Sena SR10

Is anyone using the Sena SR10 unit here? It connects via bluetooth to Sena or Scala headsets and hardwires to various FRS radios to extend the range for bike to bike communication. My Scala rider headset is only good for about 900 metres when there's nothing between myself and another rider. Distance is greatly reduced in city driving or when riding through the hills. If anyones has any experiance with the SR10 setup, let me know good or bad. They're about $200 each, plus the cost of radios and patch cables so I'd like to hear some feedback before pulling the trigger.

Thanks

I have been using the SR10 with a Sena Headset and it works great. The headset is loud and clear and most people don't even realize I'm on a motorcycle when talking on it even at highway speeds.
Using my Wouxun and Baofeng radios is no problem. Just make sure you order the right cables to interface with whatever brand radio you plan to use.

I'm using the SR10 with UHF and VHF hand held radios (think Ham Radios) and it works great.

The only gripe I have is that the SR10 takes the hands free profile on the headset so you can't use your cell phone. When I have everything setup the phone is just connected as a "media device" and the SR10 is connected as a "phone". Works fine and better than anything else I've used to date though.

Thanks for the feedback, it sounds like it would work for us from what I've read. I've seen people complain about the push to talk handlebar lead being too short. Is the an extention cable available that anyone's seen? I do the Kawasaki demo rides in Canada and I'm not always on the same bike each ride. Was thinking about putting the SR10 and radio in a tank bag so I can transfer it from bike to bike quickly but the stock remote button wire doesn't look like it would reach the bar then. Anyone else find a solution for this?

MIne works from a tank bag the cord is coiled like the radio adapter cord. But it's not a big deal with the bar mount to have it on the bar or somewhere else where. It's just a simple rubber wrap that you can undo in just a few seconds and cram it all in the tank bag.

On my most recent trip I kept the radio in the tank bag the SR10 attached to the bar using the rubber bar mount and the PTT button wrapped around the mirror stalk.
