Funny ear plugs story... Riding today I was wearing my gel plugs. First off while geared up and walking to the bike I could feel my footsteps thud through my body. That was weird. About 2 hours into the ride I stopped to eat 1/2 turkey sandwich I had packed in my tank bag and drink a little water. Just pulled over into a shady spot on the edge of a gas station, sat on my seat sideways, flipped my modular shield up and started eating. Chewing and swallowing is an extraordinarily weird sound when your ears are plugged. An hour later I went to pass a slow moving car, signaled I was pulling out, pulled forward, tapped the horn button twice to let the driver know I was passing and ..rats my horn quit working. Finished my pass signaled and pulled back in. Got to thinking about the horn. Bent over right above the tank and hit the horn button again .. greeted with real muted meep meep. It was working, just couldn't hear it with the ear plugs in. I'd say the ear plugs were working too well lol.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I ride...every day. "Ferret"
