I shave my head, so i've been wearing helmet liners for years. Theres just something about a snug helmet pushing in on earbuds that bothers me. After awhile I get sore ears as well. I'd be willing to bet you don't get the same 30-32db noise reduction consistently with earbuds that you get with a new pair of foam expanding ear plugs either. That's why even though its quieter, I like hearing the music through the earplugs instead of AS the earplugs.

Lol, my left ear canal is smaller than my right by just a little.

Look up Radians custom earplugs on Amazon. For around $10 you can make a pair of custom silicone earplugs. Been wearing them for about 6 years now and they beat every other earplug I've tried. YMMV.

Tips if you buy them: The amount of material is a little too much, so after they've cured for a day, use a razor knife and cut off the excess from the back of the earplug so that it's flat and is recessed a little in your ear. I use a drill bit to make a hole through to the tip that sits furthest in your ear so it doesn't create an air-tight seal (which is really annoying while riding) and allows some sound in, especially from helmet mounted speakers, while still blocking wind noise.

I have very little hair as well. I do have an old helmet liner but I need a new one. What do you use?? And from what I've ridden so far the Sena speakers work OK. At speeds over 50 MPH pretty much useless but "Oh well". And one of my ear canal is smaller than the other one that is why I've stayed with EAR yellow foam plugs. Thanks so much for all your input.

If you want to make it easy on yourself, just get the “Heat out” brand one from your local Cycle Gear, if you have one. Affordable and covers your whole head and ears. Yeah i agree with the wind noise thing. I find the FJR has a fair amount of wind noise because it displaces a lot of air around your body. My naked bike has much less wind noise up until about 90 where it starts to rip your helmet off..lol

With my old Honda CBR600F3 when I got over 100 MPH I had a hard time keeping my helmet from moving all over the place.

All the F series CBR’s are top notch in my opinion. Maybe not the CRAZIEST bikes but they are so stable and so consistent that you can keep up with the crazy bikes. I used to have a Hurricane.

I grew up in Fairlee Vt btw
