Read the special articles on Bluetooth and motorcycles:

Last year you had problems finding any device that could communicate using the Bluetooth technology meant for motorcycles.

This year it would seem that the majority of manufacturers offer Bluetooth:- helmets, GPS, intercom, telephones... you name it, the list is getting longer.

Nextel's Talk'N'Tel
Here's an interesting Bluetooth communication device for motorcycles. It's from the French manufacturer Nextel. Their device, the Talk'N'Tel is a Bluetooth equipped intercom, allowing you to communicate with your pillion passenger on your motorcycle with or without wires. The difference with other manufacturers is that the intercom is not wired or bolted to your motorcycle, but is clipped to your belt. This has an added advantage that a) you don't need to unplug to dismount your motorcycle b) you can take it with you onto any motorcycle (you can off course mount the unit on your motorcycle and use it's 12V system).

The unit allows you to communicate using Bluetooth if your helmet is equipped with that technology (they also offer helmet kits, from BMW or other brands). You can use a Bluetooth equipped telephone, or use a connector to use it with a conventional GSM telephone. Or you can connect your Talk'N'Tel to your favorite MP3 player or GPS.

The standard Talk'N'Tel unit will set you back 499 €, while the new fully Bluetooth system (out in May this year) will cost 600 €.

I know that there's a lot of resistance to motorcycle riders using telephones, but many are businessfolks who need to stay in touch. The obvious smart thing is when you do receive a call, is move to the side of the road and then talk....
