Wind in ears..

What do you do to deal with wind rushing in your ears. Ear plugs and low tones of V-twins don't mix. Hell even full face helmets just cause droning noise inside them. Nothing like that late night ringing in the ears after a ride... Windshields, deflectors, lowers, etc. etc.. I've been using a bandana over the ears to break up the direct wind in the ears. There has got to be a better way to deal with that wind noise that is just ruining the ol ear pieces...

A proper windshield is the place to start. I run a Freedom on my 15 Rushmore. No wind noise at all with a half helmet and no earplugs. No buffeting either.

I tried that, I put a screen so big on it, it was just under my nose bridge, same problem... fork deflectors helped a little but man, I'm gettinging beat to death...

Backroading it dosn't seem to bother me. If I am going to be on the super slab for a while I sometimes put in the foam roll up ear plugs. Amazing how well I can still here with them in.

Try the silicon swimmers earplugs that you roll into a ball and put in the outer part of the ear instead of in the ear like foam plugs.

What do you mean by ear plugs and the low rumble of the bike don't mix?

There isn't a better plug then the silicone ear plugs.

There literally just a dab of silicone.

You push it in your ear and it completely conforms to the inner ear.

When I surfed during the winter months in Cali, I wore them every time to perfect my already f-cked up ears.

I don't wear plugs and yeah my hearing sucks.

I hate anything in my ears while riding.

For you, the silicone will be your best option other then a car, lol.

Hope you figure it brother.

Wind in ears..

I have a pair of custom molded ear plugs that I bought at a bike show. I wear them when I'm on the super slab. They really help
