Decided to go for these, at $300.00 for pair...I thought it was time
to go into 2010. I leave for 1400 mi weekend on Friday and will put
to real test but for now these things are wonderful. I am not tech
savvy at all but even I could understand the directions . Install in
my Nolan 102 and wifes HJC took all of 15 min and we were talking to
each other (intercom) in 20. My 21 year old Son downloaded my MP3 on
my bluetooth phone and now I have tunes without wires. I do not think
I will use it much but called home at 70 mph and wife thought I was
pulled over. I have looked at communications for about 3 years (since
wife got her own bike) and have not pulled the trigger due to cost,
wires, complicated and range covered. I could not be happier. These
were made for what I wanted . ebay has them a bit cheaper but I went
with a guy in Fargo ND as he is closer if they did not work...
Appears to be a straight forward guy e-mailed him with an offer of
$300 for pair. http://radiorider.com/default.aspx I will update
next week or so if things change.

I got mine in last week. Purchased them through the ADV Rider vendor group buy from rocketmoto.com out of NH for $270 shipped. They're currently out of stock and not accepting new orders but are expecting more in soon.

I've used them on several short trips with my girlfriend and we are both very satisfied with them. Very simple to set up and use.

At 0-60mph phone does work pretty well. Above 60 not so good sometimes so I believe it is just road/helmet noise at that speed and maybe a "Garmin" thing. Don't need to talk while riding anyway but the wireless stereo XM is nice.
I wish they would hurry up and come out with earbud version but overall very nice unit with long battery life and was a good buy @$159.00.

I absolutely love the quality of mine. I got it at MrHit.com for $149 and the dual pack is only $269 now.
Hey, thanks for the link!

I ordered a dual set last night and just as you said, $269.00 + free shipping. I was notified that it has already shipped today. After reading all I could find on wireless bluetooth systems like this one, I decided on the Sena.

One of, if not the best, sources for honest reviews of any motorcycle products is www.webbikeworld.com The good folks there seemed to give it the nod over the new Scala G4 and the BlueAnt Interphone F4. I guess we'll have to see about that...stay tuned.

I feel sure I'm not the only one who would think it's appropriate for you to identify yourself as being affiliated with MrHit.com. Promoting a vendor site without actually telling people it's your site looks a lot like spam.

I haven't run my down yet in a day of riding. I'd say it is an easy 7 hours or so with a very chatty fiance' forever in my ear. I bought mine from RocketMoto and got great service. They really know their product. I got mine in 2 days from NE US to New Mexico.

Did you place the speakers behind the fabric or on top of it. Wondering if the fabric hurts the sound quality.

I put it on top. They sort of have that mesh over the speaker already. Make sure you have them lined up proper on a central axis from your ear canal. Just moving them a little bit makes a huge difference.

I bought the add-on for the ear buds just in case. So far I haven't need to swap it out. I can't stand wearing ear buds for too long at a time.

I have a Gramin GPS that also has an XM radio built in plus a Radar Detector (Escort). I have them going through a mixer that has a outlet plug out for the ear buds. Is there a Blue tooth that can work with this set-up so that I could go with this system and use the bike to bike, GPS, XM radio and Radar Detector. Again the last three items are coming out of a mixer. Thanks

I've got 3 different bluetooth adapters: Jabra A120S, Goertek & another one which the Camos retailers were pushing at the time that cost $75. The other two were ~$35 from dealextreme.com but good luck finding them anymore - wish I had brought a couple more. The Jabra will last all day (~8 hours) streaming music, GPS, RD to my new Sena headset. The Goertek & third one doesn't last quite as long about 6 hours maybe.

IMC Camos actually makes/made one (BTA something?) which could be switched between mono/stereo mode which is handy since apparently you can only have one A2DP connection at one time. Hope that helps.
