100% agree, talking on a phone has no place when you are driving or riding a bike
Iv seen dudes on a bike, texting while rolling!:eek: On the bicycle, all the time. Look mom, no hands no eyes, if I fall Ill sue the neighborhood. This texting addiction is baaaad. What can be so important that you will make the choice to risk your and someone else's life to look at it.

Id like the intercom for safety use not for chit-chat. I have four brain cells left and I need all of them to balance the Rocket.
