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?

Yep, but not with the custom ones. Definitely want the customs, but haven't put the $$$$ into it yet. I'm used to using them at large/loud venues, and the bass transmission is far better than the treble. Bass and other low freq. oscillations also travel better through solids (heck, I think they travel better through everything), such as bone, etc.
