Second set of Miscellaneous Extra's - Music on the move
Sometimes I want to listen to the Radio on the
move so I use a Sony Radio SRF-M37L. The
Sony is surprisingly water resistant. Battery life
is an amazing 20 hours from one AAA battery.
To my knowledge no one supplies an RDS
equipped radio suitable for a bike except Honda
who have a part for the Pan European at £500+.
I attach the little Sony to the fuel cap with Velcro
and tune in the main BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2
presets (In the UK every 30 miles the channel
frequency changes on FM)
When riding my bikes I like to listen to music, same as when driving a car. I find that it helps me concentrate. I
usually play MP3's through my Satnav.
Listening to music on the move is becoming a
problem because most SatNavs do not have a
facility to play MP3's. I used this solution for a
few trips before bluetooth was an option.
This Rockstar connector allows you to listen
to up to 3 sound sources at the same time
with up to 3 sets of headphones listening in.
So you can connect a SatNav and an MP3
player and listen to both. Not as good as a
SatNav that plays MP3's but a viable
alternative. Would be well suited to anyone
who carries a pillion. Not perfect but cheap.
I purchased a couple of
Dry Bag's from Amazon.
They are great for
ensuring that Cameras,
MP3's etc stay dry on a
long trip. This particular
dry bag has a 3.5mm
headphone jack lead
built inside with a 3.5mm
socket on the outside.
Audi Technica Noise cancelling headphones
are just amazing. These ANC23 units are
priced around £50. A stunning headphone in
it's own right, they really do reduce
background noise when used on a bike, in a
plane or on a train. Now replaced by ANC33
When on a long tour I need to keep
my Galaxy Phone, MP3, Tablet and
Satnav charged without having to rely
on mains electricity. So I use a
Technet Dual Port EP380 5000ma
battery extender. I can charge it while
I ride from a mini USB lead. Off the
bike over night It will recharge 2
devices simultaneously. It has
enough juice to recharge my Galaxy
phone twice from flat.
