Are your ears hurting like there is a ringing in it or is it like they are sore? Maybe you have a helmet that is the incorrect size or maybe it is a helmet that is not correct for the size and shape of your head. Earplugs should drastically reduce noise from entering causing pain from ringing, etc. Try a different helmet, if it still persists, I would do like a poster said before, and see a doctor and make sure there is no long lasting damage....

Don't get a honda, unless you want a nicer bike than all suzuki and kawasaki riders have.... hahaha... (nothing wrong with Honda)...

Try yawning.
Seriously I've experienced what you are talkin about and it seems like if you yawn or move you jaw a certain way it gets better. I know it's kinda weird but it works for me.
I don't think it's the wind, it seems to more like it is from neck muscles being held under tension too long. Just gotta ride more and they will get used to the strain...

Is the pain actually in your ear or is it the cartilage around your ear where the helmet is pressing against it? Try sitting around the house for an hour w/the helmet on & see if you get the same pain. If you do then it's the lid and not the noise get a new lid....if you don't then try different/better earplugs that actually block out the wind...if that doesn't help go to the Dr

Any movement in the helmet around your head will cause the helmet to pound your ears side to side.

This may not seem significant but that little bit of air in the cushions pushing in/out of your ear for an extended period can cause problems.

too big? stuff a sock in the opposite side and try riding again.

I know you're in the NE but go see Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and they will measure your head and give advice for the brand of helmet that would fit you best for your shape of head.
