Thanks, guys! I searched the thread and found most of what I'm looking for...

When I rode the other day I got some in-ear buds and tried not to turn the music too loud. I didn't hear the music very well due to exhaust and wind noise most of the time. I didn't want to turn it up higher since I have tinnitus already and don't need loss of hearing. At low speeds or standstill, I could hear it comfortably enough while still hearing ambient noises.

Not sure if I will continue to listen to music on occasion.

Some earphones work better than others, due to design. My primary requirement is that it acts as a noise-reduction device first, which means it "plugs" into the ear and deadens the sound from my exhaust as well as the wind.

I actually have a nicer pair of Bose earbuds at my desk, but I don't use them for motorcycling because they are designed more to sit on the outside of the ear and wrap around the earlobe. When I tried to ride with them, I ran into the same issue as you.

Maks, I truly hope you've learned you lesson and will ride in gear from now on.

On a brighter note, after a long debate with myself I've decided to fix the bike... I <3 eBay... rather than paying 2.6K+ for new OEM parts.. I just bought everything I need and didnt even break the 550 mark.

Although I still need to buy new tires and another shoei.

I'll be sure to post pics of the progress once I begin.

New fuses?

Did you crack your headlight or anything? Maybe you can turn it into an upright naked bike?

When i was riding i let the battery die, and then jumped it at home (my fault on battery. Somehow burned out fuse on the spedo/tach. Used one of the replacement fuses on the bike, but for 5 bucks figured i would just get a box of them to have

Cause DPD sucks dick. By the time he showed up i was tied down in the ambulance. More so, he wouldnt leave it, or tow it to my house.

bingo. I love the break down.

$120 for tow (reasonable)
$20/day storage (not unreasonable)
$20 processing fee (whatever)
$50 notification fee - This is a letter (that i STILL havnt gotten - that informs me they have my bike. The lady proudly told me it is COMPLETELY COMPUTER GENERATED!)

that last part pissed me off. 120+(5x20)+20+50+tax=$301.10 - completely wasted.
