maybe this stuff? http://www.reduxantifog.com/images/bottle_homepage.gif
hopefully the link works. Other than that I haven't got a clue, because I don't wear a lid. but the sunglasses do get fogged up at times.

I looked on my bottle of Rain-X Anti-Fog...NOT FOR USE ON PLASTICS unless noted by manufacturer. So I guess that's out.

Try washing the faceshield with dishwasher soap, rise it a little and dry it out with a paper tissue (very lightly) so as to leave a bit of the soap on the faceshield, it helps dimish the fogging a bit and it's almost free... works on my shoei...

Oh yeah, that time of year again. That chilly, cold feeling on the face is invigorating, it's a
good wake-up when driving to work at 7 AM. Have switched from a Full Face Helment
to a good quality Half Helmet just to get more fresh, crisp air flowing around my morning wakeing brain.

Been looking for an Anti-Fog wipe on cloth myself. Will have to checkout
Walmart.

Will be storing Lena this Winter and riding my KLR650 over the snow and
slush, but no, no ice whatsoever. There is an employee at the VA Hospital
here that rides his Gold Wing every day of the year, he must have some sort
of knack for riding on snow and ice. Studded MC tires are no longer available at Tire shops,
but some people stud their own tires. They may be still selling studded MC Tires in Canada,
will have to check into it.

I'd say put your feet out, but we know that doesn't work.

I like the cold on my face too, but when I have to go 10 miles at freeway speeds, I end up talking like I've been shooting up novocaine. For 30 minutes, at least.

Hey Mushu - good tip. I know the trick to most anti-fog products is not to clean the surface like you would normally - just leave a residue layer.

I used a version of THESE in my goggles when I played paintball.
The ones in the link are different in that there's also a gasket with them. The ones I used for goggles were just a clear laminate sheet that you applied on the inside of the lens using soapy water. Dried pretty clear when properly applied and worked great for no more fogging. I thought there was a similar plain laminate for face shields, but I can't seem to find one on the WWW.
There are probably some on ebay.
