During the day I use dark lens safety glasses. When it's too dark for
those I just ride with the visor up. The Norge's fairing has my head
in still air so no problem there. If I'm riding a fairingless bike I
use the visor if I need it.
I know this is just .co.us, but I thought I'd share it anyway: You
don't have to wear a helmet here, but you *do* have to have eye
protection at all times. If a cop sees you on a running bike-- and it
was unclear if it mattered if the bike was physically moving, or if it
counted just so long as the engine was going-- with your visor up, and
no sunglasses on, he can ticket you for that. Yes, that means even if
you raise your visor briefly to wipe your eyes. Pull over and do it
if it's a safety issue, we were told.
Used to have a pair of clear safety glasses for low light conditions
but now I have a lid with a visor that stays up and doesn't catch air
I don't bother.
Mine has two visors-- one smoked, for daylight riding, and one clear.
The vents are pretty good, though I haven't ridden with it in 90+degF
(30+ degC) weather, so I don't know how painful it will be.
