Do you wear ear plugs on trips? or R U jus to kool. I like them because it settles me out and I can think better with out all that damn wind noise and pay more attention to the dumb asses on Northern Cali freeways trying to kill me...oh yeah I put 16,170 on my 2005 beast last year, after all I do have a life and can't ride all the time….SO READ the attached zip file on ear protection if your so inclined and U want to keep your hearing as an old man

I remember reading something in one of the magazines years ago about how wearing ear plugs help to reduce fatigue while riding. Wife and I wear them all of the time when we ride. Now if I go for a short blast around the neighborhood without the earplugs in, I start to wonder what all of those sounds are coming from my bike! It's just because the engine noises are louder - obviously....

I have tried wearing earplugs and they do cut down the wind noise so you can hear the bike better. They hurt me ears though so i don't wear them. I guess i have small ear holes or something. When i'm shooting or running load equipment i will wear ear muffs though.
