A solution for those of you that end up riding both during the day, but end up stuck riding home at night. Bring your clear visor and w/ these sunglasses, you'll be just fine.

Oakley Wind Jacket
Protect your eyes from the wind while maintaining the proper level of cool with the Oakley Wind Jacket ($220). Designed with motorcyclists in mind, the Wind Jacket is a modified version of the Split Jacket, featuring snap-in gaskets for a protective, wind-blocking seal, a removable strap to keep them securely sitting on your noggin, and included sets of interchangeable dark and light lenses so you can keep your eyes from drying out whether it's a sunny day or moonless night.

pardon the pun, but I don't see the point of these.

Bring an extra visor.
put it in a sleeve or cover and it tucks inside your jacket around your hip or waist.

why would I want plastic objects bouncing around inside my helmet in the event of a crash?

if you're the type of moron that wears a half-helmet then those $220 goggles are a good choice.

(1/3 of all impacts in a motorcycle crash are to the face and lower jaw - google 'half helmet crash photo')

I've tried these on a few different times and can't get over how WIDE the sides are initially. I get that it blocks more sun in your peripheral but god damn they swallow my head LOL

you should look into the asian fit then, they are a smaller version that might fit you better

Interesting, never heard of asian fit glasses. I do have a smaller, narrower head. I like the glasses, just always felt goofy when I try them on due to the sides being so large.

yeah you two should look into the asian fit styles then, the half jacket xlj's have a curved lense that would help with the cheek problem but im sure those are more manly then you want lol

the batwolfs are like the gascans but the lense is one piece right? if so they look pretty good!

I have a pair of the gas cans and the flak jackets. I wear the flak jackets under my helmet on days when I want to let some more air than the little vent tabs allow, like today... 102 in dallas and I was on the bike ALL day.

I get more visibility in my peripheral vision with the flaks than i do with the gas cans.

:+1: for the Flak Jackets. Have a couple different lenses for them. Super easy to swap out. Plus they dont have that funky temple that sticks out like on the Half Jacks...they are just flat and fit under helmets much better.

The Gascans look good on some people....but not me lol.
