A few weeks ago I was on the way to WestFest & points West and was on Hwy 50 west of Pueblo and getting hammered with crosswinds. I was dodging some afternoon thundershowers with success, then somewhere between Salida and Montrose something odd happened. All of the sudden it was quiet. I ride with foam earbuds and usually listen to music, but had music turned off for a while because of the noisy xwinds. Now when I say quiet, I mean I could not hear the engine, the pavement was relatively new and the knobs were making zero noise on the road surface, there was no exhaust sound and all wind noise was gone. It was like I was on an electric motorcycle riding through a giant Library and this continued for at least 20 miles at 65mph. A friend suggested my ears had not popped, but I am positive this was not the case. What I think happened is that Hwy 50 had turned away from torturous xwinds which were now at my back. Now I know the wind was not blowing at 65mph, but it caught the bike in such a manner as to cancel out the noise it usually made....some kind of a harmonics thing. For those that ever rode Harleys side by side(not staggered) at highway speed you will have noticed a partial noise cancelling harmonic which makes the sound change dramatically. This was different in that there just was a complete total absence of noise. Anyway, I'm closing in on half a million miles and this has never ever happened to me and I suspect it will never happen again. Just wondering it anyone else has ended up in the motorcyclist "cone of silence"? ...or am I going bat shit crazy?
