Part of the reason for riding a motorcycle is to not have to talk to anyone.

I agree with the others here that talking on the phone while riding, is probably a bad idea.



But a helmet with a built in high end radar detector. That I'd like.

You know, this sounds like a really bad application of a really good idea. Don't we all complain about cell phone users in cars. Isn't motorcycle riding using more of the brain than anything short of a fighter jet.? I mean DAMN! Just what we need! Between the IDIOTS going out and being a$$holes stunt riding on public roads (in the proper environment it is plenty cool though, but not on my bike), riding in excess of 200MPH (now), and motorcyle dealers continuing to sell sport bikes to novices who then go out and get killed and maimed in steadily increasing numbers, it's just a matter of time before it is going to get damned difficult justifying allowing us on the damn road.



Done venting, where is my medication....

Actually it is the office that I've just got to get away from. One would think my role is to clean, powder and rediaper every keester in the company daily. Hey, wait...that IS what I do.



Dang, I need to go out for a ride with the cell phone OFF and in the tankbag.

Looks like us "ye olde pharts" do NOT want a Bluetooth (R) enabled lid any more that we want internet enabled toasters.



I really, really like the idea of the Lid with integrated Radar detector - not that I'd ever need a detector.

Another harebrained idea, and with an open face helmet, no less. Oh well, let the stupid yuppies splatter themselves all over the place.

The only problem I see, is that they will give motorcycling another black eye. So what's new. Chicago's Sun-Times Columnist Neil Steinberg is already calling all motorcyclists organ- donors, maybe he has some inside information from Motorola/MOMODESIGN.

Those are cool, but you can make any helmet a bluetooth one by installing a Sena SMH10 Bluetooth headset. Its pretty cool
I found them here BlueVision Wireless Motorcycle Bluetooth Headset and Intercom

Basic safety all the time!
You will lost your focus on driving! Much more on a traffic jam!

It only takes 1 very brief moment for someone to fail to yield your right of way. If our total focus is not on the road (100%) then what amount of your focus are you willing to give up when a split second decision determines our fate. A slight delay in observation or reaction to an event can cost lives. Let's not just consider ourselves...our decisions and their consequences affect others and the ones we love.
