I can "listen" to music and not be distracted but I've kept background music going for over 30 years so I don't get fixated on what I'm hearing. I don't normally listen to music on the bike when I'm in heavy traffic though, just in case.How do you guys listen while riding? It's one more distraction you don't really need when riding on the street. Besides, you'd have to be listening quite loud to actually hear the music over the engine, exhaust, wind, etc.
i make the mistake of putting pantera on and i do some dumb things while out riding, lol.i cant listen and ride. makes me to aggressive i used to do it on my dual sport and found my self locking up the rear a lot.
