Since buying the 109, I have been concerned at my existing hearing losses, and future ones. Two Wheels had a good article on hearing loss, and it is the 80-100 kmh cruising that does your ears in. So, had a look at the ads on NETRIDER (free plug). and contacted Earmold. Now, in Vic, having a supplier that is not in the phone book, or on the net makes it a little bit harder to get to!. By Email, was advised it is a factory in Campbellfield. From FTG, it is a long way. However, Daniel at Dansafe, and Ashley his offsider. made me welcome, and in short order had me fitted with a custom set of moulded earplugs. The whole proces was professional and affable. And I got to say, they make a huge difference on a longer ride. No more headaches after long rides!. Supposedly they can last for 2-3 yrs, so look out for an extended ride report on them. Do I recommend them? Have to wait and see. At $65 they wont break the bank, and I guess my hearing is worth 2 slabs!
