I am not a sunglasses kinduva guy. I don't wear them.

One of the quirks of riding two wheels is a lack of a Sun visor. The worst part of Interstate 10 through Texas is that it takes weeks to go from border to border and for 4 hours every day there is nothing but the Sun to see.

I can only hold my hand up there for so long.

I bought a helmet that has this flip down tinted visor thing....


Really doesn't do much for the glare. So I used a Dremel to cut it off at about 1-1/2 inches then painted it black. Perfect Sun visor. Easily adjustable for any angle of the Sun. I usually have it about 1/2" down.

Solid fix (regardless of the road you ride haha). In the past, I've used a strip or two of black electrical tape on a visor similar to what you're accomplishing with your black paint but on the flip-down main clear visor part of your helmet.
Harder (not impossible I suppose) to accomplish the same thing on goggles as that's what I use now for my type of riding but you have given me a thought on those late day riding into the sun conditions.

I recently bought a set of 100% Armega goggles with the silver mirror lenses. They work very well for bright sunny days with lots of glare. Was suprised how well they also are for normal days with clouds and low light. I also bring a clear lens that can be changed quickly, if needed for early morning, late evening, dark days, or night riding. The silver mirror lenses work for 95% of what we normally ride. Just another opt

That Arai XD-4 is the best helmet I've had in 42 years !
The only problem I've had is that my ears fold down as I put the helmet on. During weeks long motorcycle trips, they actually get raw taking the thing on and off so many times. I solved the problem with a head sock.
