first of all i have done a search for this question.
I have a 2005 wing without a cb radio and no headssets at this time.
my wife rides a 1997 hd dyna glide convertable no sound system at all

I know i am asking for trouble wanting to be able to talk to her while we are on the bikes :22yikes:but she doesnt ride all that well and would make me more at ease if i can make sure everthing is ok without stoping
also talk to my friend that rides a hd full dresser with cb
I was getting ready to buy the bike mp3 cb radio but would like input from all of you guys before spending money and getting wrong components thanks for all the help and info :bow:

I'll put in a 4th vote for Scala Rider. My son and I use them. Works great. Talk on the phone and folks on the other end have no clue I'm riding my bike @ 50mph plus.

Not sure if your considering a Bluetooth solution. These will not communicate with your buddy that has the CB.

Also check out the Sena SMH 10. Very popular unit with the adventure rider boys. Has earbud options and receives ad2p(stereo).
Works great with a cell phone but may not want her to know that. About $250.00 for a pair if you catch a sale. Mr hit.com has great prices and has l other brands as well. Good luck.

get the scala

The scala is the way to go. I have mine connected to my Android phone, which also eliminates the need for a GPS, as well as a music system.

It can be used rider to rider (they claim up to 1 mile, but ymmv) or rider to passenger. A phone call will override music and a button reconnects you to your partner. Your partner can also sync theirs with their phone and you can still talk to each other.

My only complaint about them is that they sound a bit "tinny" when listening to music.

I have a Scala Q2 set for sale. I bought them from another member here. I was wanting to improve on the stock headsets and thought these would plug into the factory Honda harness but don't. I have $125 in the pair and will sell them for that. They aren't new, but are still in the box and it looks great.

Please let me know if the OP is not interested in the headset you have for sale. I'll PM you with some questions just in case. Thanks

I 2nd the opinion from Goldfever.... even though it isn't getting alot of love on this forum, the Sena smh-10 works great. I use it the same as you are talking about - - to talk to my SO who isn't a strong rider! It also pairs with the cellphone & I have taken numerous work phone calls & they didn't know I was riding at the time!! Lastly, I originally chose it based on the reviews at webbikeworld.com... it won their comparison tests.
good luck!

Bike to Bike

I have both the Scala Q4 and the Sena SMH-10 and prefer the Sena, stereo bluetooth streaming, talk to each rider individually, super easy controls, $239,00 a pair at cyclebots.com, long lasting battery. Just an opinion

You can plug them in if you get the 5 pin Honda to 3.5 mm adapter

Can the Scala Q4 and the Sena SMH-10 communicate to a bike on CB freq? The biggest problem I see if you meet up with some one that has CB you can't talk to the with FRS or one those type of units. Our club will sometimes ride with another club, since we all have CBs it is no problem. If we had FRS on different channels we would be out of luck. JMHO.

Scala can not natively transmit to CB band. I can't personally speak for the Sena so will leave that to someone else.
