Suitable for Dirt Bikes

Chatterbox Motorcycles Bluetooth communicators are primarily aimed at the road riding market. The dirt bike segment is still a bit behind in using this technology. This in mind, I researched the market and chose what I believe are the best motorcycle Bluetooth headsets for off-road/dual sport/Adventure riding.

Bluetooth communication is a great option for dirt bikers. Major manufacturers such as Sena see a new market for their Sena 10R-01, which is a slimline model aimed at off-road riders.

Chatterbox Motorcycles Safety First

There are many opinions on the use of Bluetooth communicators for motorcycles.

You may find it difficult to respond quickly to a car coming in front of your or to an obstacle on the trail if you are listening to your music or distracted by group chatter or phone calls.

It all comes down to personal preference. Some riders believe that riding is all about solitude. They want to be able to disconnect from the rest of the world and just be with their bike.

Others find it a bonus to have the opportunity to do what you love and to keep in touch with riding friends.

We are connected 24/7 with our smartphones so it is only natural that technology has improved to allow us to ride our motorcycles on- or off-road.

Bluetooth Communication System: What can you do?

Talk to other riders in your group. This can be a great advantage as it allows you to warn others of potential problems and advise them of the best route to take if they come to a fork in a trail or intersection. You can also chat while you cruise along.

If you wish, you can make and receive calls while riding. Safety reasons may not be the best reason for some riders to do this, but it is always possible to pull over and stop riding if you are concerned.
