Just a quick post to tell those that dont know, there is a product you can now get that completley solves the dreaded wind noise problem.
I took the risk (i was super skeptical) and paid big dollars to have some custom made silicon earplugs made and they are fan bloody tastic. I have tried so many different types of plugs and they dont stay in my weird ears and they dont do a great job of attenuating noise.
I got these things and opted to have speaker wires in them so i could listen to my ipod if needed. They pump beautiful, clear sound into my ears at almost any speed. Put it this way, i passed a truck on an outback highway at 140 klm and i didnt miss a word of the podcast i was listening to.
I dont want this to be an ad but these things have really answered my prayers.
I got "Earmold" brand which are custom fitted and they took half an hour to make on spot. I think there might be other brands but i suspect this is the only company that has the "sound going in " option.
I saw ad in Aus road rider magazine. They really arnt cheap but i consider it a great investment in serenity and less frazled nerves after a 6/7 hour day in the saddle.
I should ad that I definatley dont have anything to do with the company, I am just spreading the word to those who dont know.
Maybe i am the last to find out!
Regards to all, Simon.
