Chatterbox GMRS--X1 Bluetooth "Ok, maybe it seems more like something your mom and dad would use on their Gold wing, but a chatterbox system is actually pretty handy for hardcore sport riders. whether you have your girl on the back or are ripping with your crew it's nice to be able to communicate-particularly if there's a cop around the corner.
"The GMRS-x1 bluetooth (General Mobile radio Service) lets you communicate up to 5 miles with other users or by simply stringing a cord to your passenger, but it also allows wireless phone and iPod usage (with the optional iPod adapter) as well.
"I used the x-1 bluetooth on a long haul with the old lady as well as on a canyon ride, and found it impeccable in both instances. Some tunes are nice on highway rides, and the phone option is there as well (though nobody really calls me anyway). being able to talk about the sights adds an extra dimension to a sport-touring ride, while getting (or giving) a warning about a dirty corner can save your ass too." $399.95 http://www.chatterboxusa.com (888) 452-2269 -Dave
Sparx Rebel Helmet "We would all like to own top-of-the-line gear, but in reality most of us have to live within our means. Sparx exploded onto the scene with the goal of dominating the budget helmet market.
"When I heard it was offering a five-year crash replacement for under $140 I was a bit skeptical, but after wearing the helmet around town, I have to admit I was impressed. while it lacks some of the fancy features of a more expensive helmet, it still fits my head well and gets the job done. on top of that the rebel design features images of che Guevara and makes me look like I just finished fighting in the jungles with a group of rebels.
"Sick graphics, decent comfort, affordable price and advertisements with half-naked chicks-I'm sold." $139.99 http://www.sparxhelmets.com (800) 595-0080 -John
