I think music is cool when you're riding solo on a run where it's just you and the mountain, and your beats. However, I don't agree with bubbling down unless you really know what you're doing. So many ppl get in the way, and they're wearing headphones so you can't even get their attention. That's dangerous and it pisses me off. What if you're about to get landed on, or there's a slide above you, and you can't hear people trying to warn you? I know, the chances are odd, but I'm just getting old I guess, and I see the dangers of it... I think it impairs your senses to a certain extent, and you need to consider that.
OMG! What an oldtimer post! Somebody get me some viagra!
