I love me some music, but just curious what you guys think about listening to music and riding. Is it too hazardous?

I have a blue tooth headset in my helmet. I have my navigation, phone, and music all connected. I have driven thousands of miles while listening to music. As long as it is not so loud that you can't hear outside traffic you will be fine. I know lots of people who do it.

Thanks, sounds good. Is that left and right speakers? Are there good helmets with stuff like that built in?

I have tried it a couple of ways, radio on bike (Goldwing) and headphones. Basically IMO music on a bike is a PITA. Not worth it to me. Too loud when I am stopped, too low when I am moving, wrong song, too much static etc....

I just enjoy the ride.

I've headphoned for long rides but only one for safety but after an hour or so it starts hurting my ear being smashed in the helmet and having it turned up so loud to hear

Also here in FL you aren't allowed to have anything touching your ears so the only thing legal are speakers in your helmet or on the bike, not really worth getting a ticket over IMO

On real long rides away from traffic, I don't see anything wrong with it, so long as the volume is kept low. For my purposes, I don't generally do it. Too many cues you could miss. The Bike might be trying to tell you something, etc.

I have some bose headphones that I use daily when I ride. They don't sit in the ear canal like some earphomes do so they let me hear stuff going on around me.
