9. I’ll be home before dark

Tinted visors are great – during the day. What happens when you have that super cool, dark tinted visor at night? Well, that’s a whole different kettle of fish. Since carrying capacity is always an issue on a motorcycle, many riders mount a tank bag to their bike for pretty much the sole purpose of keeping a clear visor available. What about those folks who don’t have tank bags or saddlebags? Well, you can carry a backpack or put the spare shield inside a sock and carry it inside your jacket around the side of your waist, but that can be a real drag. Or you can simply tell yourself you won’t need a clear visor because you’ll be home long before dark. What could go wrong?
