bike to bike intercom-the cheapest way?

my wife is just learning to ride. i would like a way to talk to her while riding without going all out on a stereo/cell phone, etc. system. can anyone recommend a low cost system that will allow us to talk while at close range? we don't want to get too extravagent.

Not sure what low cost means to you but my wife and I have the Chatterbox system and we've been VERY happy with it.

Bought it from here, great people, very helpful to make sure you get everything you need without trying to oversell you.

chatterbox gets a lot of press, and i would like to see what else is recommended by others.
low cost means the best bang for my dollar.

I would say the cheapest method would be to tie a string from helmet to helmet and make sure it is really taught when you are speaking.

I just happen to have a Chatterbox unit for sale. It has headsets for both rider and passenger. It's the GMRSX1 unit, with a range of 5 miles (to other Chatterbox users). Not a thing wrong with it. A buddy bought one last year so I got one. He just sold his so now I have no use for it.


Send me a PM if you're interested.

Don't forget you have to have the cups.

Does anyone know how the Scala rider system mounts to the helmet? is it permanent or does it go on and off easily?

Blue ant has a system that will let you go helmet to helmet and sync with your cell phone if you like.
