Anyone using a walkie talkie system, instead of bluetooth, to communicate between bikes?

I don't need to listen to music (the road is my music) or answer phone calls while I'm riding. Just want the ability to talk to my daughter, who's no more than 20-30 yards away from me at any given time.

I'm currently targeting a set of Motorola Talkabouts to be used in VOX (voice-activated) mode. Just not sure which headset would work best from inside a helmet (currently considering a surveillance type). A friend of mine even uses a throat mic while he's riding; it does a good job of filtering out the wind, he says.

Thanks in advance.

tried walkie talkies with head set a few years ago and it became a huge pain in the rear.. (cords , pushing talk button, right channle, and a radio got lost) so i switched to really really cheap in helmet BT headsets and so far am loveing them... you dont have to pay out the rump for a name brand one look on ebay

I tried a set of Sena10 bluetooths not too long ago and was disappointed with the quality of bike-to-bike chatter. My daughter said that the music and phone aspects were crystal clear, but the bike-to-bike conversations weren't.

I'm only interested in consistently clear and strong bike-to-bike conversations.

Thanks for your input.

P.S. As you know, and when properly set up, they can be used in voice-activated mode and do not require pushing a button.

ya if you have that on slight noises set it off and walkietalkies being a one talking at a time it made converting difficult ....
but again this is just my personal experience and might be different for others as i am known to buy the absolute cheapest option available.... and for the longest time i was useing the (very free) yell at one another at stops method and TBO it really really sucked
