Thumbs up TriVision Glasses

Two thumbs up on BMW's TriVision glasses. They are superlight, fit within my helmet (though they do partially block my view when turning my head for lane changes), block all forms of UV light and are very clear unlike some much more expensive sunglasses. Atop that, they come with three interchangable lens (clear, amber and tinted) for various times of the day. At $75, not a bad deal.

2007 K1200R Sport w/ Leo Vince EvoII titanium slip-on. They say that moving sucks. I rather like it, when it's on my bike.

Been using these for a couple years now. They are good, except that the rubber ear pad fell off of mine and now they hurt my ear. Also had one of the little BMW Motorrad emblem fall out. Overall not bad, used them on several 12+ hour days (and two 1100 mile days) with no comfort problems until the ear pad fell out.

I carry the other lenses with me, but rarely make the switch. I have switched to yellow for a night ride or two.

TriVision Glasses

Rh Hall raised a good point about the yellow lensed glasses. In low light situations, these things are a real bonus. So on overcast and rainy days I get 'em on. They intensify the amount of ambient light into the eye. The bonus of this is twofold as far as I can tell. First you see images in your view ahead much more distinctively. Best of all; I find that the yellows allow me to identify roadway surface features with much more accuity under low light conditions. Seeing and reacting to surface conditions is one key to safe motorcycle operation.

Ride Safely,
