What riding glasses can you guys suggest? I want to go with the half helmet now that it's warmer and put the full helmet in the closet 'til November. The glasses I have suck at keeping wind/dust/bugs out of my eyes. Can y'all suggest a good pair w/ a good price?

I bought a pair at my local bike shop. I think they are Global Vision. I paid around 15 bucks for them. You need to get the ones with the rubber/neoprene pads around the eyes to keep out wind and dust. I dont know if you've ridden with a half helmet before, if not, I highly recommend getting some ear plugs. The wind noise is terrible. :-\

Wind Riders at Walmart (here in Florida) $13.87 . . . I've got a couple hundred miles on them and for the $$ they are very good.
They are not listed on the website for some reason.

I have a set of Guard Dogs with changeable lenses. Makes it nice when I ride out near dusk and know Ill need to change them to clear at some point.

If a rock hits your glasses you want a csa/msa saftey approved lense that is proven not to break or shatter. Its your eyes.... Drive safe

BackinBlack, yeah you weren't lying. I don't think the half helmet is for me. The wind noise is unreal. It would be better w/ no helmet at all.

I ride with the smallest legal helmet. Almost a Skull. I wear perscription glasses, so I wear Wiley X motorcycle glasses which are made to my perscription. Love them. Have two pairs and am looking at a third pair now. You pay around $50 for them if you just want the glasses without a perscription. They are Ballistic eyewear. 8)

TX, you're right. It is better with no helmet. When I go to Florida and dont wear a helmet, I dont need ear plugs. Give the half helmet another try with some plugs and good glasses. I didnt think I would like it either but I prefer it now over my full face. However, if I'm doing a trip with alot of interstate, I'll wear the full face. I feel like my head is going to get pulled off with the half helmet at about 80mph. LOL

BackinBlack I'll try again sometime. Maybe a super small helmet that will hug my dome more. Less room for air around my listeners

In Ontario Canada, so there is no confusion with the Ontario California, it is now LAW that you can't wear any devices in your ears to block sound, or listen to music. :eek:
