Sounds good....cheers for the heads up!

 

Havent been that way for a while and these afternoon drenchings are to be avoided.  Morning or midday should be fine.

Not intending to hijack the thread, I'm more interested in the helmet communicators.  Can you briefly tell us what you have and where to buy it?

 

Thanks.

The ones we use are called "B+Comm" and are only sold in Japan, as far as I know, which is where I bought these. They are full duplex, so just like talking on the phone, integrate via Bluetooth with my phone with automatic answer and voice dialing, can also integrate with my Garmin Zumo GPS or any other Bluetooth device. The speakers remain mounted inside the helmets, while the transceiver and mic can just clip onto brackets on the helmet. My wife prefers an open-face helmet so her mic is a boom mic. I use a flip-up Shoei full-face, so my mic is on a wire velcro-ed to the end of the cheek pad, out of my way but close enough so my wife can hear me clearly. These have a range of about 1,500 meters for bike-to-bike talking, and remain clear until we get up to about 120kph, when they begin to get static. Battery gives us 10 hours of talk time and 300 hours standby.

 

These are top of the line communicators, the equal of 'Sena' and 'Scala,'  in the $250+ per unit range. However, these days you can find some very effective wireless helmet communicators on Ebay (with free shipping,) for under $150 for a pair. They just won't have the range (perhaps only 500 meters,) and start to lose signal at 90kph, and only have 6 hours talk time, etc.  Do an Ebay search of 'Motorcycle Helmet Communicators' and you'll see quite a few. Some can connect to 4-6 different units at the same time, other just two. Pretty inexpensive especially if you just want something for Driver to Pillion. You don't need the extended range.

I tracked down the model that we use... You can order if from Amazon Japan.

I went for a drive around the Samoeng loop about a year ago and was amazed at the amount of development since my last loop around 7 years before. In the past, I remember leaving the snake farms in Mae Rim and seeing very little sign of human habitation until hitting APIS at the Hong Dong end. Anicha.
