    the first 43 seconds of the video is what I like to hear.
    TT isle of Man racing is just amazing to watch sad part is 1 death a year sometimes its a rider some times it is a spectator

    I like to listen to my motor as I roll along never even considered listening to music

    Agree.....and as a rider, listening to your engine is some would day required, to catch mechanical emergencies before they happen!

    The ONLY time I used to listen was, in the late 90's as a bike courier, I 'made' myself a Walkman, using an old cassette player, some wired headphones.....this was PURELY to keep me awake on those long Winter night runs, where insomnia/hallucinations WOULD happen.......at the time , this seemed to do the trick nicely, being a change from my usual rock tracks

    Where do you start? Hey kerriskandiesinc, I was a bike courier down in the Smoke from mid 80's until about Y2K. I worked for Marathon, Delta, West1. West1 were my favourites once I got established.

    Sorry, not posting a youtube link, but some of my goto's are Dream Theater (prog metal), some classic Iron Maiden, occasionally Dead Kennedys.

    I play classical Piano. Chopin was a genius the great composers all were but the first time I heard Jordan Rudess I knew he was classically trained. My cousin told me he was Dream Theater's keyboard player and I started listening to them great musicians, great music. Missed the concert in Glasgow unfortunately. I liked Iron Maiden's track Brave New World which is about Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel by the same title. Dream Theater are one of the best prog metal bands I have ever heard. I am very enthusiastic about music.

    sorry guys, I should have been more precise, not looking for your favorite music whether you're biking or working in the garden,
    looking for songs specifically about riding. Here's one from Satch
