i dont race on any track except drag racing...but judging from my inexperience with those types of tracks, i would go with no...music is too much of a distraction, especially if your flying around some turns extremely close to a bunch of other bikes...accident waiting to happen for some folks

Re: should headphones be allowed on the track?

nope. doesn't matter what a person says, it DOES take away a little of your attention, and when your safety and the safety of others around you are "in your hands" there's no room for error. a firm no... i actually don't think they should allowed while riding at all... just my opinion. need all the input you can to stay safe... INCLUDING your hearing.

Re: should headphones be allowed on the track?

HELL NO. Aside from the distraction factor, if you're riding close quarters with other bikes, engine noise a big part of knowing where the other bikes are in relation to you. I don't want to dice it up with someone who is handicapped from an awareness standpoint. I think it needs to be fineable if you're caught on the track with music, and ticketable on the street.

Re: should headphones be allowed on the track?

IMO its not really a distraction. Unless your JAMMING to it then yea it would be but if its faint but u can still hear it then sure. In my experience you normally forget about the music in the heat of the moment. For instance.. Your going down the street and u get the urge to pass someone because they are going hella slow... in the heat of passing them i usually forget the music is playing and am listening to my engine whine. :P Anyways unless you are the type of person that gets totally distracted by music i dont see a prob with it. Just my .02 cents. FYI: I always like to take the other side when one side is outnumbered

Re: should headphones be allowed on the track?

Music headphones, I say no. But earplugs I would say yes. I listen to music like on my morning commute to work. But on the way home I usually take the twisties, so no music. I did it once, and it really does pose a bit of a distraction.
