 Passion and Curiosity !

JENS LYCK

What’s it all about ?

Did the ”Passion and Curiosity” quote make you stop for a second and wonder what this site is about ?

Motorcyclelife.eu is documenting my motorcycle trips across most of Europe as well as modifications and improvements on my bikes.

It’s my hope that the content on the site will inspire other people to visit new places on their motorcycle – it’s such a great way to travel.

Motorcycles are all about passion, and the urge to travel and explore new places is caused by curiosity – So the quote describes the contents of the site in just two words.

You have now been warned about what is ahead – enjoy the site 🙂

Sena 10C Evo installed …

Removing the integrated Sena SC1 is a point of no return action as I had to cut the cables to the speakers and the microphone and the installation of the new 10C unit was not exactly easy, but it was definitely worth the effort.

A test with another (non SC1) Sena intercom showed that things are back to the usual Sena standard.

– range is at least 600 meters

– sound is clear with no static and you can hear voices clearly up to 120 km/h

– operation is simple and easy with the Sena wheel. Brilliant system !

– and with the 10C Evo I got a permanently installed helmet camera 🙂

This is what Schubert should have integrated in the C4 Pro !!!!

Microphone Bracket …

The integrated microphone in the C4 Pro must be removed to install the new Sena 10C Evo intercom.

So I had to make a small plastic bracket for the new microphone.

Intercom speakers …

The integrated speakers in the premium Schubert C4 Pro helmet are small cheap 30 mm units.

They are being replaced by the 40 mm speakers that comes with the Sena 10C Evo intercom.

Schubert C4 Pro intercom …

The Schubert C4 Pro is a great helmet, but the integrated Sena SC1 intercom sucks big time.

It will barely allow you to communicate with other Sena SC1 intercoms, and both sound and range is poor. And it will definitely not connect properly to other Sena intercom systems.

We tested four SC1 units on a day trip, and while we could talk one to one over short distances, neither range or sound quality was great. Group intercom was largely unsuccesful.

Another test ride with a SC1 and a Sena 10C, was just as horrible. Intercom was possible at stand still, but everything ended up in static noise over 50 kmh 🙁

To make everything absolutely hopeless, the SC1 intercom is operated by two small rubber buttons that is impossible to find with your gloves on, and the simple task of starting and ending an intercom chat requires several pushes of the rubber buttons.

The cheapest universal Sena intercom (the SMH-5) is just so much better than this piece of shit and is intuitive and easy to operate with gloves on !!!!!

There is no way I can accept this lack of quality and function, so despite the SC1 is nicely integrated in the Schubert helmet, it is being replaced with a proper and fully developed intercom – the Sena 10C Evo.

Going home …

Splitting up after a long day on quiet and beautiful backroads.

617 kms today 🙂
