The cinematic visuals, fantastic narrative, incredible storyline and some of the greatest video game characters make it so. This article is not about the video game, but one of the helmets in the video game that I remembered when researching intercom technology. You see, the main character who you play as goes by the name of Commander Shepard. He starts the game with this suit of armor…

How To Install An Intercom In Your Motorcycle Helmet

Although this article is about motorcycle intercoms, this technology actually has a long, interesting history. Contrary to what a lot of people think, intercom technology didn’t start with telephones. They started with speaking tubes.  With a design very similar to the “two cans joined by a string” trope you see in children’s cartoons, speaking tubes were commonplace in commercial spaces. A lot of office buildings had them installed by engineers by the late 1800s. You could connect up to 25 different offices with the most advanced of these. Speaking tubes were followed by telephones to answer phone calls as intercom technology…

Vnetphone V6 Bluetooth – Remarkably Affordable Intercom

When I go on motorcycle rides with my girlfriend, it’s almost always a pain trying to speak to her through my helmet and the wind. One time, I ask her if she needed to “wanted to take a break” and she thought I said, “watch your weight”. The conversation that followed was awkward, as you can imagine.  Eventually, I snooped through intercoms on Amazon and came across the Vnetphone v6. Skeptical at first because of the abnormally low pricepoint, I bought it anyway because I was on a budget. But I still had a lot of questions. Would it have…

The Best Intercoms That Are Cheap Sena Alternatives

If you’re never ridden in a group ride before, it can seem daunting. For starters, you have no idea about whether the other guys in the group who you just met and are trying to look cool in front of think you’re weird for walking with your chest and shoulders out. Yeah, a lot of things that I don’t miss about being 19. Teenage insecurity aside, it still can be overwhelming to keep up with the dynamics of a group ride your first couple of times.

How To Best Listen To Music On A Motorcycle?

Now there’s a question you don’t get to see every day. “Listening to music while riding?” Yes. “Seriously? Yes. “There are so many things wrong with that I don’t even know where to begin.” Cool, let me begin for you. Why you think listening to music on a motorcycle is dangerous: The problem “I’ve read up on all those crashes on the highways. A lot of them were idiots with headphones.

Worried About Budget? Worry No More – Uclear AMP Go

I remember checking out the newly released 2017 Road King at the New York City Flagship store in Long Island, two years back.  There were two groups of people present.  Those of us who were infatuated but had financial constraints.  And the rest who were infatuated without financial constraints. As the salesman conversed with those in the latter group, I started a conversation with this kid from Stony Brook. He was in group 1 too. He had been riding for two years with a hand-me-down Honda DN-01 he got from his older brother.  “All I could afford after tuition was…
