Well, I got mine a couple of days ago and took it on a 90 minute trip and back. First it should be clarified that I have a weak to moderately powered bluetooth radio in my Sprint 6700 pocket pc phone. The phone was placed in the front pocket of my bag riding right behind my Corbin smuggler trunk. there were ocasional problems in establishing a connection, but for the most part I was connected and stayed connected fine. Not so if the phone was in the smuggler trunk. Then I just could not get a connection to the phone. Otherwise, worked great, especially at speeds up to 50mph. At 60 mph or above the voice recognition software on my phone had some trouble. I got the combo kit that comes with a bluetooth radio to connect via audio jack to the phone. I expect that radio is more powerful and will try that out maybe tomorrow. Overall, I am very satisfied and it was nice to take calls so easily while I was riding. As others have said, my listeners did not believe I was on the bike at speed until I honked the horn. Used it sparingly, but it will prove indispensable on longer rides.
