Today was another nice spring day, so I decided to go for a ride. This time I remembered to try my new Surefire EP4 Sonic Defender ear plugs.
They were easy to install, comfortable, did not pop out, and best of all they worked! The picture shows the little white plugs not inserted, but I chose to plug them in. I did not use the lanyard as these would be under my helmet.
My California Scientific windscreen keeps my jacket bug free and out of the windblast. My Shoei RF1200 helmet is in clean air with no buffeting. But it was subjected to wind noise. These ear plugs eliminate almost all of it, and make riding much more enjoyable.
With my windshield, Shoei helmet and these ear plugs; I finally resolved my problem with wind noise.
UPDATE: I do not like full face helmets as I am somewhat claustrophobic. So I tried my Bell MAG-9 open face helmet using my new ear plugs. Although not as quiet as my Shoei RF-1200, the ear plugs made the ride comfortable. Now I can take advantage of the large flip up visor, flip down sun visor, and enjoy a wider field of vision and fresh air.
This is motorcycling as I remember it! :grin:
