Riding Gears

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

Riding Gears

If you are a rider then you need to use the riding gears such as a jacket, helmet, boots, gloves and hearing protection. Helmet and hearing protection are the essential equipment both are useful to get a safety life. If you don't use them then you will be suffering from a lot of issues such as hearing loss, tinnitus.
If you get the tinnitus problem then you never cure it. So you need to be very careful so that you never get the tinnitus. Every motorcycle rider must meet with the noise induced hearing loss due to the wind and engine noises.
So, riders need to use the custom hearing protection such as earplugs. If you use the custom earplugs then you will protect yourself from any hearing loss.
Please visit the following websites and get more information regarding the hearing protection.

Soft disposable plugs stop as much noise as the silicon moulded to fit type. Silicon are £50 up a bag of disposables is a £10 ...
Your ears are cartiledge they grow and change shape - the disposables will always fit the silicone will last a certain time.
Personally I like the soft ones and you can always carry a couple of extra soft pairs.

Thanks for the tip. It's not something I'd really thought about. Still early in my riding career so hopefully can do something before it gets to the tinnitus stage.
