I want to get the chatter box, but like someone siad before, if none of ur friends have it, then whats the point??? Listen to AM radio?? althou the chatterbox, actually alow u to plug ur nokia phone into it, but i'm not too sure if it is a good idea to talk on the phone while u ride.. its ok if ur doing long trips on the hiway. but in the corners.... anyways u guys get the idea. Its advantages out weighs the dis. look at it.
yes its going to have to have wires(kev) but they are inside ur helmt, which means not visible, and looks clean. where would u put ur FRS walkie talking if u were wearing leathers??? Or even just a regular riding jacket? i hate having so many wires all over the place. I like group riding alot, and in group riding communication is very important. We can even start a new thread just talking about the art of group riding.
TRuth is that everyone rides a bit differently. for example some ppl like to tap on the breaks once in a while, or before corners when they dun really have to. the person right behind him would then think perhaps something is wrong, and slam on the breaks, and cause a whole chain reaction to the bikers behind them, since they are not aware of whats happening. But with proper communication, if there was a bogey(cops) then the first would be able to warn riders, so that they don't blast out corners on standing wheelies.
WE CAN ALL LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER is one of the most important features of chatterbox. I wouldent worry about someone talking to me if i'm in mid corner, because in freddie spencer racing school, the instructor gives u insturctions during mid corner. And if its just a comment from a friend i wouldent worry too much about it. i'm not saying u should talk back during mid corner, TALK BACK WHEN U FEEL ITS APPROPRIATE FOR UR SELF. Anyways, just my $.02. I'm going to ask my mechanic, he can get in chatterbox if u guys are thinking of doing a Goupe Purchase, i need to know how many would be INTERESTED, not necessarily mean buy. I just need to know a rough amt, so i can ask him. so plz reply, thanks guys.
