    This song always comes to me during my motorcycle adventures. It brings me great joy as I revel in the sights, smells and sounds of the world going by.

    A day of riding, a long, beautiful, empty stretch of new pavement - great twisties. I stop and take a picture of the bike in a beautiful meadow. Jump back on head out for more and the first song that pops up is:
    Ballad of Easy Rider

    Another good one:
    Woody Guthrie Motorcycle song

    My iphone has plenty of music and I play it often.

    But quiet helmet time can be precious too!

    My kids are in their thirty's now, but still remember when they were little we always started a road trip with Steve Miller 'Fly like am eagle'. Still a goto for me.
