Earplug help...

Allright, I've Googled the everloving shit out of this and have not come up with anything...I want a set of those custom made silicone earplugs that I have seen sold at the bike show at Cobo, and also I saw the same booth set up at vintage days at Mid Ohio last year...for $60, the squirt some liquid silicone in your ear, wait for it to harden, and boom, you have earplugs that fit perfect...well, I don't want to wait till the bike show, and I'm not going to be able to make the AMA race at Mid O, and I'm not sure if they would even have them there anyway...I have found some at local hearing places around here, but they seem to take forever and are more expensive...so, anybody have any idea where to find these guys that do this?

Try checking out hunting/gun shows, I can't think of any of the places that do it, but they're always around those shows

Hey Mike.
There were 2 groups at the Motorcycle show at the new Novi ROck convention center last winter. They are:

Ear-iffic Molds
Tim McCarty
2363 Brittany Lane
Marietta, GA 30062
Phone: 770-992-0048
Fax: 770 992 0048

Nationwide Alliance for Hearing Protection
Mark or Glenn Hood
7370 S. US Hwy. 85/87
Fountain, CO 80817
Phone: 719 635 6700
Fax: 719 635 3665
http://www.myearplugz.com/

The Nationwide Alliance for Hearing Protection has a nice site. I am not sure of the turnaround times.

However, you could call either of these groups and see if they have anyone in our area who they can recommend.

Thanks Judge, I talked to that place today and they were kinda spendy and took a long time, they sent the molds out to have the plugs made...the guy I am using Monday is one of the guys from the MC show at Novi last year...

I have tried to wear earplugs while riding and it totally threw my balance off. It was weird! So, I do not ride with them, although that is a dumb thing to do.

Weird, but you're not the only one - when we were talking about riding with mp3 players and such a few other people mentioned they couldn't ride with anything in their ears either

turnaround was kinda slow but all I paid was 80 for the filtered ones.
