So I decided that I wanted to protect what is left of my hearing and had custom molded earplugs made this past weekend. Yesterday was the first day I used them. I spent the first 10 minutes of my ride trying to figure out which car was pumping way too much bass. Then, I stood up on my pegs to see through an intersection and the noise stopped. That was when I realized that the annoying bass noise was indeed the low vibrations of my own motorcycle. I rode about 30 more miles with them in, and never got quite used to it.

Anyone else had similar experiences with plugs?
