Now that the daylight hours are starting to get shorter, I'm faced with a usual dilemma.
I leave for work around 6:30 p.m. but before I arrive the sun is setting, so that means smoked sunglasses into the sunset but then changing lenses on the way. I finally bit the bullet and went over today to Chaparral Motorsports (San Bernardino, CA) to get a pair of photochromic glasses.
They had the usual group of brands sitting on the shelf, costing between $120 to $160. I'd had pretty good luck with the Bobster "convertible" glasses, so I asked if they had any from that maker. They did, and so I jumped for them... cost was $36.
If you're thinking of possibly getting a pair of "transition" style lenses but don't want to spend a ton of cash, you might give these a try. I jumped on the super-slab and took it up to around 75 mph and had no trouble with slippage or any tendency to try become dislodged with side-to-side head checks. I rode about 50 miles around the area just doing errands and these Bobster glasses seem to work out fine.
Here's the link from Chaparral's online catalog but you may be able to find them through other sources as well:
