Has anyone used these Backchat Vixen Motorcycle Intercom - webBikeWorld or have a recommendation for a passenger to pillion intercom?
Just for rider to pillon comm, not to other bikes.

I've used my Scala Rider Q2 for the purpose you are looking for. It worked great. I've also used it bike-to-bike with great results. The only advice I have if you go with the Q2 is to look up the modification to cut off the speakers and add a port for headphones. Earbuds are night and day better than the included speakers. Mod cost is about $5.00 if you already have a soldering iron.

EDIT: I just searched for the Backchat Vixen and cannot find it anywhere. I'm finding forum links and reviews, but not where to actually buy the product.

You can get a Scala Rider Q2 Multi-Set for under $175 on eBay that would fill both bike-to-bike and rider-to-passenger needs.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I've never heard of the Backchat system, Mayhem. But I have used the Scala Q2 system that Chris recommended, and I've also owned the F4 Interphone system by Blueant.

I preferred the Blueant system personally - it paired with everything I ever tried without fail, great (stereo) sound quality, large controls were easy to use with gloves, easy install, and the battery life was amazing (about 8 hours - more than I needed for most rides).

I also have the Scala Rider Q2. Ive used it the past 2 years and love it except for the stupid speakers, I can never get them to a comfortable spot. I cant believe I hadn't though of cutting them off and installing a headphone jack. Great tip Chris +1
