So, there hasn't been a thread on this for a while and there is probably a bunch of newer members here who didn't get a chance to contribute to the last thread (in 2005/6?). I've recently started listening to music while riding and am absolutely loving it. I was originally one of these people who'd harp on about how you're losing one of your senses and how dangerous it must be. The word to note there is how dangerous it MUST be, cause I'd say most who have that opinion probably have never tried it before. I tried it, and love it. I find I can still hear my engine note fine. I've never relied on hearing vehicles approaching and always thought that you should be seeing something long before you hear it when it comes to cars. I'll hear the odd Harley rumbling from way back on occasion though. I find that I'm actually more switched on visually, have less fatigue (mind you I've only just started doing this) and have more fun. But.......that really isn't what this thread is about I want to know what sort of music you guys listen to while riding. Any particular genres or artists? Last night I made up a hip hop playlist to end all hip hop playlists of which I listened to on the way to work. Had a little chuckle as the traffic started to get nasty and 1,2,3 comes on from Naughty by Nature....then a raft of Biggie Smalls songs about murdering people....... Yesterday I realized I shouldn't be riding a motorcycle when 'You could be mine' came on by the Gunners. I can see some Double J digital radio on my horizon too.
