Saw this on a different motorcycle website:

200 ear plugs for $23 plus shipping. Call if you order and request no catalog to save on shipping costs.

The last time I bought mine it was off eBay. It was a pretty good deal, you just have to keep your eye on hidden shipping costs.

Is it illegal to ride w/ ear plugs in? :huh: How about listening to music?

Yes, it is illegal to listen to music with ear plugs in... ;-)

Well they let deaf people drive don't they? So I can't really see why they would make it illegal to have musical earplugs. :)

I got a set of the molded earplugs last year, and a wired set with speakers inthem. Unless I lose em I won't need earplugs for a long long time.

I bought 2 set of custom ear plus. One set has the strings attached. I hate them. The string acts like a string on a tin can and everytime the string is touched it sound like finger nails scraped across a blackboard. :eek:

There must be a better way to attach strings to ear plugs , I see people using them alot.

Any ideas ?

According to the AMA database, it appears that neither is illegal in Texas. Here's a link to what they have posted on their website:

I was recently pulled over by a DPS trooper and removed my earplugs as we were talking. He ignored that and stayed focused on giving me a warning (thank you, thank you, thank you!) for going 10 over instead. ;-)

The guy that stopped us on the way out to Big Bend asked me if he needed to wait for me to remove the plugs before he started lecturing me... :lol:

.... musical earplugs. :)


Are those earplugs that keep switching ears every time the music stops?

:huh:

I use Silencio foam ear plugs. They are rated a 32db. You can pick up a dozen at the Wally Mart for two dollars. I keep a few in all of my jackets. I also use them when shooting skeet.
