing out inventory for the new versions that are coming.

uh, so your saying Autocom is lousy because you have a cheap phone, a wife that wont ride with you and your friends don't have radios with the same frequency as you.:shock:

Come on fellas, lighten up.

I've been thinkin' 'bout buying a bike to bike system for me and my son.....so Autocom is a good bang for the buck. ( or only at half price? )

If he's not using it, then yeah, I'd say it was a waste of money for him. That's $200 he could have spent on something else for the bike.

That said, I absolutely love my Autocom, I use it for the intercom when Cass and I ride 2-up, plus I run my cell phone, V1, XM radio, CB, and soon to be Garmin 2730 through it. Works as intended.

Yup, for me, it just didn't work out. The other thing that didn't work out was the ear speakers. I fiddled a bunch with 'em, but couldn't hear squat (on the occasions I could use 'em) over 45 mph, what with my particular wind noise situation. :-| I solved that problem with an Autocom connector that lets me use my Etymotic ER-6s, but as mentioned, there's no real reason to use the whole system until I solve the phone connection problem, ride with FRS-equipped folks, and/or get a GPS. Until then, it's just wind/engine noise :bigokay: or the iPod straight in. :-P

I hear ya ... I have to use the same Autocom pigtail for connecting in my in-ear speakers (custom molded ear buds) rather than the helmet speakers. The helmet speakers just don't work for me unless I'm not wearing ear plugs, and then I can't hear anyway. The ear buds work great, are comfortable, and help save my hearing, so I couldn't be happier.

"farkles"

That reminds me of "Farkle", an old dice game I used to play back home in the sticks. You've gotta be real counrty to know that game..lol. I'm more of a "Washers" player anyway( did I say that?). You can take the boy outta the counrty but can't take the country outta the boy, even if he's a punk....geez I even have two sets of washer holes in my backyard. OK, I guess I have hillbilly roots. YeeHaw....and long live the Ramones.

Anybody have an Autocom for sale?

I'm just short the kitchen sink and the big screen tv. I do like the beer tap on the left bar though ... that really comes in handy on long rides. :D

Think there is a prelaunch checklist to make sure everything is working before takeoff? :lol:
