Rich -- Thanks so much for posting this! I popped off the visor and figured a 3/4 or 1" diameter felt pad would work. Ran down to my local Ace Hardware and picked up a 12 pack for three bucks. I put two on each side, one on top of the other, to build it up as you described. I was worried that remounting the visor would be difficult, but it reinstalled just fine.

My visor stays where I put it up to about 55mph now, and I couldn't be happier!
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
