I've been collecting here and there for over a decade. Ripped from CD's bought or borrowed mostly. A few through iTunes, Amazon and other similar.Wow, what did you use to get all the music?
You have a DVD player on your bike?! Well it's good you don't turn it on - it would be very dangerous watching movies while riding. 😉😆😜I rarely ever turn the radio or DVD player on. I just enjoy the silents except for the engine and the wind. Enough noise for me on TV ect. I do wear ear plugs also to protect hearing.
My choice, is as I refer to it is , no k-rapp. And no goat roping 😂😂I have a friend with an amazing music library so he loads up big SD cards with random tunes to plug into my 660. The only rules are no xmas music and no rap crap. I leave it on random on the bike and in my truck
I use a IPod Classic that has 18000 songs on it. I have every kind of music you can think of except Rap Crap!This post isn't intended to discuss or argue whether you should or should not listen to music while riding, but to ask what you listen to while riding for those that do? My music tastes vary to where I am riding. If I am on a straight highway, it's more upbeat, driving type of rock or country. If I am on rural straights, then something milder. If I am in twisties, then it'e something more energetic to get the blood flowing. I have found the following to be good candidates for the play list:
Plain White Ts - Their music is made for riding
Muse, fall out boy, especially in the twisties
Anything from Dean Martin to Beatles to queen to Dawes on the highway
I try to have a good mix and skip past the ones that don't work for me at any particular time
I have a Packtalk bold/JBL headset, which helps enjoy the music a little better.
Please no admonishments for listening while riding. I find that listening to music at a reasonable volume helps with concentration
So, any ideas about good music to ride by?
