    Earsplugs, yes or no?

    Quick poll, how many of you use earplugs when riding? Either the custom-made wax forms or the cheaper, foam ones. I just recently started using the foam ones. I find I can hear the bike more, as the wind noise is decreased.

    I just started using the foam ones too. Riding is even more enjoyable now.

    None right now...
    Used foam ones for four years, then bought the custom silicone ones. I'm very happy with the silicone ones, they go in much easier.

    Ear plugs are great, I just use the cheap foam ones but I should get a molded pair. I only use them for highway riding.

    I've had a few custom plugs made, but prefer the foamies. I never ride without.

    I started wearing foam ones when I started riding.

    Switched to custom molded plugs at last years bike show. Best investment you can make.

    Just like 'em and stick them in.

    frequent use of earphones can damage ear drums as well, and they don't cut out wind noises

    I've riden a few times with my iPod on, mostly on longer trips. They dont do much for the wind noise, I also find it a little distracting.
