Lightbulb Music choice for adventure touring riding on Your V strom?

Hi all troopers,
I recently bought a Sena 30 K with really good quality , I myself am fan of Pink Floyd (dark side of moon), Dire strait( brothers in arms),
and U2 (California), I have some of these selections on Cell and they shuffle again and again .
I cannot describe feeling while riding in Canyons and desert while listening to these. I wanted to share this with you and know your recommendations for more type of music, I also enjoy Country music, from FM radio built in Sena.
Thank you for inputs
Ride safe.

i have the sound of the air whistling through my ears and some dang rounds I can't shut off. The Cutty Wren is one of the worst!
Dire Straits or anything by Mark Knopfler is an excellent choice!

I had an eclectic mix of golden oldies for short trips and back roads but did book recordings for really long interstate trips. Often, I just wanted to get to good but distant places before switching to music.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

Pretty much every single time I am on the bike I am listening to tunes and that covers around 20k/year.
I have a bluetooth headset, but prefer the in-ear monitors like my Shure E2's for better quality sound while blocking wind noise.

As for music selection - I doubt there's many on this forum that would listen to the same stuff as me.
I've been a DJ for about 25 years and so all my riding music are continuous mixed sets done by myself - several hundred hours of disco, funk, tribal, deep house, techno, jungle, downtempo and more! https://www.mixcloud.com/shanekingsley/

I always ride with music. Southern rock is a big part but there is an eclectic mix on my pod, traveling Wilberies, Andrea Bocelli, AC/DC, Joe Cocker, Boston, Celtic, Pink Floyd, Clapton, Simon Seger, Queen, Santana, Springsteen and a bunch more. If I don't have music I start singing and that, is terrifying.
