You might want to take a look at this thread. Some good suggestions here.

Not as often as I want to...usually remember when I'm on the freeway and curse myself!
I always carry them, though. So, I admit not often enough.

I wear headphones all day at work on my tractor,
Never really felt the need for them on my Vespa,
Either around town or on the highway.

The noise just isn't that loud to me, Even with a 3/4 on.

I could understand wearing them with a loud pipe or knobby tires,
But, I have neither, So why wear them, They just give me ear infections.

Now if there was a helmet with headphones...
