Dedicated to the women who RIDE THEIR OWN motorcycles

I love simple solutions to big problems. And when you can't see through the face shield of your full face helmet because of fogging, that's a big problem. On a suggestion from a British rider who encounters some of the dreariest, wettest, and cold weather on her daily commute to work, I tried the FOG CITY FOG SHIELD. Described as a "unique visor appliqué" this would be different from the messy and smeary sprays I'd tried before.

I found them at (*update 3/15/04 - no longer available at Jireh Cycles), and they were a whopping $3.95! So I bought two, figuring if I managed to mess up installing it, I'd have a spare.

I shouldn't have worried. After removing my face shield and cleaning the inside of it with the provided alcohol pad, I lined up the FOG SHIELD using the calibrations on the shield, removed the strips covering the "special perimeter adhesive," and pressed it in place. No problems.

Essentially the FOG SHIELD is an "optically clear" film that adheres to the inside of your face shield that creates an air space between the two surfaces.

And it works! I have not been able to fog up the covered areas of the face shield. Cleans up easily with a cloth and household window cleaner.

I haven't tried to remove it, but at this point I see no need to. It's crystal clear, and I haven't noticed any problems with glare at night.

Simple solution. And it's inexpensive as well!

Thanks to Wendy for submitting this personal review. Wendy says, "I started riding at the tender age of 44, a mere 17 months ago. After spending a year running into things on a well-dropped Honda VLX 600, I now ride a Spirit 750. My alter ego rides a '79 Honda XL100s dualsport, to which I thank my fearlessness of gravel, dirt, and other road imperfections."
