Best Ride Leader to Tailend Charlie coms

G'day Doonie 'ere. Lookin' for the best, cheapest and simplest emergency coms from ride leader to Tailend Charlie and vice versa. I'm not lookin for complicated bluetooth in your helmet stuff. Speaker and microphone clipped to the handle bars with a trans/receiver somewhere. When it beeps, you pull over and talk to the other bloke. Would be good if it could be swapped between bikes with leader / tailend changes.

Couldn't afford a 'GSA', so now it's an 'XSA' "I didn't do it! & whoever said I did, is a liar!"

A real Monarch would not give a rat's **** what's going on behind him. If perchance, he was the ride leader and noticed a distinct absence of riders behind him he should stop at the next pub, and await their appearance. But only, and I stress only, if he was thirsty.

Could be a while before I get some useful info, I reckon.

How big is your riding group? We went down this path with all various forms of Radio com. When you get more than 5 blokes spread out to keep out of the dust, and start hitting hills and gully's your reception turns to shit. Unless your on dead flat country then travel with 1 or 2 only, otherwise save your money.
