Walkie Talkies....

Recommended Posts

Guest

A few of us are heading down to Hatfield-McCoy in April and are looking to get headsets for our existing walkies, or get a "better" system.

Thoughts?

Setups?

Headsets?

Build fires on our seats and do smoke signals?

Thanks!

Anybody tried a Buetooth headset inside a helmet?!

I seen a movie called Torque that they used some sort of clamp on device outside of their helmet for their cell phones.I would think those adapters that go on your neck (like the Navy Seals use)would work better.If you have a Nextel phone it has a walkie talkie function that works up to six miles outside of service area.We've tried walkie talkies designed for hunting that were rated for 25 miles;but with all the hills and ravines in my area they don't work but the Nextel does...

That was my idea, (we have nextels) why I suggested the bluetooth? I guess it would be hard to talk with bluetooth... but maybe just direct connect?

Iv'e tried it once on a trail ride. The problem I found was I couldn't hear if there was another bike or quad behind me. I'm into music way to much for my own good. I also found myself singing with the songs and not paying full attention to my surroundings. Nothing bad ever came out of it, but I could see myself making a critical mistake.

I highly recommend finding a different retailer. I have had very bad exp. with Ridegear.com. They have the worst customer service I have ever seen. They sent me the wrong grab bar and now they won't reply to an email and it is impossible to get through on the phone.

Chatterboxes seem like a good solution, but OF COURSE more than I'm willing to spend ;)

What about regular FRS radios? Motorola?

Thanks for all the suggestions up to now!

Thanks:biggrin:I think I'll have to do a practice ride with one and see how I like it first....I'm just afraid of not being able to hear other bikes, as welll as my own if there's something wrong....thanks for the info :wink:

We have talked about the walkie talkies with the inside the helmet setup. I was wondering if anyone had tried these. They do seem kinda expensive.

I picked up this set up :wink:

They work surprising well even in the canyons !

Motorola T8550r Gmrs/Frs 2-Way Radios With 18-Mile Radios - Gps Gmrs

I hate to sound ig'narnt, but did you also buy it from the vendor who's link you provided?

I'm wary of no-name vendors....been burnt a few times in the past and would rather stay with known storefronts....even if it costs me a few pennies more....

      So I was looking at my John Deere today and though, how could I make this cooler. So I tinted the windows. Lol.
       
      As I got home I was staring at my Polaris and the wife’s kfx. I thought I would have to replace the crank because of piston slap on the Polaris. Turns out I just had to adjust the choke cable a tad more. Runs great.
       
      Why do we have insurance if we only need it sometimes, and that’s questionable.
