Question ? on mirrored visors

I'm thinking about getting one but wanted to know how are they for ridding at night or on overcast days. Or would you recommend clear visor and sunglasses.

Thanks for any help you can give.

They look cool, but they suck for visibility at night and Heaven-forbid if you get a scratch in them...the sun will blind you from the glare/scratch.

I actually wear mine all the time, the only time that I find it really sucks at night is if you get caught out in the country, but around the city I have no problems.

There is a device out, it's like a 2" or 3" tinted strip that attaches to the visor by static charge..
They make two version, one standard and one for Arai..
I know the BMW dealer on Van Dyke has them...

Here is a sales link... There is a website somewhere

I have plenty of scratches in mine and it doesn't bother me at all... no real glare to speak of either. Not that getting them all scratched up is a good thing, but after 5000 miles of bugs, rocks, and rolling on some concrete once it's still holding up pretty well.

better take the clear one with you if you will be riding during the night though. they're terrible for that.

I have a mirror visor on my ICON helmet and I really don't run into any problems with glare or vision problems when it's dark out. I guess its just personal preference and what you like. Otherwise they would only make one kind of visor for everyone. Just my

Clear with shades is the way to go...IMHO.

Been doing it for years. Got stuck at night with a tinted visor a looong time ago. Kinda sucked for riding home...it's all about clear.
