undefinedundefinedAt work we have hearing tests anually and the helmet thing was mentioned. I replied that I got just as much wind noise from the guttering on the car. Worst problem is if visor is partly up, can cause a whistling noise that drives you barking.....

You will only damage your ears if you are exposed to a loud noise repeatedly over a long period of time. Then you are likely to get tinnitus which has been known to drive folks mad. I'd wear earplugs on every long/fast journey.

I used earplugs a while back. I just found riding more uncomfortable, as I felt less aware of what was going on around me.
