Good info!

I like how the Iridiums look on the Xtreme's, but how are they at night? I don't want to get stuck at night with something impossible to see out of on. (dark tint)

I'm thinking Iridium Mirror

only bad thing about a ir is you gotta clean the bugs off EVERYTIME you stop or you will get spots with discoloration(sp) at least that was my experience. But I loved it and would get another and this was a suomy..

Personally I dont like riding at night with a tinted visor, it reduces visibilaty.

Well that's the thing, I drive to school in the day time so it's really bright. Then sometimes, like tonight, I go places on my bike where my clear shield is good.

I don't want to have to switch visors every time I wanna go out. Switching it out is a biotch in Suomy's

Cool idea, electrochromatic; but they don't go completely clear, do they?

I have more problems with bugs then anything

Like transitioning glasses? That would be nice, I've never seen it offered for Suomy though.
