    Trouble with off & on is they get wet & dirty quicker tho too!
    Carry a rag & tuck it behind your head light helps, they do take some getting use too but you will find it better in the long run.

    Yeah I can imagine they get stinking hanging there, might see if I can find some half about clip on ones not too dear just to try, and hopefully I'll get more and more used to them having the option then I'll get some decent ones! Cheers for the advice as always top boys cheers

    Whatever you get, stick some double glazed, vented anti mist lenses in - they help no end

    Quite expensive,  but no up there with the film star money that Airbrakes are cheers

    This was after a good old poke in the mush by a branch with saftey glasses . Bought a set of goggles the next week and forced myself to wear them , soon got used to the set up , like Wolfy says , keep some rag to hand . Plus I took a  roosted lump of rock  right between the eyes  last year , again , with glasses that would have given me a good cut , as it was i just got a scratch in the lens . So its worth persevering  Wink
