I just got a used 2014 Street glide special and I am looking into bluetooth rider to rider options. And have a few questions.

Is the new HD Boom stereo capable of hooking up multiple bluetooth headsets and provide a rider/rider means of communication? What I mean by that is: can I hook up my bluetooth headset to the stereo, and have a buddy on a different bike connect to my bike and us talk to each other?

Next question is: Is there any device or phone app that will virtually allow us to do the stated above? We both connect to one phone/device and have means of communication.

I know many companies sell bluetooth rider to rider headsets and communication devices. Not currently looking to do all of that right now.

I'd like to take a simple pair of bluetooth headphones, connect them with another pair through a phone or device and be able to communicate with the other person. I realize the quality might not be all that great compared to these high end company products, just seeing if this is possible.
Thanks

Not at this time...there are several threads on this on the forum (I wrote some of them).

Most of us went with a Sena or Cardo unit; I wrote the work-around to make them function with the Boom phone function. UClear also contacted me and said my work-around also is good with their system.

If ALL you're looking for is a BT intercom (either with the passenger or bike-to-bike, with ability to interface with a phone independent of the Boom system) there are a bunch of relatively inexpensive Chinese knockoffs this this on eBay:

Can't speak to the quality of the units, or whether multiple (more than 2) of these will work together.

Chris:

I think you will be happier with the Senas than any of the Chinese knockoffs :)

When you get your Senas make sure you register the serial numbers on the Sena website for warranty support, and check to see if they have any firmware updates you can download/install.

Enjoy and ride safe!

You could get an app for your cell phone that makes it behave like a walkie-talkie. You can then talk to each other using your cell phones via bluetooth sync on your radios.
