Looks like from Google maps they have their own lot.

Thanks, I can't get the detail from mobile google maps I can from my laptop, it's just too cumbersome of an interface.

Looks good Andy, how's the parking situation? Might they have their own lot?

I was thinking Yamaha too. That front fender screams 1968 two stroke, doesn't it? I looked up XS400's and SR500's but the bikes we got here had the 7 spoke wheels with two ribs per spoke, and they all had disk brakes on the front. This appears to be 6 spoke drum front? But if you zoom in on the handlebars, there are no front brake or clutch levers? No wonder he's riding the rear brake and has a death grip on the bars! That rear brake pedal screams Honda with the way it loops under the exhaust like that. The headlight doesn't look vintage either, looks like an H4 bulb unit. And between that skinny front tire and the way he's sitting way up foreword on the tank to make room for his passenger, I'm thinking this is a small bore bike.  I wonder if it's a 'Bitsa' project?

Notice too that that cylinder head has 8 cooling fins on it. Most bikes that came to the states have between 5 and 7, so it could be of more 'regional' origin considering the climate.

Cheers Ben, Happy Sunday to all.

That's a tough one Ben.

I think you'very got me there. The more I read, the more conflicting info I find.

My conclusion is not to choose earplugs based solely on NRR value, because different materials block or filter different frequencies better than others.

Hi Alan, what you have that lowers 33db?
Thanks!!

These are also available at walmart, they're not half bad.

http://www.earplugstore.com/flents-quiet-time-ear-plugs-bottle.html

I just found that website, there seems to be quite a lot there.

...Alan?

Sorry, all I wanted was a Pepsi....

I think he meant that the noise reduction info wasn't evident on the company's website was making him uneasy.

Yes that was it, no NRR value listed that I could find, combined with some legal jargon attempting to invalidate the very NRR concept.
31's should be fine for most riding, for some workshop activities I use 33's to protect what hearing I have left.

They do seem interesting but I never did see an actual noise reduction rating anywhere on their website so I could compare them directly to other earplugs.

Then I found this which leaves me uneasy:

"-The EPA has selected the Noise Reduction Rating as the descriptor of hearing protector effectiveness to be utilized on the labels required by U.S. EPA Regulation 40 CFR Part 211 Subpart B. Decibullz makes no warranties as to the suitability of NRR as a measure of the actual protection afforded to the individual user."


EDIT... It's on the box in the photos, NRR 31
