Do you have the Honda on-board intercom system or are you needing the electronics that the headsets conect to also?

We really like the Cardo Scala Q2 Rider Teamset. My wife and I have a set and one of my brothers and his wife has a set. My brother and I traveled about 650 miles with our units linked talking the whole time. We lost comm twice. Once, there was a building between us and the other time he passed a truck and I had to wait for another opening. The only thing we don't like about them is the intercom stayed keyed all the time. To listen to my mp3 player, I have to manually kill the intercom. Otherwise, I really like it. When riding alone, I use my mp3 player with it. It has a built in fm radio, but it's pretty worthless unless your just riding local with a local strong radio station.

Jim, I'm just offering another perspective. My wife and I got our first Goldwing in 2002. It was a '79 fully fitted with a bunch of fiberglass crap. Stripped it frame up and started over. I got us a set of intercoms and we took a trip to Arkansas.
I survived a bad wreck in 78. I still live with the effects. I'm the kinda guy who wants to pay attention to the road and not be distracted. Your attention to the surroundings is your life. I love that woman but she wouldn't shut up all the way to Bull Shoals and back. She'd say things like Ohh look over there! While I was trying to keep the bike from sending us off the side of a mountain. I'm not saying your wife talks too much but statistically, she could.
We rode that bike another fifty thousand miles. Without the intercom. She stood on the pegs and yelled in my ear.

84 Standard. Fairly bone stock
The Kitchen Bike. Still on the drawing board.

Here's what I used for a couple of years. Motocomm Riderlink ST-1. Not quite as cheap as the Nady system but it's very complete and a very decent system for the cost. The company has great customer service too!

My wife's brother once said that if talking burned calories, she'd weigh 39 pounds. Sometimes I think he's right.
