[quote=“914”]I also have a question about helmets. It’s really silly, but a good health question nonetheless.
I see people riding around with the visorless helmets. Whenever I do this (as a passenger), all this dust flies into my eyes and they sting. How do those people ride around like that? I kind of figured after a while they become accustomed to it and it doesn’t bother them? Like opening your eyes under water? Sometimes I just wear my glasses to keep dust away but they still find a way into my eyes.
Do any of you ride without visors?[/quote]Good point, 914. A surprisingly large proportion of motorbike accidents involve some irritation to the eyes. I occasionally ride with my visor flipped up, though, in the full knowledge that it’s extremely silly and I’m inviting trouble.[quote=“Mordeth”]I always wear eye protection of some kind. Even at night if I’m wearing a half-helmet and I have my contacts in…I’ll still put on a pair of clear or yellow tinted wrap around sports glasses.[/quote]That’s what I should do.
