    What eye protection do you wear while riding?

    I've been close to loosing an eye while at the lake. I rarely ride anymore without a pair of safety glasses (shaded or clear)

    If you don't wear goggles, it just makes sense. I usually spend about $30 a year on them, and write them off on my taxes, along with my safety boots and stuff for work.

    I've been using:

    for the last couple of years. I like their selection and their pictures. They've never screwed up an order for me.


    EDIT: I've been happiest with these $3 crews checkmates.... lite, cheap, and comes in colors.

    I wear glasses all the time so when I ride my ski I wear Oakley goggles over my glasses. I treat the lens of the goggles with Rain X so that the water just flows off. The goggles keeps my glasses clear and dry. I may look a little strange with these hugh goggles on my face, but at least I can see.

    I just bought a pair of goggles this summer. I got tired of losing my glasses off my face when I turned my head sideways

    I got me some Harley Davidson moon goggles with a yellow tint...they still leak air @ 80 mph which makes the eyes water. The only thing that truely works for me is helmet wrap arounds..which look retarded without a helmet on.

    When im rec riding and making hydrotoys look silly on my sanford and son racing gpr I wear sun glasses. I have learned not to turn my head. When racing endurance(or sprints) I wear sweet red tinted helmet wrap around. Lets me see exaactly where folmer is and its much less of a hassle passing him.

    11, how fast is that stxr of yours running? I need to mod the crap out of my stxr. only thing good on it is the umi steering and the 12 vien skat pump. Give me some ideas on what todo and not todo on this thing. I am lost when it comes to modding it. However working on this motor is a dream compared to the sanford and sons racing gpr.

    73 on race gas/total loss.

    If you don't race, go for a GK Big Bore.

    If you do, the stock motor gets along very well with the BRM50 buckshots, raise compression, a stinger mod (a la P-E or Skiworx) and you're good to go should get you high 60s...

    Then triples...
