I just have a semi-cheap MP3 player with 256MB. No need for expensive iPods, MP3 players cost from around 50$ here. 256MB is enough for 50-60 songs at good quality and adding and removing songs is just a matter of plugging it into a USB port, Windows treats it like any removable drive. And Windows Media Player or Real Player can convert CDs to MP3 easily.

It has an FM radio too. I got a set of aftermarket earphones for it that double as ear plugs - they have soft silicone buds that go all the way in your ear.

Just pick one up at any radio store. Standard 3.5mm headphone jacks on next to all MP3 players - even the iPods

Depends on where you ride and how much traffic there is. I don't use the MP3 player if I ride in urban areas (which isn't very often) but as soon as you get up in speed, say 40-50 mph, you can't hear shit anyway... But wait until you gain some more experience, don't need more things to distract you.

...and BTW, I fo feel a little offended here...
I've ridden some 3 times as long as you and have both a 600 and a 650... You're using engine size as a gauge to how long people have ridden?
