Same here. It sucks.
Years of a pressure-washing job during college,,
before I knew any better (or my boss knowing/caring about OSHA).

I always wear earplugs when riding now.

Back in my early working life the only people who had hearing protection supplied by the employer were those that worked at the airport around jets on the tarmac all day.

I've paid the price with my hearing.
Now I wear 33db ear plugs whenever I ride as well.

I am also of the understanding that the experts are saying that even 33db ear plugs aren't really enough.
They say that one should also wear proper hard ear muffs as well due to lower frequency pressure pulses doing damage which is not mitigated by the foam ear plugs.

Maybe after I'm dead it will be confirmed by extensive studies to that effect.
I suppose i'll just have to go to my grave with the last sounds i'll ever hear being the ringing in my ears from tinnitus.

Certainly a loud bike, even with the stock system. I rarely wear earplugs on the road, but always on the track. I seem to go faster when I'm isolated from the wind noise specifically...

I have been wear the same type of ear plugs for many years as I have tinnitus as well. Found your comments interesting on the low frequency noise. Might have to do some more research on how to manage it.

I wear ear plugs for all the reasons stated.
Less chance of damage to ears, better to hear the bike and traffic.

Hell, I'm one of those types that wear my ear plugs even when I don't wear a helmet.

I use the E•A•R foam ones with flames on them to make me faster. Buy by the box on Amazon.com.

Highly recommended on any bike.
