    Check out the J&M CB J&M JCMB-2003 Systems for Cruisers It will allow you to talk Bike to Bike, Pilot to Passenger, you can plug in audio (MP3 or ipod of iphone) for music, and it has Weather Stations. I have used this product and they work well. Been around for a while too.

    We use the Chatterbox X-1slim.

    Bike to bike they claim 5 miles (so far we have successfully used it in real life at 2 - 3 miles). Rider / passenger can be wireless (separate unit) or wired (just a headset). Blue tooth for GPS, music, phone etc. Built in FM radio. Have not had it in the rain, but is suppose to be water proof.

    So far we have been very happy, both with the units and the company.

    +1 on the Sena Units. I read a lot of reviews of the various units available and the Sena Units always came out on top among users that had tried different models.

    Cycle Bots usually has some of the best pricing I have found.

    I have to agree with Futurerider I like the XSlim. I have a unique ability, in market research, and spent several hours on this kind of communication before getting this unit. It has meet and my expectations in every area but the mileage between units. During my research I looked everywhere from military to civilian only neglecting the Police force systems. The X1Slim seemed to have it all to meet group needs.

    Remember you are not alone whatever system, you purchase, in nearly every case the people you ride with will have to have the same one.
