    Hah-good one! Do you use clean or dirty socks?

    The reason I like this product, over socks or helmet bags, etc., is that it is tough. If you put it in a bag, and it is rubbing against something, like a rivet, a pen, a screwdriver, etc., it won't poke through. These things are tough. And heck, it's only $13 and will last longer than most helmets.

    I think the dirty sock imparts some anti-fog properties.

    I use one of these. It makes it easy to just pull over and change the shields quickly without getting off the bike and it is and easy way to carry if you don't have youre luggage on.

    One more vote for the Cycle Gadget product. Fits great in the curve of my tank bag and protects the shield completely. it wasone of the first accessories I bought my daughter when she started riding.

    http://www.cyclegadgets.com/Products...t.asp?Item=FSP

    The cyclegadgets product looks good to me, and I don't have a problem with $12.95 plus a couple bucks for US Mail shipping. The problem is they want $20 to send it US mail. That puts it over $30.

    I have notice some BMW dealers carry this. Has anyone found a source willing to ship at a reasonable cost?

    Right you are. I just sent the owner a PM on another forum that he's a member of, telling him there's a problem with his site. BTW, I have no affiliation with this business. I've bought a few things from his site, including the visor protector.

    I heard back and it turns out he is not taking individual orders, but advises folk to order through a dealer (like CycleGadgets).

    Storing Extra Visor

    "I'm afraid to try to change my (Arai) visor on the road."

    That's why I have two Arai helmets, one with a clear shield; another with a tinted one.

    It's easier to buy another helmet than try to change the shield.
