Helmet spaeker and Ipod ?

Not sure if this should be posted here or else where but here goes.. lookn at gettn the Ipod classic for when I ride. Couple questions.

Do they make a water proof model/case for when i ride in the rain?

Where can i buy helmet pads with built in speakers in the pad for a Joe Rocket Science helmet?

Add a chatter box. You can add more than things than just an Ipod.

Yea, I was wondering all of this too. Since the chatterbox is like about $200 and all. Not only that, but I was also wondering if there was anything cheaper, like a generic helmet headphone thing that would maybe work, seeing as how I'm really only going to use it for music. Bluetooth is always a plus.

If you get the bluetooth version of chatterbox, then you can not only use it for your iPod or satellite radio, you can use them with bluetooth phones.

But, I personally suggest that you don't wear one so that you can devote all of your attention to making sure that you make it to your destination. Also, in many states, wearing devices that are piping in constant sound like that are illegal.

Bikes: '88 EX250 (sold), '86 Nighthawk S (sold), '03 ZX7R (R.I.P.s), '07 ZX10R (sold)

I don't like repeat offenders; I like dead offenders.
My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!

while I'll be the first to admit that I wear an iPod while I'l riding...a lot...the last fuggin thing I want to do when I'm on my bike is talk on the phone...time with a helmet on is my time...know what I mean?

as for controls if you don't want to invest in a bunch of high end equipment, you can get one of these...good for any outdoor use...

Damn, Ya'll should hear a remix I did of "In The End" I'll PM the link to anyone who wants to hear it.


But I'll admit too that I listen to some kind of music when I ride. On occasion I'll listen on short rides in town and what not, but I mostly listen to it on longer rides to another town or just cruisin around ya know? That way I don't get so bored. I mean, I have a class thats in the next town about 30mi away, and those straights aren't doing me any justice just going in a straight line. I'd rather be hittin up those twisties 30mi in the opposite direction. So I listen to something to keep me preoccupied. Only problem, is that when I take off for the town, I'll start off good, but about halfway there or so, my earbuds just fall out and I get pissed. Sometimes I'd have to stop on the side of the road just to put them back in, thus, making me late.
