Ordered - thanks! I have small ear canals so these should be great. I bought "ladies" ear plugs because they're smaller and fit better. Which sounds weird if it's said out of context..... Earplugs have always been a challenge because after a few hours in the saddle my ears swell a bit and they are hard to reinsert after a lunch stop. The small plugs seem to have alleviated that issue. I have played around extensively with wind management on all my road bikes that have fairings or shields. The quietest bike I ever had was a 2005 GS with Cal-sci tall shield and Cee-Bailey wings. Only bike I ever had that didn't require ear plugs. But tire noise from others using the road was still there of course, and that can be loud! I now have a 2016 RT with stock shield. It is surprisingly quiet to the extent that I do not feel I need to change it out, which is a first. Really the loudest thing (aside from car tire noise) is the intake noise. It just hits a certain harmonic that penetrates my helmet. Ear plugs do reduce it significantly though. Overall I would say the second quietest bike I have owned. Maybe a tie with my 2014 Street Glide with fork fangs and a 11 inch Freedom wide touring shield and quiet pipes.
