Thumbs up ear plugs = safety


My friends recommended them, so did all the books. So, after seven months riding, I finally used them this afternoon. I found some shotgun foam type plugs, and they fit well. I found riding to be less stressful. And, I was more focused and less fatigued despite some pretty high winds out here in Ft. Bend County. I have already lost a lot of hearing, so they make sense. Call me a doofus for not using them from the beginning.

Oh, and thanks for the wave from the nice sport bike rider, looked like a black/silver bike, and matching helmet (full safety gear!) going west on highway six near First Colony. I was going east on 6. I love it when riders wave back!

ear plugs don't necessarily mean safety. But your ears will thank you later.

I really enjoy earplugs. It's refreshing when I ride with music for a while and then switch to earplugs, makes for a much more pleasant ride. Either way, there is usually something in my ear to block as much db as possible but, I miss my noise canceling earbuds.
