Wear ear protection

Postby redburd1998 » March 27th, 2008, 9:16 pm

Well Guys and Dolls

Hearing in my right ear is half of what my left is.... Wife thinks its selective but unfortunately not. Between shooting rifles and shotguns and my LOUD pipes, loss of hearing is happening. Please be smart and wear hearing protection. Once its gone, your screwed.....

Ride safe friends

My hearing is going bye bye too, especially now since I have 4 speakers on the scooter and an Ipod hooked up.
I try to keep a bag of plugs on the bike cause if they lose their form it's worse then not having any. Some buddies of mine have the molded plugs, they say they're much better but take a little extra time to put in.

I always wear plugs, even with a full-face helmet on.

PLease dont post any personal protective equipment things on here just incase the government is monitoring this site.......we already have to wear seat belts and most of us helmets with no choice in the matter....next we will have to wear ear plugs and safety glasses and steel toe boots or get a ticket!!

... now that is just a dang-funny pic ...

... yeah ... my hearing ain't what it used to be either ... same reasons (guns, music, loud pipes) ... try some Sure E2c (I think that's right) noise reducing earphones with your devices (yeah ... I know that's illegal too) ... really cuts back on all the wind noise and mufflers so you don't have to crank the tunes up to high to drown them out either ... work great ... these are the older version of what the professional musicians wear on stage and in studios (instead of a monitor pointing back at them) so they can hear themselves and barely anyone else ... now I wear them with or without the tunes cranking ... ebay's got them all the time ... price has come down on them over the years, though I am still using the ones I got back in 2004/05 (somewhere in there) ...

I have tinnitus so bad that if my ears do stop ringing I think somethings wrong. :o
