I'm with 954's ancient post here. Since I wear earplugs to save my hearing I couldn't wear MP3 player earphones anyway. And hearing the bike makes it easy to know what gear she's in and when a shift change is coming up.

never ever listen to music with earphones on . Coz you won't be hearin any horn , if somebody is blowin it behind you . But you can listen to you music in your car , at medium volume .

As a BRAND NEW RIDER...I really DO try to ride Safe and responsible when I'm out there so I've elected NOT to just for that reason. Plus, I would imagine my music would sound so INCREDIBLY LOUD every time I came to a stop sign or stop light to compensate over the engine noise of my 750. Furthermore...I kinda like the way my bike sounds when I take off from a stop sign/stop light. The sound of it revving and whatnot. No need for music for me while riding but that's just me.
