So my husband and I are planning a 2 week vacation to Vancouver, stopping in Portland and Seattle, and other little cities on the way. We decided to prep for this ride by purchasing the BlueAnt Interphone (bluetooth) headset system.

- Where to Buy:
We bought it from NewEgg.com but it appears that they aren't selling these anymore, the last time I checked. I just installed and set it up to work with my iphone and so far so good! Apparently we'll be able to connect our iphones and talk to eachother while riding. I think this will be especially useful if I need to stop for a bathroom break or what not.
We also purchased their Portable Handsfree Car Kit as well. I hate fumbling for my earphones and I can't stand walking around with a bluetooth headset thing on my ear. I haven't used it just yet, but we've read great things about this product.
Last night was also the Scuderia's Ladies Event and it was really great to see women come together just to talk about riding! How often do you get to hang out with a bunch of cool women who ride and talk as much as you want about motorcycles? I'm guessing not very often. I also had the opportunity to help a few women find some overpants as well. I also had the pleasure of meeting Carla King, an author who's written a book about her adventures riding around the US on a Russian sidecar motorcycle. We're hoping to have her back as a guest speaker at the next event hosted at Scuderia.
