Ear plugs

I haven't used them for years and then it was only to cut out the noise of the other builders snoring! Had to bunk down in a site caravan for weeks at a time.:upset:

  I feel that they might cut down your awareness on a bike even though the engine noise is sometimes a trifle irksome.:blink:

Ear plugs?

Yes, always. You can still hear. It just keeps the wind roar down.

Ear Plugs

Yep - use them for longer rides. 

Couldn't get on with disposable ones - kept falling out!!  So had some custom ones made.  Work really well - recommended.  Bit worried about hearing loss as I played in band, listened to a lot of loud music when I was a lad!!!

Have used them the last few years and don't like going on the bike without them now, although the fact that I have a noisy helmet (shoei x-spirit) and a noisy can on my Daytona 955i might have something to do with it.:lol:

I'm not saying you should wear them but it's your choice.


But as for someone who knows what it's like having hearing loss, prevention is better than cure.

When you start getting tinnitus (that ringing, hissing sound in your head that just doesn't go away) you might wish you had done something about it earlier.

Prevention is always better than cure.

Take care:smile

ear plugs yes or no........

many years ago when I was forced to work for a living I used earplugs when I had to go into a department with noisy machinery but just cant get on with them on a bike for some reason. I find they make me feel 'out of touch' with the bike and the road. Besides, why blot out the wonderful sound of a well set up engine and a set of loud pipes :smile and having started riding bikes in the time when we were not forced to wear helmets a bit of wind noise round my head doesn't bother me in the least.
