Music when riding.

Post by Zombie Master » Wed May 16, 2018 12:17 am

I don't often listen to music when I ride, but on a long day I will turn on the tunes. This song is from an album called Metheny/Mehldau. I've listen to this recording everywhere I have ridden. Listening to it takes me away, and back to those rides. Here is sample.

Nice. I've seen Pat Metheny in concert many times over the years here in Austin.

Sony noise cancelling MDR-NC22. Don't need to have them loud to hear the detail.

Thanks ZM. I recently bought some TaoTronics ANC Earphones TT-EP002.
I have nuthin' to compare them too, but I'm happy with them at $OZ70 ish. A bit bulky in the helmet unless they're just right.

When riding a Ducati no other music is needed or wanted. :mrgreen:

I thought that was for Moto Guzzis, or BMW's.

BMW and MG riders usually have their ear plugs screwed in so tight they can't hear anything. :)

Hey! My motor sounds so much more reliable with the earplugs in.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.
