My normal commute to work is 73-75 miles round trip... and I always have the music Jamming with the sena... and if you want to make a phone call, that works great too.... Last year is when I really used the bike to bike comms, my friend had one and was leading and I was in the rear... heading to Maggie valley last year... it was great to be able to communicate when I needed fuel (unfortunately, I always needed fuel first damn 1800 likes to eat and my tank is smaller). also the one of the other guys, we talked him in to getting one for this year... so will will have at least 4 people using them this trip...

My riding buddy is stuck on the Scala. It has some feature the Sena does not have. But every time I look for real world testing of bike to bike coms with 3/4 helmets and no or low shield the people are always using Sena. The Scala may work just as well. Just not seeing it anywhere.
There is a newer Sena now. But the price is nuts.

You may have to cover her eyes once in a while.
I see you are in Burlington. Nice area. My niece lives there on the end of Lake Ontario by the skyway.

They are actually into Hamilton by about 2km on Beach Blvd. Still not far from you.
Hard to tell when in Hamilton or Burlington.
