I would like your opinion on listening to music while riding. Please base your opinion on a safety stand point. When I say listening to music I do not mean with ear buds or headphones. I am talking about external speakers. There are differant set ups available, from something like the Cycle Sound to home built units.
This is for all types of riding on roadways. Whether it is in an urban or country side setting.
What do you think, from a safety stand point? Good idea, or not? Do you think it is safer to not listen to music with external speakers, or does it make a differance? Do you think it is any differant from listening to music in a motor vehicle?
I am asking because I am considering listening to music when I ride, but want to get some opinions on it first.
