For most riders, a bike is not just a means of transportation helping them to get to work and back, it’s their way of life. Everyone tries to get the most comfortable, safe, and stylish gear often ignoring high-tech innovations designed to make riders’ lives easier. Helmet Bluetooth communication systems are among them. You surely want to enjoy nature, listen to the wind and roar of the engine, but how many times you were forced to stop to answer an important call or wanted to call someone and share some exciting news but just didn’t want to get off the road?

When using a Bluetooth communication system in your helmet, you can do it with a flick of a button without getting your eyes off the road, and your right hand off the throttle. Besides, if you don’t tend to be easily distracted by music, you can listen to your favorite tracks streaming from your phone, use voice command functionality to get turn-by-turn directions from GPS, and so on.

Missed an important one. it allows one to hear bluetooth radar detector alarms ;)
That's true :) But if the unit is in front of you, flashing lights would warn you anyway.

The flashing light of my radar detector, V1, like it's audible alarm is designed to be seen, and heard, inside a car. Neither are likely to get my attention quickly enough on the bike.

I use the JBV1 app through my bluetooth headset. The warnings can't be missed and it includes crowd sourced warning. This feature saved me once when I the cop was tucked out of sight and using instant on radar.

Just remember that if you use the bluetooth for intercom, you need a dual channel unit. Or, at least one that can listen to the phone while in intercom mode. The radar detector won't 'break in'.
