My brother, 58, a weekend biker, asked about "balance issues" while riding without helmet at 60-70 mph. Can high speed wind in the ears cause balance issues? He had an workup by an otolaryngologist recently with no findings. He has no other known health issues at this time. He's not now, nor has he ever been, a druggie or boozer.

  • I would try wearing ear plugs to see if they have any effect.
