The only time it sucks is when I'm riding with a bunch of you FFs down dusty roads...get little mud puddles in my eyes . And that starts making things uncomfortable. And I can only do it for so long. At some point I have to quit or get out front. I guess for those of ya who wear goggles, that's not a problem, but I don't like my offroad helmet near as much as my Shoei RF1000. Maybe it's time to drop some coin on a real DS helmet and good goggles...might make all the difference. Anybody else work around contacts?
Lasik in 1999. Had only worn contacts (never glasses) since (uh, ummm...) 1984. So which one of you FF's was born around then...? Only time my contacts bothered me was when I was a big water skiier. Not really a good mix there.
Have been thinking about goggles, but it sure seems like they'd be hot on a long days ride. I wore them as a kid, but had an open face helmet back then. Like this (although this is Bob Hannah).

intro

Just wanted to introduce myself. Been in the area for about 6 months and just getting back into riding again. I will soon have a '01 Super Sherpa to ride and tinker with. First time with a DS as I've only small ridden dirt bikes a few years back. I'll be going to the MSF course soon to become legal. Looking forward to getting out and meeting some good folks to ride with.

Welcome ggr12. Joyous are those who just got bumped up the queue for our next "crash the noob" ride.

Not that we would actually do that, mind you.

It just happens.
