Alpine Hearing Protection : MotoSafe : Review

I think pretty much every motorcyclist now accepts that hearing protection is an essential piece of kit.

For years it was a very neglected part of motorcycle safety, however now we are well aware of the dangers of prolonged exposure to loud noises. In fact some reports state that a mere 30 minutes of exposure to motorcycle engine noise is dangerous enough to potentially cause long term damage to a person’s ears.

Being honest though I came a little late to the hearing protection idea.

However since starting using hearing protection I have been using or rather trying out a lot of different options, from disposables to a pretty expensive custom fitted set of ear plugs and struggled to find my ideal set. I found the disposables pretty good – however they tended to work their way out of my ear over a pretty short period of time. Comfort wise I found them spot on, but there isn’t much point in wearing something that doesn’t stay in your ear.

Then take the custom made ear plugs. I got these in work so didn’t personally fork out for them – thankfully. I have no doubt they offer top class protection however they are so uncomfortable that they actually verge on painful – and that pain comes quickly, maybe after an hour or two my ears and head are thumping.

Coming Soon – Long Term Reviews & Tests

As bikers we all have our favourite kit and brands. We use them over a long period of time and develop opinions on them. Generally speaking it is the kit that we use for a long time and that works well then become the brands that we favour. 

I will soon start posting long term reviews of kit that I have and have been using for some time. I will be pointing out the good and the bad, the price and the mileage the gear has covered and all importantly when it is done, will I replace it?

Sticky Post : New Site Section : Motorcycling…

Like motorcycling?  You are in for a treat!

If you take a quick look up to the top of the site you will see some separate sub sections such as ‘About’, ‘Events’ and so on…

Look a little closer and you will see the latest one – ‘Motorcycling’ 

As this is such a big section of the site and let’s be honest there are some epic biking posts contained in here I decided it needed its own dedicated section.  That means the site will stay dynamic with newest posts going to the main page which won’t therefore get filled with ‘Sticky’ Posts so the new stuff keeps appearing but the epic bike stuff remains ridiculously easy to find too… WIN WIN!

Now what are you waiting for, go on click it… ‘Motorcycling.’
