I have the amber and they work great at dusk, But at night they dont let see much except the lights on cars, I wear clear classes at night. I just ordered clear bikersfreind glasses and another set of tinted ones, I think they fit me great and you cant beat the $15 price. The only thing I dont like is they look a little big on my face without having a helmet on, Look great with a helmet.

I've got 2 pair, the smoked & yellow lensed ones. Great glasses with no problems at all. You really can't beat them for the price!

Ian's a great guy! My two pair have been beyond reproach!

Hey Tekman, that's what I call good service! Much better than another certain seller on ebay that recently posted here....I won't mention names, no point in getting that going again. I'll come over to your website and check out what you got, I need another set of glasses.

I want some of those new fangled glasses where the tint changes depending on how bright it is outside. I don't like having an 2nd pair of glasses in the saddlebag- even in a case, the lenses get scratched and the hinge screws vibrate out. Does anyone know of some good photo sensetive riding glasses?

I've got one clear & one smoke and I think they are a great buy. Plan to buy again but these don't seem to break or wear out.
