What can I do to limit my ear's exposure to the wind?

...should more than compensate for breadth of ears.

an open face motorcycle helmet. Would this be to hot? I could get one of those bubble face sheilds to further help out with wind resistance.

Just get an aerodynamic helmet, Rudy Project has an awesome one, costs less than a motorcycle helmet and a bubble and not near as hot

You should not use a Ninja motorcycle for your TT.

You know that pirate type cloth bandana Marco Pantani wears? Well, it's got some loose fabric that hangs down the back. Maybe you could try one of those and bring the extra flaps around in front, pulling the ears in. Alternatively, goggles instead of sunglasses. Put the strap over the ears, instead of above them.

Just trying to help.

I use a lycra headband to keep wind out of my ears when it is cold out. This also removes a lot of wind noise and is quite comfortable.You should be able to get one from just about any bike catalogue.
