I’ve been riding many years. A lot recently, almost at 30K on my 17.5 GS. I’ve never really tried listening to music while riding, until recently. Loaded some mp3s on my nav vi and have new helmet bud ear plugs/phones. They are great. But, thats not the story. I find the music distracting. Now, riding down the interstate it might be ok. Today I was coming down NC 215 from the BRP. A road that requires attention. Having Mick in my ear wasnt working. Went into a turn a bit hot. No problem, but not typical for me. Im usually not surprised. I think I’ll stick to silence unless in a low stress situation. Maybe lower attention required situation might be a better descriptor.
