    listen while you ride do you?

    hey guys,was wondering if you listen to music while you ride,what do you listen to,i like beck,foofighters,feeder,mainly rock i guess.i use a creative media player with a pair of sienizer ear buds they are good up to about 100mph and then the wind over takes,i always wear ear protection when not listening to music.

    I like to listen to stuff from the likes of Pink Floyd or if I am up for a really fast ride something purely instrumental.
    I have some really obscure Sony in ear "bud" type headphones that seem pretty good.

    Each ride on my Mille (rare as they are at the moment) is so special and so much about me and my bike that I just don't want to be distracted from the experience by some other twat intruding on our time together with his musical blatherings.
    I save that for the car. Just put an Mp3 player in the car so got loads of stuff on a drag and drop CD I made - everything from Purple and ACDC to Alasdair Roberts and Sufjan Stevens. The two albums that are never far from the car are If You Want Blood (You've Got It) and ZZ Top's Greatest Hits.

    Just earplugs and muffled mille noises into my ears when i'm out on the bike music would be too distracting

    Got me iPoo'd loaded with Nick Cave & some heavier tunes for the blast out of town only..i never use it in town or traffic congested areas...Have music & i will travel...has a habit of ramping up the speed tho, my throttle had taps out the beat, and the APE answers it.

    As above..Like the noise of the V-Twin/Akra too much......also don't wear ear protection as like to hear the bike (playing in bands for the last 20-odd years has caused enough hearing damage!)

    When I went touring round france with swmbo a couple of years ago we put a cd player through an intercom, since I got the Mille I put an ipod shuffle through my intercom (autocom) but to be honest I didn't bother putting it on again after that 1 day and took intercom mic / earphones out of helmet again just not the same with music, plus it can make you speed a bit more to a good track

    Sure swmbo will want it on though when she finally gets round to going on the back

    Don't listen to music when I'm riding guys but for all those that have said they like rock music, I would recommend listening to Nickelback. Got 3 of their albums now and they are very good!
