Maybe stupid - maybe yes, maybe no, maybe babe I don't know....

As of "paying for my own medical expenses" - I do not have to pay for anything, since I "belong" to European "medical health insurance system" where we are already insured if we are employed, or if we are students, or if we are retired, or if we are "registered with the employment bureaus", or....... We are not medicaly insured only if we are stupid enough not to be insured. So, the money for medical insurance in the most of European countries (Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Croatia, Bosnia......) is not an issue. You are somehow "automaticaly" insured. You get sick - you go to hospital. But no hospital can help you if you stupid like we are, "the-people-who-like-loud-muffs", that's the truth, you are right!

No different than us smokers, I guess.

Or the tubby's that live on fast food.

What about practicing that 'thing' that makes you go blind?:D

BTW- I like quiet pipes. Stealth mode keeps radars down.

Actually, wind blast is more damaging to your hearing than loud pipes.

BINGO! and thank you. I'm so used to wearing a full face I could not believe how loud the wind was the other day when I went out with my half on. God, I'm getting soft! Hell, even with a full face I use plugs on the road. Truthfully, I love the sound of performance pipes on my Buell and Harleys (some more than others) but, since I generally wear a full face or modular it's the droning in the helmet that gets to me. I came back from a trip to the mountains awhile back on the Buell. I was running a wicked, bellowing, Special Ops pipe that sounds oh so good, but the droning got in the tight fitting Arai I was wearing and it drove me crazy when I didn't have twisties to keep me occupied. :chopper:

I agree, the web site is great, really like the Harley sound download, not a "fake kicker".

WHAT!?!?!? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!!

But then, I get to blame the military for being mostly deaf. Listening to static, trying to hear druggies doesn't help a persons hearing too much.....

Retired, I've used the plugs before, they work good, they block most of the wind. I don't think I'd be able to hear my stereo then though.....

Foamies

An idea if you're going to wear the foamie ear plugs.

Since most of them are a lovely shade of green or orange, and chances are, your bike and nail polish is black. They clash! Unless your hair is long enough to cover them up.

There are plugs that are the color of skin. to match your ears, not your earings. Most people don't even know you're wearing them. The ones I tried at Walgreens seem to do ok.

Wear foam earplugs - you'll still hear the engine, but, your ears will survive.

I'm with you Ted. I bought a bottle of them (200 pieces) at the local pharmacy for a couple of bucks.

Sorry to dissapoint you, but this Thread, these Posts and as well as myself have nothing to do with Yugoslavia. Neither you Americans, apart from that that you did the air strikes, thank God.

Wyodude, are you sure about that "wind/wind blast thing" ? I mean that the wind blast is more dangerous to our hearing system than the sound of the loud mufflers?

Well, I am on the stand point that the loudest mufflers can be quiet if you control the throttle. The only problem is an engine start.
