Okay, so I just got a VTX T after 20 years of not owning my own ride. So now I finally have a VTX.

As the wind buffets my head at 50 MPH plus (have the stock windscreen) my glasses wiggle enough to where my vision appears like I'm sitting on a vibrating back massage pad. Adding pressure to the glasses frame by pushing them flat against my face or scrunching up my nose gets rid of their problem, but eventually the frames slip away from my face or I get tired of scrunching my nose.

My carpool partner has a VTX as well - and wears glasses - but he says he doesn't have this problem. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this problem and what you did to fix it.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Answer : Super Glue works every time :thumbup:

Try moving the screen either slightly up or down, sometimes that's all it takes.

I wear glasses and cannot ride without a face shield. My glasses move around so much I can't see a thing. I've got a taller windshield on order, if it will ever get here, and I'm hoping that will help. Other than that, I bought some 'fit-over' sunglasses from Walmart that I hope will help but it's been raining for two days and haven't had a chance to test them out.

Greetin's tbstout2,

It sounds like your getting a face full of wind...Try putting your hand about chest high when at a steady speed. I did this and found most of the air was coming from underneath my shield. So I did the only thing a man with three kids can do and made myself some lowers...Check out Crap Mods and you'll find out what I'm talking about.. Good luck and hope to see you around. Check out bulldogs party-lot of great folks in the area.

I wear shades with foam around the perimeter and the little adjustable band that attaches to the earpieces. Works fine!

Put on some LOWERS - this will eliminate the head buffetting.

:agree:+1 on the lowers. I haven't eliminated it completely but it's very close to gone (still need to play with placement - I have memphis shades lowers).

Weird

I have been wearing glasses for 43 years and riding for 36 on every type of bike imaginable without that problem. Must be the wrap around bows I use.

+1 on National Cycle 2 Up Shield. I also have the lowers and almost all buffeting is gone.

I just ordered a set of lowers. I'll also try a different helmet other than the Full Face Shoie.

Thanks for all the input. See ya on the roads.

Lowers won't do ****. Save yourself a bunch of $ and buy a set of goggles that fit over your glasses or a set of goggles that integrate your glassesnojoke
