I had the tinted strip on top of my shield, and that worked well most of the time. The worst area I ever experienced was coming back to San Diego in the late afternoon from the east on I-8. There are spots there where you get completely blinded with the sun right at highway level. First time I rode with my hand up trying to hold a finger or two right over the sun. After the first time, anytime I knew I was going to be hitting that area around sunset, I would put a small square of electrical tape right in the center of the tinted strip. That way I could tile my head down a little to position the Tape right over the sun, but still see on both sides of the tape. Worked very well. Only problem is that you have to inticipate the need, or keep it there all the time.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
