I use them, and really like them. It is very nice to be warn people ahead of time about things. You have to play with them awhile to get them tuned good, and if the batteries are low they start to get very staticy. You cannot have long talks on them, but they do make the ride more enjoyable. The range on them really depends on the conditions. They work really good on flat land and clear skies. I usually ride in 2 to 5 person groups and most of the time everyone can talk to each other.
