    Depends on your world-view I suppose. I find very little in life that is not better with music than without. I can't even count the $ I spent trying to find a viable way to listen to music on a motorcycle. Much easier on a bike. In fact, for an old, marginally computer-illiterate guy like me, the very best thing about the digital revolution is the advent of the mp3 player. I've found that listening while riding (m/c or bicycle) forces me to be more attentive visually (had to buy a mirror for my bicycle helmet), but the joy the music brings makes it worthwhile.

    I think that I would definitely like to hear that car coming up behind me and move over instead of wondering if I hear a car and then fumbling to turn down the volume to check while I am being run over. Excluding Priuses of course.

    What a strange concept.....

    I guess it's a shame your life isn't as rich and full as it could be since you don't listen to music on your rides.

    Greg, when you no longer need to ask the question you'll have the right answer. Until then, don't ride with earphones.
