    Dec 5, 2003, 2:29 AM - Night time helmet wearing problems #1

    As most of you know that many of these functions that we attend are at night. When we wear our helmets and with low light levels, we are blind.

    I have been thinking of using a very light tinted visor, mounting it permantly to helmet, then layering a second visor(same tint as the permanant visor) on the inside of the helmet. This second tinted visor would darken the visor and would be removeable.

    So during daytime functions, i would have a double visor, then at night i would remove the inner visor, resulting in better vision.

    I don't really have any problems seeing at night with my dark green visor.

    I have a smoked acyllic visor in mine with black window tinting on the inside... can't see ANYTHING going in...NOTHING but I can see just fine out. I've worn it at night, in clubs, conventions, etc...never really had a problem with vision.

    On my old DP'95, I mounted my visor from the front, onto three Velcro braces. Originally, I did this in order to have a removeable visor for future helmet repaints. However, I toyed with the idea of making a second, clear visor specifically for nighttime activities. I never really used the idea, since my dark visor was also light enough for me to see in the dark.

    If you use the front-mount method, there's an idea for you...

    My green visor works great! I walked around trick or treating with some kids and had no problems.
