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....

I use a pair similar to that only Audiovox. They came with earbud/boom mics that fit in the helmet just fine. they have a VOX feature too with a CALL tone if needed. works fine, got 'em at a discount store.

Summertime the radio clips on pants, winter it goes into a jacket pocket. no complaints...:rolleyes:

      Introducing the Dash Frame system for the Kawasaki Teryx from Black Rhino Performance. The Dash Frame fits nicely into the middle of your dash, and is designed to closely follow the shape of the Kawasaki Teryx dash. This frame puts your gauges and switches at the same angle as the upper dash for easy viewing of the gauges and convenient placement of switches. The panel provides mounting for 3 2"

      So there is always chatter of the air/fuel mixture screw accessibility on the carburetors we all work on.   So I found this clip and thought it was interesting.   This goes back to a post today about carburetors not having an air/fuel adjustment screw as well as getting to the darn thing to make an adjustment! 
      Thsi videoclip  clarifies the way it’s found and taken care of for some of tye carbs we come across.
      Furthermore which I found to really like was the replacement air/fuel screw that was put back in place from the original making adjustment a ton easier! No more fancy angle screwdrivers.    Let me know what you think.  It’s a quick video.

Please understand i have not touched it yet but if his description is accurate im looking for suggestions on freeing it up before  having to tear it down. I'm hoping to get some great info from the pros on Quadcrazy.

      Anyone have any thoughts on the early Quad Sports?  My very first ATV was a 1985 LT230S,  me and a buddy purchased them brand new in 1985, rode those little bikes till the wheels fell off,  I would like to find one to restore for nostalgic reasons and to teach my 14 yo son to ride.  Nice meeting you all!
