As it is starting to get a bit cooler in the mornings (put the heated grips on for the last part of the journey today!) I know I will soon face the problem of my glasses getting steamed up inside my helmet.
What do other glasses wearers do - are breath guards effective?
Reminds me of a few years ago when i went with some mates to a “Gentleman’s Evening” You know, the comedian and strippers thing. my mate Steve had his glasses removed from his head and a young lady did unmentionable thing with them. Needless to day they came back all smeary:w00t:
He reckoned that after giving them a wipe that they never steamed up inside his lid for ages.:P:D:D
Breath guards sort of work. The one in my AGV leaks a bit of warm air up the outside of my nose which slightly fogs the glasses but I ride with a slightly opened visor, matchstick width, so that clears quickly.
Ride magazine (March) tested visor anti fog stuff (not quite the same problem) and the best of the anti fog applications was Fog Tech. Should work on glasses.
Of course, you could hold your breath for the length of the journey.
I’ve been using an anti-fogging/glare product on me specs for the last few years, it’s made by a company called hawaii business show enterprises, and it looks like a stick of pink wax. Incredibly effective, although i’ve never seen it in any shops. the only place i’ve seen it on sale was at the british motor show this summer there were a couple of stands demonstrating it.
I brought some at the Excel show. I couldn’t remember whats it’s called, but they do have a website i remember them saying. I see if they are at the BMF for you. My dad used to use this stuff all the time on his glasses. You can used it on any types of glass and works up to a number of days, and last a really long time (one stick for a year, for sometime like glasses).
