Anti fog solution is not something you would normally check out before
going to the bike show, and it was an impressive demonstration.
Needless to say, they are scam artists, their web site is down and if you see these bums anywhere at Americade, Laconia, wherever you might go, kick 'em in the ass for me.
To the OP: Couldn't have put it better myself. I did try, though. lol Below is what I posted on a few other forums that I regularly participate in, after I went to the D.C. cycle show. (Spotted your post in a google search.)
>>So I saw this vendor booth at the Progressive motorcycle show for Blaze Anti-Fog stuff. The claim was that it cleans glasses and visors, and more importantly renders helmet visors fog-free. This is a problem for me in winter riding, so of course I was impressed by the prop display at the convention where they had a humidifier set up, held up a partially-treated visor over it and lo and behold, the treated half did not fog up.
$25 later I wandered away from the fast-talkin' salesman with their product kit.
Well I guess you can see where this is going. I got home and tried it out (simple spray on/rub off directions), and breathed on my visor. Fogged right up. Tried a second application and went riding. Fogged up every time I stopped. Tried the Blaze 'wax' on a pair of eyeglasses... didn't clean them, and in fact seemed to distort the lenses a little bit. (Yes, I applied it properly.)
Went on the company's website last week. No physical address. No names of company officers or salesmen. I emailed them through a contact link asking to return their product, no response. Tried going back on the website yesterday and today... went right to godaddy.com domain site. "Notice: This doman name expired on 1/26/12."
I'm not in a blind fury about losing 25 clams. Yes I value money, but it's not like I got "taken" for a week's salary or anything. Just thought I'd share my personal product review here in order to warn fellow riders, and also to ask whether anyone else has tried Blaze and agree or disagree.
Revisiting the issue -- just because it irks me when con artists take advantage of people -- some folks on other sites suggested I write to the promoters of the show. So I did. We'll see what they say. In case anyone else was interested, the email addresses are [email protected]

. They work for the promoter who organizes the Progressive cycle shows.
