I can assure you that the "noise" wasn't a noise that would interfere with my hearing of vehicles behind. And so what if it did? They're behind me and therefore of no interest and like you say, maybe insignificant. If I wanted to turn right, I'd look back and/or look in my mirror.Steady rider wrote:Any vehicles approaching from the rear may have noise frequency similar to the vibration frequency/level of your straps and you may be less aware compared with someone without a helmet. Perhaps a minor disadvantage and hopefully will not be significant. ps I was first told about helmet strap noise back in about 1991.
By the time I'm doing fast enough for the vibration to start, there are loads of other noises going on. Wind in the ears for one thing.
As I said, I should be able to fix this. It's only a matter of damping out the resonance. Sticky tape or a lazzy band should do it.
Off out soon for a ride - maybe get wet, as it's raining a tad. I'll fit a small lazzy band before I leave. Yesterday, I was in no mood for stopping and sorting, I just kept going. By turning my head so I was "left eye leading" the vibration stopped completely. I'm very much in the "right eye leading" camp so it took a conscious decision to move my head slightly.
Off soon for a test of the lazzy band.
