“We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feelin’ free”““ Bob Seger, “Roll Me Away“

Bob Seger certainly said it right in “Roll Me Away”, his song about a day spent on his bike, there’s nothing quite like riding a motorcycle. We all know there’s that quintessential “free” feeling, coupled with feeling the wind rushing by you and the scenery a whirlwind blur as you ride by. Yet, we also know that enjoying a motorcycle means riding safely. Most states require riders to wear motorcycle helmets, but what about motorcycle sunglasses & goggles? The unthinkable can always happen, and you don’t want to see yourself down on the road after debris kicked up into your eye, obstructing your vision and causing an accident that otherwise could have been avoided.

Wearing motorcycle sunglasses will protect your eyes and keep you looking cool.

Peaceful Scenery and Peace of Mind

Riding a motorcycle stimulates all of our senses, so you want to be able to concentrate on riding and absorbing all the natural beauty of your surroundings, not adjusting your motorcycle sunglasses! Take a few minutes before you kick that bike into gear to adjust your motorcycle eyewear. Make sure your glasses or goggles are securely fastened and tight enough to stay on your face throughout your ride. Of course, you don’t want motorcycle goggles to detract from a great ride, fortunately, brands like Wiley-X, Bobster, and Smith Elite have put an emphasis on safety and design in their safety glasses’ craftsmanship.

A bug hitting you in the eye at 70 MPH is no picnic! Always wear your Motorcycle Eyewear.

Ride With Certainty

You ride a motorcycle with skill and precision, making it crucial to be able to easily see your bike’s instrument panel at just a quick glance. Many of our customers with motorcycles have reported that they prefer to use bifocal safety glasses, allowing them to see all the details of their bike’s instruments while also ensuring they’re meeting safety standards. These aren’t Grandpa’s bifocals, all of our bifocal safety glasses are state of the art and have that edgy look that is so “you” when you’re out on your bike.

Regular Care Is Key

Just as you regularly tune up your bike and keep that chrome sparkling like new, you’ll want to clean your lenses after each ride with a microfiber pouch to remove all those fine dirt particles. You can also use simple soap and water to remove any dirt but stay away from any cleaners that aren’t specifically marked for cleaning sunglasses or goggles. Don’t use window cleaning products, such as Windex, because they will break down and remove special lens coatings, such as anti-fog or anti-glare coatings.

Microfiber Pouch

Avoid lens scratches by using the inside of your microfiber pouch to wipe your glasses.
