    Welcome to the "NA-to-NX250 upgrade club"! We'll teach you the secret handshake shortly!

    It's one beauty of a hammock, no?

    Earplugs...

    Just a small tip from the moto side of things. Your local Audiologist can make custom fitted ones and they are the best way to ride/sleep (if made right). They will not cause your ear canals to hurt because they are poured into your ear and thus are formed perfectly for that 8 to 10 hour night. Mine ran aboput $50, worth every penny.

    How do these compare to the disposable foam ones... comfort wise?

    The foam plugs always caused my ears to hurt. The trade off being fit with sound reduction. My take is comfort levels are much better than foam and sound reduction is about the same maybe a bit better (compared to proper foam plugs). Best hearing protection out IMO...some do not like the custom plugs FYI. At the rifle range they have no comparison when coupled with ear muffs. They cover a portion of your outer ear as well.

    One very nice thing is wash your hands and your plugs at the same time. They last a long time as in years. Hijack ends...

    My choice of plugs

    I love the E.A.R. TaperFits (the yellow ones). Very soft, and come in two sizes. So far I have not experienced any discomfort from the plugs. Rite-Ais sells a tan plug, name escapes me, that is almost as soft.

    I have never tried the custom fit ones, or the self-mouldable silicone ones. I like the idea of chucking them after a couple of uses (cannot be washed as they absorb water and swell up).

    Now those plugs that are rigid - the ones that sort of look like a pine tree - are horribly uncomfortable to me. Hate 'em.

    Jim

    Just remembered: Rite Aid sells Hear-Ohs or something like that. They are OK if you cannot get E.A.R. plugs.
