    Music sounds like crap in my helmet, so I try to remember songs and whistle sing or hum them while riding. For this trip I am working on the Whistling part from Gun's and Roses - Patience

    Humming sounds neat in a helmet, with some work I can get multiple tones out at the same time. I wish I could record it somehow, but I suspect some of it is in my head. ;)

    Depends on the mood. Behind on time with 100 miles left to go Metallica`s And justice for all album. Lazy day with nowhere to be my own mix of the RHCP Ride my Zephyr and Venice queen top that list. My Goldwing is a perfect platform for listening to music and cruising

    I am completely satisfied with nothing except the wind and my pipes. Today's music sucks, plain and simple. Yes, you guessed it I am old, 72 yrs old, my songs are 50's and 60's where you can actually hear the lyrics, no screaming and never the F word.
    Still tho, quiet is my way to go. Even in my truck, the radio stays off. Just me, I was born weird.

    I can totally respect that feeling.
    And in honor of a simpler time, cleaner music, and classier dames......
    May I suggest some Booker T & the MG's.

    I listen to Workingman's Dead and American Beauty a lot. Partly because my voice recognition commands recognize those unambiguously. But I'd listen to them anyway

    Didn't read the whole thread but I like to think of lyrics and hum, sing them in my head, one of the best I think is Drinkin and Dreaming by Waylon

    Of course, "Ride Me High" by Widespread Panic is a solid back-up

    Back in the '70's at Uni (in Ontario) we had a group of guys in res, only one of which had a car. Every so often we would pile into his malibu and head to a bar, he'd put "going mobile' in the 8-track and off we'd go! Great times that often took days to recover! Good thing I didn't have a bike bike then, I wasn't responsible enough. To this day I still put Going Mobile on when heading off on a trip. My kids don't get it.
