In the past, if you used a Scala motorcycle headset, it was to dial someone with your phone via Bluetooth. Now, if you and your riding buddies have the updated Scala-rider Q2, you can still tell your dirty biker jokes over the air, but now with full duplex voice-activated / push to talk voice chat with up to three clients and a 500 meter range. Tack on an FM receiver (and Bluetooth 2.0, of course) and you've got yourself a $220 communications tool sure to relieve the crushing loneliness of wide open road -- that is, until a couple of rednecks take you down somewhere outside of New Orleans in a psyched out haze.
