Music while riding?

So, what do you folks listen to while you are riding? I am a big fan of Chemical Brothers but always want something upbeat on the sport bike.

I listen out for tires screeching, engines revving, horns honking, etc... using all available potential of my ears to stereoscopically tell me where they are located, coming from, and headed towards.

RATM, Evermore, Chemical Brothers, Disturbed, 311, The Roots, K. West. I have a whole slew of music. I was just telling Suh-C and ChiefBD on Sunday that when the Zune is on random and i get a slow jam in the mix, it usually killls the ride.... until Rage comes on.

I never thought I'd like to listen to a stereo while riding until I got my new bike. It has a Harmon Kardon (sp?) system on it and it rocks.

I gotta say after having my Harley i miss the tunes, but not sure I'll use any on the sportbike.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

All the siren manufacturers sure have the public fooled. Not to mention someone honking because they know they can not stop for the red and you're about to got the green and are about to proceed into the intersection perpendicular to them... but whatever...

I only have the plug in one ear so I can always hear whats going on around me. On long trips, though, I need to have music going somewhere.

I agree with the one ear thing, still dangerous though but man it gets so boring esp on the highway without tunes... what about those of us that use ear plugs? i love the plugs but isn't that dangerous too?

Hey Endless, lemme copy somma dem tunes!

Try to avoid listening to tunes in & around cities or suburbs. Longer rides out of town and it makes the ride so much more enjoyable. Espcially long slab runs.

For me, heavier stuff foots the bill. Typically rock or metal.

This is beginning to sound like a Squid thread.

Do you actually have a stance on listening to music while riding or not?

I'm with arch on this one... it's not too late if you can hear it... I simply like to hear the ricer exhaust echoing for miles and knowing they're coming up behind me so I look and avoid stuff... then again, I've traveled for 35 miles at most on the highway so I wouldn't know about the really long trips...

thanks, have yet to even post the new stuff I recently found; I get my music depending on mood (i.e. lifting I'll go metal or insane...mudvayne, stone sour, etc whereas relaxing I'll throw in some dave, oar, pink floyd, jethro etc). I'm a fan of itunes' preview feature...then I'll torrent what I need

I listened to tunes on my 2 days of slab out to Colorado...variety of music on the MP3 player. In twisties, I don't need the distractions....I'll agree with Troy makes long slab bareable. On the way back, I didn't listen....I prefer the hum of the engine and the Remus pipes sounded great.

true, there are cool sounds but I am starting to get sick of wind howling and the outside noise even though my helmet does cut most of the stuff out....maybe I should just go faster!?
