@ Hear Hear.

thanks for the clarification. I guess I get up in arms when people begin associating certain things with intelligence (even though that's not what you were aiming at)

And yes, they DO recommend you wear earplugs for motorcycles. Though, it has less to do with the fact of the noise generated from the machine. It's the same reason they have a lot of truck drivers that are deaf or nearly deaf in their left ear. The wind force on your ear while driving with the window down (or no windows in the case of motorcycles) is actually the culprit for deafness.

I didn't believe it until my stepdad told me (he's a trucker), and in fact it's true...pre-airconditionning was murder on the left ear of truckers unless they wore an ear plug.

Perhaps the logic follows. Perhaps not.

edit

My statement is false. It is the synergy of sound between both the machine and the wind force generated that creates the problem.
