Just the engine

for me, too. I do miss my lovely Vance and HInes but the Striple can scream quite nicely if provoked.

Also I have't been able to get out of the habit of listening for engine trouble. Almost irrelevent nowadays but it used to be an important early warning system on the sort of bikes I could afford in my teens.

Ever so useful when you're not expecting the 140 mph overtake (was that you, weasel?) which always makes me jump, even when you see and hear it coming.

Never listened to music whilst riding..... I love the sound of the engine, the roar of air through the induction box.... And I always have an ear out for those sirens too !! Lol

fair point lads

i first used earphones to block out the stupid wind noise on the motorway. and since i'm doing a relatively sensible 80mph on the motorway i use music to stop me getting bored out of my skull.

though after these comments i feel i should ditch the earphones and invest in a better helmet

don't use them. Only time I used them I got over excitable and got pulled by the cops.

For a split second I did think "big estate Vs supermoto around some estates... hmm" and then of course pulled over.

It's actually "I never see the sudden curve 'till it's way too late"... 

Makes more sense... he goes flying off a great height, in my imagining of the tragedy.   Probably along the winding passes through the Colorado mountains, or up route-1 in California.   Saw many opportunities to do just that while cruising up and down there myself.

Edit note:  Agreed about not listening to music while riding!

Referred to this Meat Loaf situation as a 'tragedy', because 'tragedy' doesn't just mean something sad or unfortunate, it's an ancient Greek concept concerning a terrible thing that happened because of a flaw in the character of the individual concerned.

In Meat Loaf's BooH, it was his inability to stop thinking about his girl.   "But I can't stop thinking of you.  And I never see the sudden curve 'til it's way too late!"

Listening to music while riding?   Damn.  If you're getting bored while riding, you run a very serious risk of getting dead fast.  And that would be a real tragedy.
