There can be nothing like spending the weekend on long motorcycle journey. Being seated on the saddle of your favorite auto craft and driving out on hurdle free roads, leaving behind the conventionalities of daily life and letting the mind relax over the plainness of tarmac does mean a lot to every biker in the world. But how often is this journey enjoyed when riding alone? Since it is more fun when couple of people take part in this journey, today we find many such groups which have likeminded people who get together to take part in these trips. Calling themselves bikers, the people of these groups take their rides out on one weekend morning, geared up with accessories for a safe and comfortable journey.
Everything about the journey would be great when it comes to group biking except for the fact that one rider will not be able to communicate with the other, during the ride. This lack of communication often leaves each rider isolated from the other. But the world which has gifted people with some marvellous pieces of auto crafts has not turned its back for this communication gap. The answer is in the form of a gadget named Bluetooth Intercom which can be used by different riders to talk to each other as long as they are separated a distance which falls under the limits of the technology.
Bluetooth Intercom uses radio signals of the range 2.4 GHz to 2.48 GHz to create wireless mode of communication between riders who are within certain range of accessibility. The range of these devices varies from one product to the other but usually comes to about 900 metres to 1.6 km. The device has a simple headset which can be fixed to the helmet and can be used to interact with other bikers on road. The headsets can be connected to iPhones, mobile phones, MP3 players and other Bluetooth enabled devices to listen to music and also make phone calls. The headsets which are fixed to helmet are designed to work in the presence of wind noise, with the noise not affecting the communication process. Some companies have come up with headsets which are intelligent enough to sense wind speeds and adjust their volumes accordingly. Further, companies have also made these devices water resistant so that a rider can use the devices while riding in rain.
