Do you wear earplugs on track days?

Just curious to see who wears earplugs on track days here. I know many of us wear them when commuting.

I have had only two track days so far, but I wore earplugs half of my sessions. I like wearing them.


How about you all?

I tried last trackday but couldn't do it. Already got to remember to put my glasses on. Adding plugs was just another thing to remember. Besides, I'm not bothered by the noise...

I do. Easier to relax and concentrate without all that wind noise filling my head.

I'm fine without them. It's all personal preference. Try them out. If you don't like them, don't wear them.

I wear them every time I ride.
