I know I'm not the only one.

Been thinking about this for a while. I bet I'm not the only person who puts their iPod in while riding, so whats on your 'bike' playlist. Top 10 songs. Here's mine.

1.) Teardrop - Massive Attack
2.) End Credits - Star Trek: First Contact
3.) Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
4.) The World is Not Enough - Garbage
5.) You Know my Name - Chris Cornell
6.) Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
7.) Rock Lobster - B-52's
8.) The Impossible Dream - Andy Williams
9.) Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf
10.) "Metal Gear Solid" Main Theme (MGS3 Version) - Harry Gregson-Williams

Okay all, post up. I need new songs.

I ride with my ipod fairly religiously, I need the stimulation apparently...it focuses my concentration and yet drowns out my mundane life and makes me think about better things... I also have pretty eclectic music tastes.

I currently have over 31,000 songs on my ipod...it says it can play for 482 days straight...

My favorite playlist has about 200 of my favorite songs on it, and I put em on random shuffle...that being said, some of my most favorites are:

Rob Zombie : Living Dead Girl, Demon Speeding, Never gonna stop me, and superbeast

Manowar: The Fight for Freedom, Warriors of the World United

Warren Zevon: Looking for the next best thing, Roland the headless thompson gunner

War Babies: Death Valley of Love

Van Halen: Hot for teacher, Dance the night away

Thomas Dolby: She Blinded Me with Science

Team America: Fuck Yeah!

Eddie Grant: Electric Avenue

Scandal: Goodbye to you

Sammy Hagar: I can't drive 55, Heavy Metal

Led Zep: Immigrant Song


Other artists on the list: 38 Special, Young MC, Yes, Wild Cherry, Wall of Voodoo, Van Morrison, Harry Belafonte, Tom Petty, Talking Heads, Steve Miller, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Ozzy, the Offspring, Ministry, Metallica, Jimmy Buffett, Jeff Healey, Gorillaz, Gerry Rafferty, Gordon Lightfoot, Cruxshadows, Chris LeDoux, Bee Gees, Bob Dylan, Black eyed peas, AC/DC, and several others...


Cheers!

I was thinking the same thing. In addition the feeling disconnected from the bike, it just seems like an unneeded distraction. It might be ok on a long highway cruise or something, but I never ride in that kind of situation.

I have a hard time with 'in the ear' headphones, one ear they barely fit the other ear it falls out...so I've never ridden with more than the tunes in my head...which is plentiful

Dream Theatre, AC/DC, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modest Mouse, Muse...at least that's what I listened to on the way into work this morning.

I've just started listening to music while riding and find that it definitely enhances the ride.

That is strictly your opinion, Tadashi. Mine is that it doesn't detract from my attention to what's going on whatsoever...kinda like how it doesn't affect my cage driving when I listen to the radio. I find it actually helps me focus on the important stuff better.

I used to use the ear buds under the helmet, and that was not very comfortable. Then I got my Scala rider setup, and I plug the ipod into that. The sound quality isn't as good, though. I also bought an extension cord so that there is a quick disconnect at my helmet and at my tankbag so that I don't accidentally yank my own leash when I get off. I leave the cord attached to my riding jacket. it's a good thing to get! Maybe we should bug some earphone manufacturers to make some nice super-good quality flat speakers that fit inside a helmet like the ones I have now, but better! somebody probably already makes something like this, but I haven't found it yet.

Team America made me LOL.

Don't have an i-pod. But if I did it would be full of Classical probably. Some common stuff like Beethovens fifth, Vivaldis seasons etc. but the top of the list would be the 1812 Overature. Tchaikovsky.

It was a good show, Korn was the headliner and they were really good too. Here's a few Zombie clips I took.

I never listen to music while riding. I enjoy the symphony of the mechanical sounds the bike makes. By the time I get my boots, riding pants, jacket, full-face helmet and gloves on I'm already feeling disconnected enough. I save the music for the car.

But that's my $0.02

I've never tried listening to an ipod while riding but am pretty sure it is not legal here. I know you can't wear ear buds in a car. That said, I noticed while following one of my sons on our last two day ride, he took curves more confidently when he did not have them in.

I have a hard time remembering to put in ear plugs for longer pleasure rides

(there's also the fact that I don't even own an mp3 player... that kinda limits my options in a hurry)

According to THIS it's perfectly legal in OK, which is good considering I wore them the whole time I was up there last month for my birthday.

I keep my mp3's on random but lately my big focus has been mostly on Five Finger Death Punch. Probably not the best music for me to listen to if I want to keep my speed down though.

2003 Honda 919 - flapper mod, Clear Alternatives Smoke Tailight w/ integral turn signals, Stebel Nautilus air horn, DIY fender eliminator, LED license plate bolts, LED front turn signals, no resistor or new flasher so I blink like crazy.

I use a high quality set of sound canceling ear buds for riding. (get's pricey since the kitten thinks they are toys.) I always at least have ear plugs in @ 25 I have lost more hearing than most do to my hobbies and work enviroments I do not plan to loose any more of it. T

hat being said I hate ear plugs I very soon after putting them in start to loose equilibrium and feel queezy would be the best word for it I have very open ear canals so they have an effect on me. Sound cancelling devices normally have some sort of inlet and out let and use the frequencies to elemenate noices Basically a sound coming in from the out side is met by a lesser, equal, or greater sound of the same frequncy which cancels it out. so I don't have to have the music very loud to bring the DBs into my ears to a safe level.

I can tell you even with a full helmet in the sound levels are damaging to your ears trust me I know from experience. For those that feel Head phones are a no go I would suggest at least ear plugs. They make plugs that don't effect me much but they don't fit well under a helmet and I do like some sort of music I also have a tuner on my MP3 player some times I listen to local shows and what not We have a couple good stations around here.

As for my play list
It's a mix of contemporary christian music, christian rock, country (from Hank sr. and waylon to eric church and randy houser)and blue grass with a rock song or two stuck in.

Any one notice New country is really just pop and pop rock with a little fake twang? Not that I don;t like It just don;t call it country call it what it is POP.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Side note: I am so pissed off that the twits at Napster don't have my beloved AC-DC. I signed up for a year before finding out that they don't have an agreement with the band. For this, you Napster may bite my pee stream.
