Default Downside to this good weather.

Whilst i am enjoying getting out on my bike in this hot sunny weather, i am starting to hate the flies! Im out for no more than half an hour and my visor has a layer of flies across it!

Im assuming this is a problem for all you bikers??!! How to get round it? Ride slower....

Ride quicker! That solves everything.

I just clean and polish the visor several times during a rideout.

Wet wipes under my seat, also keep a couple tucked under the screen just in case that big sucker decides to head butt you at 100mph.

They are good for cleaning leathers too, but beware if you clean your visor with them and then go into rain you can get a nasty smeary visor.
