In the back of this months BMW owners group magazine they had a few pages dedicated to songs about motorcycles and motorcycling from all genres and styles. I knew some of them, but several I didn't, so since had a couple day trip riding the Smokys a few weekends ago, I downloaded a bunch and made a playlist. When I decided to listen to music through the Sena I played this group and since I've been back I think of that trip hearing that music, kind of cool because it was a father and son trip.

Some of it is corny, I get it, and others may not be your thing, but still kind of cool riding stuff to listen too.

Here are some of them, in no real order, but these are all songs directly about motorcycling or have a motorcycle in them. I have a bunch of stuff in the past that are cool songs about traveling, but these are directly tied to motorcycles. All are available on iTunes, but does anyone have any others? I'd love to expand the list, I had a few they didn't have.

Little Honda - Hondells
I Want to Ride - Randy and the Retreads
1952 Vincent Black Lightening - Richard Thompson
War of the Superbikes - The Meatmen
The Ballad of Easy Rider - The Byrds
Motorcycle Mama - Sailcat
Ride - Joe Satriani
Roll Me Away - Bob Seger
Motorcycle Man - Saxon
Motorcycle - Kip Moore
Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi
Ride the Wind - Poison

These don't explicitly say motorcycle in them, but are motorcycle related that I added to my playlist:

- Closer to the Truth and Further from the Sky - Butch Walker. Butch is an avid motorcycle rider and collector, this song was written during a tour when he trailered bike and rode instead of bussed between cities on tour, something he does often. He's one of the most popular producers in music the past 15 years, if it's a catchy pop/rock song that gets stuck in your head, he probably wrote, produced or engineered it.

- Clockwork Angels - Rush. Chief songwriter for Rush, Neil Peart, is also an avid rider who travels the world on his BMWs and trailers bikes when they tour. He has some great books about his rides.

- Long Way Round - Stereophonics. Theme song for the Ewan McGreagor and Charley Boorman travel adventure documentaries of the same name.

That's what I got, any others come to mind?

Made me think of this.



Maybe you have to be a 2-stroke guy to really appreciate it?
