Ear protection

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just bought a Harley, and the noise of the bike isn't the major issue, it's the noise of the wind even at normal speeds.  I used to wear a full-faced helmet years ago, so wasn't as much of an issue.  I used regular ear plugs today, which was great, but I want something a little more secure and reusable.  Any suggestions?  I know the union sponsors ear molds once in a while, but I want to be able to hear somewhat too for safety.

Thanks,

Robert Sharman

I have a set of the style 49 plugs.  They're very comfortable and have changeable attenuation filters.

They do a great job of reducing level while maintaining intelligibility.
