A lot of you have ridden with me and have seen the ear plugs that I wear. They are silicone, molded to my ears. They are a convertible earplug, which means that they have a cord that you can take out, or leave in, depending upon what you’re wearing them for. These ear plugs that I have (and that are recommended for motorcyclists) are vented and thus allow you to hear outside noises (ambulances, screeching cars, etc.) while removing the wind noise and high decibels that will ruin your hearing. I find them very comfortable, and the company will guarantee that they will last for 5 years. (They keep the original mold on file and will make another pair for you at a cost of $65 + tax).
I have just spoken with the representative, and he is offering these ear plugs for $83 + GST to us (the regular price is $130). He also looks after the Vancouver Island district and will also make arrangements for those of you who are in the Okanagan and Caribou that wish to purchase them. He tells me that he will come to your home and do the mold for you. The plugs take about three weeks to arrive.
If you’re interested, you can check out their website at www.protectear.com and the model number that I’m speaking of is NNR25 “db Blockers Convertible Vented”.

You may have seen their booth at the Motorcycle Show at Tradex, and if you want to wait until then I know they can make them at the show. For all of you fashion buffs, there are different colours too!!
