I have been looking into motorcycle riding for a few years now. I have a BAHA and was wondering how it would work with helmets. Obviously motorcycle helmets are very tight (for a good reason of course) so my BAHA would not fit.
Options I thought of, would like feedback of course:
- Would I be able to cut out a small part of the helmet in the inside? Is the material even able to be cut? That way my BAHA would not interfere when my helmet is on. It’s probably not the best idea to mess with the helmet, but I don’t think I would be putting myself at any more risk.
Option 2. Just don’t wear it. I am basically 100% deaf, but I think I would be able to hear important sounds on the road (car horns, emergency sirens, etc). Is this something that is commonly done by deaf riders?
If anyone has any advice, I would sure appreciate it. I really want to get into the motorcycle world, but this is holding me back a bit. Thank you!
