The state of Florida requires any person operating a motorcycle to wear eye protection, and for good reason.
One of the many variables that cannot be controlled when riding on the open road is any debris that may fly around. The smoothest of roads may still have tiny pebbles, and wind will always play a factor. You never know what other vehicles will kick around behind them, and flying bugs can also be very distracting if they are too close the face of a motorcycle rider.
Motorcycle eye gear comes in multiple different styles. There are glasses, goggles and some helmets even come with additional visors in the front to aid in eye protection. There is something to fit each style of motorcycle rider and definitely worth the investment.
