I have seen threads with putting cbs on quads and such, which I think is actually pretty cool. I wouldnt go that far, as I have a handheld 40 channel cb unit, but I got a pair of motorola talkies from Dick's Sporting Goods - camo pair with PTT headsets, and they work great while riding with helmets, especially if your riding in a big group and someone gets stuck towards the rear to alert the front riders or if you get seperated.

Anyone else happen to use a system like this?

nice idea... but i wouldnt waste my time lol if i get stuck im epecting to get left behind or if somenoe else gets stuck they better know im not stopin.. haha na we check behind us every so often to make sure everyone is there.. good friend of ares died on sweet road in ohio. we was all rideing and he bumped someones tire causing him to go over the handle bars braking his neck and dieing with in mins. but we was rideing at night so when he wrecked his quad and it stalled it was harder to find him.. his tail light survived and was glowin when we seen it.. so now we just look behind us every so often.. so no need for wasted money here..

That is a pretty cool idea, but you would have to make sure at least 1 other person than you is wearing one Very Happy

lol, nope thats the fun of it, just talk to yourself all day! Haha, but yes, usually NOBODY has a pair of talkies, so I end up loaning a bud of mine my other one, still trying to get him to put a cb in his truck, and get a pair of these.

in dash or under the dash.. if it came with the mount just flip it around and under the dash.. well i guess that all depends on what the angle is of your dash. guess u wouldin want it way under there or straight up and down
