    Listening to music while riding....

    Just wondering if anyone does this, other than on a 'Wing. Either thru earphones or a headset or otherwise....

    Gets kinda boring during the commute, so wondering about the feasibility of this.. Haven't tried it yet..

    I use an Mp3 player velcored to the back underside of my helmet with the wires running into the helmet. I bought a low profile head set that fit into the lining of the helmet. Works wicked in the city and up to 190 km on the hwy.
    When speeding run from the cops, it's a lesser infraction.

    I won't mainly because in city traffic I find it a hazard.
    I like being able to hear everything around me and don't want to mask any noise.

    Your hearing will not last long.
    Ever wonder why so many of the older riders are always yelling?

    I always listen to music. I find it very boring otherwise. I have a JR tankbag with my discman under the map flap. I don't however turn it too loud so I can still hear traffic and whatever. I think it's illegal though.

    I've done it once or twice when out in the rural areas but couldn't get used to it. The buds crushed my ear when I put my helmet on and then become loose after a period of time. I may try it again on some of the longer rides this summer though.

    In the city though, I feel more comfortable being able to hear whats going on around me.
    Ride in peace my friends...

    Being a road crayon sucks....put your gear between you and the pavement.

    Never, it's already difficult being seen and heard by cagers, i am not gonna lower my chances of survival for the shear pleasure of listening to music.

    Besides, air druming and riding don't go hand in hand!
