Bluetooth headsets for motorcycles are quick and easy to fit and use, many with voice activation as standard. But would you answer a call whilst riding?

An external catheter is a much better idea if you want to answer the call while riding. Here in the US, some of the Iron Butt™ riders (1000 miles in 24 hours, etc) use them to minimize non riding time.

Why in the hell would you want to?
I dont understand the Bluetooth phone connection on the bike! Im on the bike in part to not have those irritations!
Why spoinl an amazing passion by allowing someone else to intrude?

MMhh never, I don't have the ability to phone on the move, I don't want it. I don't listen to music. I just concentrate on my riding and the driving of others. What worries me most is the number of folk willing to take a call in the survey.I'd be interested to know what age these responders are, and how long they had been riding. NO call, and I mean NO call is worth taking when you are riding OR driving. I passed a driver the other day in the centre of a city , whas was reading her kindle as she drove along, READING HER KINDLE FFS !!!!

I did answered a call of nature in my leathers once , too cold and wet to stop but for about 2 mins I was warm ,,,,well I was soaked any way. Is that the same as taking a call?

you missed the point ...
@mercymercyred I don’t
think it’s the picking up the phone that’s the problem, it’s the discussing
some work losers problems or the missus telling you the dogs been sick on the
carpet, and whilst you discuss all that old guff you’re distracted enough to
pile into some old myopic doofer pulling out in front of you in his clapped Cortina.
We could argue that satnav and music is the same – but at least with them you
can ignore them when you want by turning the volume down or off or glancing at
satnav when its safer to do so. Phone calls by their nature demand our
attention. I think by reading the reports that’s what they are saying. But as
other have said, shouldn’t we be riding to get away from the damn phone calls
and emails? Have we become slaves?
