    I sing in my helmet, but usually only when I'm on vacation. Overall, less than I used to, maybe I need a new bike?

    I sing, though am thinking of getting tunes in some form. Last summer, somewhere in Iowa headed toward Indiana, the song "Indiana Wants Me" got stuck in my head. It stayed there all the way across Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and part of Pennsylvania. I simply could NOT get it out of my head!:huh

    I sing...and bob my head and occasionally slap my thigh with a hand in time to the music I'm listening to on the Ipod. I'm sure some people think I'm nuts but I could care less. Listen to all kinds of music...:D

    On long straight roads I sing. Mostly old folk songs I remember from the 60's.

    Sure, all the time. Helmet's kinda like singing in the shower, makes you sound better than you are. Old stuff mostly; Arlo Guthrie, John Denver, Eagles...good stuff:clap

    Yes, but oddly, its the same songs that got stuck in my head when I started riding more than 30 years ago with an open face helmet... Jackson Brown, John Prine and yes Arlo... changing helmets hasn't changed the tunes. Maybe my brain doesn't have any room left for new lyrics.

    Yes. I used to have a iPod shuffle to play music and I would occasionally sing along. Since the remote has stopped working I have do sing random songs or sometimes just certain choruses get stuck in my head. :norton

    never could enjoy the headphone thingy, so I make up dirty songs while riding. They start out bluesy, then turn to a rock and roll style. sometimes a little electronica.



    i hope no one ever hears me :lol3

    Yes, almost without exception. Elvis, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and various bluegrass.

    Unfortunately, I have forgotten that when I'm at a stoplight, the soccor mom with her minivan windows down, and all of her kids, can hear me through my helmet. :shog
