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. 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
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.
