Good to know: Making phone calls while driving
If you have a motorcycle headset and mobile phone connected, you can also take phone calls while driving. A motorcycle headset with voice control also allows you to make calls yourself. However, it must not be necessary to take the mobile phone into your own hands and operate it. This would be even more dangerous on the motorcycle than it is already in the car.
Attention: We advise you to refrain from making phone calls during demanding maneuvers. Concentrate fully on the ride if necessary.
