Yup, bunch of squids. Traffic is slow and heavy, and they're playing grab-***... disaster in the making.

When I ride at night, I wear a pair of Oakley's I bought special for riding, clear polycarbonate lenses so I can have my visor up and still not risk being blinded for life by a rock or bug. That guy wrecked his bike and almost died for no reason other than "fresh air".

i've been hit in the eye with bugs probably a million times, i have a habit of riding visor up all the time. all you do is close that one eye, stay straight and slow down and look for a spot to pull over, never once swerved into someone. besides i never do congested city riding, there's no point since it's not fun at all.

**** man, first that guy is lucky as ****, second who rides with their visor all the way up without some from of eye protection. When I would ride, I would crack the visor at slow speed but if I got above 30 I would have to close it cause the force of the air through that open we mess with my eyes.

I can understand when sitting at a light or stop and go traffic but not riding like that, he is a dumbass who I hope learned his lesson.
