I have been wearing ear plugs for years (due to work) They are real big on safety, the point is we have all kinds of ear protection @ work, the best ones for sound, protection, & comfort are called "Spark Plugs" foam type, psycodelic in color.

They are more cone shaped & much softer than the yellow hard foam E.A.R. plugs.

Remember, with any foam roll up ear plugs is to make sure they are clean & you pull the top of your ear up with your opposite hand, then insert the ear plug. This gets the ear canal straight & you will get the best fit, let them expand in your ear then release your ear, plus they will stay in much better.


Bottom line...use some sort of ear protection!

Also after the long ride I didn't get that over pressure sensation I usually feel in my ears. I'm never riding without earplugs again ... there's just no reason to not to.
hey man im not being a smartass but what did u mean by "you were less fatigued??" i know what fatigued means but how does ear plugs help that ?? thanks

You concentrate more than you know on "blocking out" loud noises.

Just wait until you try them out on the track, Thomas. You'll notice a huge difference.

several of my friends make fun of me for wearing em, call me an "old man"... my dad has partial hearing loss in his left ear from driving a truck with the window down for several years..... i wear em. they make a difference and its just stupid not to protect your hearing...
