I go biking regularly with 3 mates, all of us have the same Sena SMH10 Bluetooth headset which we use for chat on the move.

Brian, the set up seems strange and complicated but it works. Quite often though a member of the group drops out, due to range sometimes, all you do is push the button 1, 2, or 3 taps dependant upon which order it was set up, and you hook straight back into the chat.

The range is up to say about 1/2 km in open countryside, but can be much less in town with buildings etc.

I can't recommend them highly enough, they have transformed our bike trips.

8 years old Costas! Most helmet manufacturers recommend replacement after 5 years.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Now that you mention that , should go and get them checked. That is a set rarely used so forgot all about it.

I had a small sized Schuberth helmet stored in an inside cupboard that my boys used when they were younger. When I got it out to check it the foam backing inside the lining had all crumbled into dust. Not used much but only good for the dustbin.

Don't forget that when you store a helmet the manufacturers recommend that the visor should be left wide open.

Parcel arrived on Monday as promised well packaged and all items present, nice quality box too!



So far I have only tested it connected to my phone to listen to music and recieve calls which works great with no distortion or crackling for either party. Hopefully I can get to test the bike to bike range at the weekend. The sound quality is very good given the price tag and plenty loud enough (my wife sneezed whilst talking to me and I nearly shat myself it was that loud straight down my ear holes-not good  :-\ ).

When I bought my 1150GS I had had a layoff for a while and when I dug out my old helmet to go and collect the bike, the lining had done the same. I had removed the lining, stuffed the helmet with newspaper, left the visor open and even sprayed it with some (Bob Heath?) helmet freshener stuff. I had no option but to wear it with two balaclavas underneath it for two trips before I got to the dealers to collect my new one.

The suspense is killing me, Perbunan! What's the verdict on your new intercom's bike to bike ability?

Hah,hah bit of a delay...... :D
Ok within 200m bike to bike then starts to loose signal, but still good value for the money and great for my phone or music. So nice budget priced unit.
