While on a cross country trip from PA and traveling at approximately 70 mph on my 650 V-Strom last summer in Wyoming, my son said over the Q-2 Scala rider “Dad, watch out”! an antelope had jumped the fence on my right as I was looking to my left; had I not hit the breaks with this warning from my son, I would have hit the antelope dead on. The Q2 Scala rider communicators saved me from something really bad happening; Regardless, these devices proved their weight in gold and possibly save my life.
My Dad and I recently started riding together and last year we took a trip a crossed the country. While on this trip, the owner of the Suzuki dealership that we got our bikes from let us borrow his Scala Rider Q2s, and they really helped to make the trip a lot better. To be able to communicate while riding helped us to see things that the other would have missed.
I purchased the Cardo Scala Rider G9 PowerSet approx. a year ago and have loved them since day one. My wife and I both ride…she rides a Harley Softail Deluxe and I ride a Harley Road Glide. Whether we use them for bike to bike communication or rider to passenger on the rare occasion that we ride two up, it works flawlessly. I particularly like the fact that we can communicate bike to bike over such a long distance, especially if we get separated in traffic, I can still talk to her and keep track of where she is.
My wife, Les and I picked up our G9 PowerSet on Thursday and took it out for our first test ride yesterday…. and they worked great, very happy with the results so far. After a run in with Bambi last fall we traded in our shorty style helmets for a couple of modular helmets. we had some concerns about communicating but now worries now. Plus being able to listen to our music and control it also… it will make the daily commute sooooo much better.
I know I’m sounding like a commercial here…LOL… but we are that pleased.
Being a rider with L’s I decided to do some research on Headsets so my partner could “coach” me through the basic fundamentals of motorcycle riding. After comprehensive research I decided on the scala rider Headset. Even down to the easy helmet set up I realised very quickly that having the scala rider would prove to be invaluable. In November 2012 after only approx 20 hrs of riding with L’s my partner and I embarked on a 1500k camping trip around Tasmania Australia.
