Guess I am the odd ball on the tunes. My helmet has pockets in the ear pads and I have ear buds in them. I don’t always listen to music but theres times where I prefer them. I don’t find the music as a distraction at all as it does nothing to break my attention. At minimal it may get me into a good rhythm while I am cruising the back roads.
Other then that…. I actually show up to work in a bad mood if I have to take the cage. Riding is my time, quiet or not and I enjoy it thoroughly!
