Since there is 15,347 members here, had me wondering if there any Deaf/hard of hearing riders here? I'm one of them.

Yes, I'm a machinist but didn't lose hearing from that, got sick when I was born with a high fever and lost all my hearing on my right ear. My left ear, I can hear some but better with hearing aid.

Would like to meet or know who. I know several deaf/hard of hearing riders but not very active riders as myself.

I too am a machinist and I spent over three years in a grind shop. I always wore earplugs but sometimes that wasn't even enough. It's good that you can at least hear some from one of your ears, motorcycles make some of the most beautiful sounds.

Enough to hear your engine, or you judge by tachometer and feel of the vibration?
