    Well, I know that CycleGadgets shipping is out of sight. No way it could possibly cost $20 to ship something like that. Looks to me like it could go USPS in an envelope for few bucks. When I have bought things from BMW dealers in the past, they just charged me their actual cost to ship.

    I guess I'll ask again if anyone has bought this item from a vendor with real world shipping cost.

    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.
    I have an HJC and I had to practice changing the visor a few times before I got the hang of it. But, once I did, it is pretty quick to do. In the summer I have a smoke visor on nearly all the time. The tint looks darker from the outside that it does from the inside by far. On a sunny day, I still wear sunglasses with the smoke visor. When I am on the road for the day, I don't like to have to squint; it just detracts from overall comfort. On an overcast day, I leave off the sunglasses. I really only need to change to the clear visor when it is really dark. If I make it back home, or back to camp, by dusk, I can see perfectly well through the smoke visor without sunglasses.

    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?
    Did you phone them? While they are located pretty rurally in Eureka Springs, that doesn't sound correct and webpages often miscalculate shipping charges. That item could fit in a padded envelope and should be $4.95 or less to mail.

    I can tell you I paid maybe $7 for shipping on two. Else, I wouldn't have bought them!

    I have bought stuff from them and they are good people. Call them and see what's up.

    I just added one to my cart to see what the shipping charge was and it is $5.95.

    Did you ask for overnight by mistake?
