Helmets and glasses
In my recent trip from Los Angeles to Atlanta I used my brand new tri-focal glasses.
It was quite nice to be able to see the road, and without tilting my head I could see the dashboard, GPS, and V1 clearly.
That was the good part.
The ugly part started just a few miles from L.A. when my glasses were putting pressure on my head. At the first opportunity I pushed down the helmet padding to make room for the glasses just above and behind my ears.
That helped a little but the great discomfort was still there, even as I kept on compacting the padding.
It became really painful as the trip went on.
I am wondering what you guys are doing in order to wear glasses, sun or prescription, under your helmet.
I would think that helmet manufacturers would have addressed this by now, just as they finally pre-cut an area for speakers.
On day 5 of my trip I could have cried form the pain, but needed the visual GPS directions.
Any help and suggestions appreciated!
