Default Riding Tunes

What is your go to music when riding?

All around me everyday I hear the usual classic rock from other riders. Personally I use a Pandora station I put together that has everything I like.
I've gotten a couple funny lucks from passersby when it switches from Aerosmith to Eminem. Funniest lucks are when Rancid or Bad Religion are playing though.

I like listening to nature and the sounds of the road.
Wind, waterfalls and especially thunderstorms... it really relaxes me and I feel at peace.
I have had my Cross Country Tour for 4 years and have never had the stereo on.

I used to listen to tunes all the time, but then I decided to concentrate and start focusing more on my riding.

My stereo is two chrome pipes sticking out from under the side cases. They make music that's more beautiful to me than any radio device can produce. When I'm on my bike, I'm on an adventure and want to experience all the excitement that adventure has to offer me. When I'm in my car, I'm just going somewhere and a radio device helps to break the boredom. I know this is not the answer you wanted, but then I guess I'm not your typical cruiser rider. Don't stop at bars either, not until the side stand is down for the night anyway.

A radio is the last thing I want when riding a motorcycle. I never understood why one would want to listen to a radio on a 2 wheeled machine but to each their own. I don't even believe in the the BT phone set up crap, I get on my motorcycle to get away, not keep up with everybody.

Well it depends on where, and how I'm riding. Easing down the road I'll have some Volbeat or Stonesour. Maybe some Motorhead. If I'm putting her through her paces, PM5K, Rob zombie, Coal chamber, and anything else that sounds like I may be on my way to murder a small family.

There is certainly a time for just chilling without all the distraction of music. For the life of me I cant understand why some people put mega watt sounds systems on your bike. WTF for ? hell i was behind some guy that had his music on so loud that if an Apache Helicopter came up behind him he wouldn't know it!

I do listen to my IPOD and the music depends on my mood. Beach Boys are good.. then i can go all the way to ZZ TOP , even Van Halen.

A little off subject, but if I were to listen to music, this is a perfect match, I think. Not the greatest video, but I've been there and it's beautiful riding country. Enjoy the music unless you want to murder a small family.

I don't understand the guy that sits in the middle of a dozen bikers visiting and planning what's next that has to have his radio on loud. He never leaves his bike and were yelling at each other so the others can hear what you're saying. I Mean come on go away
