    Do you wear ear plugs?

    Thread Starter: 1/32 man

    A mate showed me some he had custom made at an audiologist...said they were good but cost him $150. Are there cheaper but still effective options. After today’s ride of about 70mins I am contemplating using some. Any comments or opinions welcome.

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
