Didn't expect all the feedback and questions.

I didn't realize I'd get asked so many questions and recieve so much feedback on my previous posts but its great!

Anyway, I'm still working on the write-up for the future of add-ons to the Hayabusa. However, just a quick response to a question by at few different people that messaged me.

I've been asked about the Sony earbuds I use with my IPOD when on the highway with the bike.

I used to use KOSS "The Plug" head phones. I used them for close to three years and they did their job well. However, a few months ago I purchased the Sony Fontopia earbuds. Part number MDR-EX51LP. They cost $20.00 more than the KOSS plugs but the difference is night and day. They seal better and the sound quality is fantastic.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money the KOSS plugs are not a bad choice. However, if you really enjoy your music as I do then do yourself a favor and purchase the Sony plugs. I thought about trying the noise cancelling but didn't want to spring for the cash. Perhaps in the future I'll move to those.

Thanks Chris,
Those are the same ones I picked up for my iPOD mini just yesterday. They also offer the MDR-EX71LP for about $10 more ($49 at Best Buy) but the only difference I could see is a case and an extension cable (I think). Speaker specs were identical to the 51s. I am quite pleased with the sound quality and plus they actually stay in my ears when I put on and pull off the helmet.
