Okay road trip dudes.........

So what's everybody using for listening to some tunes or whatever, when you're on the long trips.

Thus far I have been using headsets (ear buds) connected to my phone.

Ideally, I think I would like some bluetooth solution - but that stuff seems expensive.

I also considered some amp/speaker setup for the bike but haven't looked much into it yet (other than reading some of the threads on this forum).

Usually use my ears

My exhaust is too loud to listen to music.

I only understand what I don't understand.

I tried ear buds and my ipod in my pocket but it's hard to adjust for the volume while riding, along with changing songs, so right now I don't use any.

I agree with that - was that way for me too.

I ended up getting a headset (hands free set) that has the inline mic that allows me to change volume and skip songs (forward or back). It's a little better
