    Thanks for sharing

    Thank you all for sharing some good experience. My major concern was just seeing the road THROUGH THE VISOR. That seems to remain an issue until technology comes up with a heated visor. Seems outlandish but then there are now airbags on motorcycles.

    I had overlooked being seen at all so those suggestions were almost helpful.

    Thanks especially to the West Coast riders who seem to deal with this issue on a daily basis.

    Also, headlight on low beam, fog lights, if you've got them, on. And remember, fog lights need to be low to shine under the fog. Put them up high and they don't work.
    +1 for the little wiper built in thingy in the fog, +2 for held gloves

    I seem to remember that some snowmobile outfitters had heated visors several years ago. Maybe Dennis Kirk?

    Rider's Wearhouse sells packs of 3 different sizes. I think <$10.

    Slow to a speed that suits your visibility and the visibility of the person that may hit you from behind if you are too slow. Wear gear that can be seen, even if it is an add-on vest or belt/tabard, the built in wipers in the Held gloves are great but a wiper of any brand is advantageous, low beam on the headlights and if you have them turn on the fog lights as they diffuse the light nicely to prevent bounce-back.
