^ that is the worst option btw...

I would recommend trying some of the helmet no fog solutions... I'm at work and I don't remember what the solution I use is called, but all it takes is like one wipe down every week or two and it'll prevent my visor from fogging up.

Wha?

The Harley boys said I was afraid of bugs for using a shield. Even in the Winter.

WebBikeWorld has done lots of reviews and comparisons on AntiFog treatments:

http://www.webbikeworld.com/r2/motor...son-review.htm

On a side note, I have found the Bell Star faceshields have a pretty effective anti-fog treatment on them, I rarely have any fogging issues when moving, and even at a stop at most I just have to crack the visor just slightly (Bell even has a small lever on the helmet for just that purpose) to clear the shield.

I'm pretty sure I know why my Shark doesn't fog, to many holes. I don't know why it didn't bother me as much last year but it was cold in the helmet this morning. I'm gonna use my Arai and pinlock helmet next time.

If you have an Arai helmet, they make a double pane faceshield that many snowmobilers use that seems to be pretty resistant to fogging.

For that much money you can just about get a brand new HJC CL17, a good rated helmet, that comes with the pin lock system.

For those of you that haven't tried the pin lock system. I know it's been said before, but it is simply amazing. Does not fog at all. No need to reapply anything. No need to crack open the shield in cold weather. Installs or uninstalls in seconds. And the option of using tinted inserts.

I discovered last winter...lemon pledge. I clean the inside and outside of my visor with it and no more fogging! According to the internet, only the lemon one works. You still get condensation on the shield, but it does not fog up (for me) btw...scorpion exo 1000

I rode with a Nolan N85 full-face in 2013 that had a pin-lock anti-fog lens and it worked extremely well. I do not recall having any fogging whatsoever. As far as I am concerned, its a mandatory feature for any future helmet purchase. I clean my face shield and anti-fog lens with ammonia-free cleaner and always use microfiber cloths, works like a charm.

I tried several coatings, sprays etc over the years. Then I tried the pinlock system and have never looked back. A little pricey but if you want something that flat out works then the pinlock is it. I have a tinted and clear pinlock and love them.

I used my Arai the other day but forgot to put the pinlock insert in. More importantly there are exit vents in the rear of the Signet Q helmet that cannot be closed and at 15 degree Fahrenheit if was cold as hell in there.

Fogging was a problem too but it took a back seat to the cold.

Purchased a Pinlock shield and lens from Revzilla after reading this post and I can't say how unbelievably freakin' impressed I am with it. Lid now stays down with no fog over entire 37 mile one-way commute. Booyah!

Congrats jrbuie!

I finally found mine after rearranging my garage. Booya!

Also got the flat screen mounted on the wall in the garage last night. Double booya! Now I just need cable, all I get is a few local channels with rabbit ears.

Duct tape closes vents well.
