Fogging and the C3

Yes, fogging is a big issue with this helmet. I have not figured out a way to keep it clear, except clean it almost every time I go out. Winter or summer it is a problem. Very frustrating. If I knew...

270 is crazy

I live in Baltimore, use the Inter-county Connector and go down 270 frequently. Cage drivers are aggressive, distracted and stupid. I hope he gets better soon.
