Found the thread by googling "best motorcycle earplugs" and have ordered myself a pair to try out.

I'm really stoked--I've never had good luck with any kind of earplugs, from several shapes of foamies to the corded silicone plugs. They always always always fall out of my left ear. By the description these seem like they might be better, so here's hoping! If these work as well as everyone says, I'll be sure to spread the word :)

FWIW... I've been riding with these ear plugs for about 4 years now and for me they are soooo much more comfortable than any foam plug I've tried.

two thumbs up for me

I got mine in the mail a couple of days ago and will try them.

Any special tips for putting them on or removing them besides the instructions posted on the website and in the instruction manual?

My ears have a reputation of expelling all foreign objects. I have a hard time finding a headphone that stays in place on its own.

Another question I have, is the putty supposed to cover just the opening or should it go in the ear canal and the rest should expand in the ear opening?

Soften them good by working them with your fingers, roll into ball and slowly press into ear. They don't expand and I find they stay in real well. FWIW, I have a fat head and big ears and I make 3 from 2 plugs. I find one for each ear, way too much.

I personally can seat them well, by first using finger pressure than folding the Tragus (that flap in front of the ear canal) back to push it in well. On the occasion they do come loose when riding, I can reach in the helmet and push on the tragus to re-seat them on the fly.
