Thanks for the advice guys, highly appreciated!

This is my set up



afx fx-39 helmet
PJD motorcycle specific sunglasses from walmart with the rubber foam around the edges



I will follow the advice given here and go pick up a set of clear or yellow safety glasses from HD/LOWES, ill only be wearing them once it gets dark, and i do have a place to store them on the bike,

once again, thanks guys, thats exactly what i wanted to know.

Wicked Food for thought for other states.

I'm not sure how other no helmet states work, but in Pennsylvania you are still required by law to wear some type of eye protection at all times. I personally have a modular helmet and still wear some type of eyewear all the time. I periodically like to keep something open just for that lil bit of extra air.

What do you guys think about something like this?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Foam-Padded-...06%26rk%3D2%26

i think i would rather pick those up then just standard safety glasses from the HD.

They look like knock-off Wiley-X.

The thing about safety glasses at Home Depot is that you can be relatively sure that they've passed tests for impact resistance and will be effective, even if they look dorky. The same can not be said for random no-name glasses or goggles from online sellers on auction sites.

abnslr screwed with this post 09-16-2012 at 11:54 AM Reason: adding extra shit

Go buy a pair of clear safety glasses, often find them in the hunting section of Wally's, Target, Harbor Frt, Nothern Tools, etc.

So maybe your tats, loud angry hawg or fat tired metric just aren't scaring the blue hairs anymore in their Japanese hybrid vehicle on their way to bingo.

Says it all really, doesn't it. They're for bullies whose idea of fun is intimidating little old ladies.

Lol!! I agree with you, full face helmet is sooo much better, my only reasoning was I wanted a motorcycle helmet that was close to the Raiders helmet... Put the emblems on... But when it's cold.. The open face stinks.... And the neoprene masks stink...(My kids little league football team is the raiders).... I sometimes ride to his games...it's all in fun...
