If you can’t see good on both sides and to the rear get better mirrors. I always see cars before I hear them. Make no mistake, they are all out to kill you.

A good helmet offers quite a bit of hearing protection without using plugs. A bonus is you can still “chat” with idiot drivers and hear their excuses for why they did what they did.

I've used the yellow foam EAR plugs for riding for years. You have to use them correctly -- roll up tight before inserting, then hold your finger against the end as they expand to fill the ear canal. Don't reuse, get a fresh pair each day. I bought a whole box at a safety supply store, it lasts forever. Although I've been known to use ear buds frim time to time.

But not all ears are the same, some cant handle the pressure inside the ear canal, others may react to different materials. Dont just try one brand. Lots of different types available.

A good full face helmet is key too. I have both Shoei and Nolan brands.

Also, many stock motorcycle mirrors suck. Aftermarket models are available but it isn't easy to find one that works -- good viewing and minimal vibration. I had to try a couple sets for my Kawasaki before I found a keeper.
