Acouple of years ago I bought a couple of chatter boxs and had nothing but problems with it, from communicating to my fellow riding partner to returning the thing. Now I'm starting to hear stories about how great they are. Which makes me wonder if one of the bikes was throwing off electrical interferance. Now that we have two new bikes I was wondering if it may be worth a try again. Do any of you guys have these things and what do you think about them?

If it weren't for the fear of hearing RCJohn screaming "Well, hot damn, smear my ass with peanut butter and turn the squirrels loose!" while I'm mid-corner, I might consider getting one.

The old HJC-90s suck. A friend and I bought them a few years ago, and they suck, it wasn't just you. Perhaps on a cruiser, for person to person comm, they would be OK, but as a radio to talk to another rider, on a sportbike, no way.

They have new ones now, might be better, but I've heard nothing about them.

Chatterbox

Our group uses the FRS Pros and the new X-2 with no problem. Great for those "HOLY SHIIIIITTTTT" turns to let you know to slow down.

Your faster than me and you'll probably die before me......

Don't be steeling Paul's like asswhipe. The truth is, Pete is too scared of his wife to ask for the money to purchase one.

We have the FRS Pro...yada yada and they work pretty damn good. I hear that the new model is much better. I am very glad that we purchased ours.

Talking

We have the HJC-90's and they do suck. The one intercom has nothing but interference all the time. As a matter of fact we lost one antennae this weekend and I emailed them to see if I could get one and also a new clamp for the helmet, mine broke. Seems to me you would be able to get parts for 2 year old models. We'll see what happens. Good thing is he takes turns with me so I don't always have the shitty one. Peanut butter? I didn't know squirrels liked peanut butter.....roflmao

Look here, butt-munch, yeah, the peanut butter part is Paul's but the squirrel part, the best part, is mine. And if you ever saw my wife, you'd be scared too.

Screw the Chatterbox...get a white board with a Magic Marker and you're all set...I try to Keep it primitive, just like my bike!

What we have here, is a failure to communicate...

My husband and I and several folks we ride with use them and they work darn good, except we have the very newest model and the microphone is too sensitive, so we went with the old earphone/microphone set up with the new units.

Also, for more detailed information, do a search for "Chatterbox" in these forums, as there was a topic about them awhile back and it was quite extensive.
