Same deal, Full face with either clear or sun glasses so I can flip the shield if I want.Well there are a million combinations. I use a full helmet with eye protection (safety glasses or safety sunglasses). That way I can pop the visor open (like if it fogs up or when it's warm) without getting beaned in the eyeball by a bug.
I've got the tall shield too. It's rare, but I do get a splat of a bug that flies juuust right and hits my visor/sunglasses. It rarely ever happens, but it happens enough for me to warrant wearing SOMETHING over my eyes.I wear a variety but minimum is a 1/2 helmet with safety sunglasses all the way to my full face. I always have sunglasses in my saddle bags if I want to run visor up.
Then again, I have the LT with windshield and am short so I am not as concerned about eye impact protection as those taller and/or without shields.
OK Comanche!!My protection and insurance is a locking front fork shotgun tube with a Mossberg 930 inside of it and my dual shoulder strapped 1911A1's. Not kidding. This is Arizona so we can roll that way.
As for "riding gear" it depends on where I'm at and where I'm going.

The biggest problem though, is dust and small particles and things getting in your eyes!
PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!
But, that shotgun tube is something I would like to see!
Think I could fit my SKS in there???!
I would like to find a way to take my long guns to the range; while on my bike.
I am going to have to check out those new accessories; I didn't see ANYTHING like that when I was outfitting my SKS.Scott,
I had a friend CNC an adjustable lateral mount that adapts to and fastens to the top tree area of a motorcycle, ATV/Quad for a BSR ELS-300 with inserts that I picked up at an auction. That way the shotgun or rifle can be mounted in the same plane and direction as the handlebars as well as balanced there so handling and steering are NOT affected. Of course, since my tube was used I also had to make a few minor mods to it so it would fit my 930.
This "tube" as I call mine (which is really a multi-weapon locking rack system that complies with the law) might fit your SKS so I did you a favor and called the company to see if there is an "insert" that adapts specifically for your SKS so all you have to do is mount it to your bike in the way that suits you. The base mount of the rack can be mounted to a flat or rounded surface. I'll let you know what I find out from that company as soon as they call me back.
The SKS Babe is an Optional Accessory.
Roger that, Scott. The CNC-machined mount can be made to fit any vertical or horizontal application and whether round or flat surface. I'll ask my friend to see if we can find a ride like yours around to test it on. It will be at least a few weeks to see what we can come up with. Even if I had to fab and weld a mount I bet I could come up with something to work for you. Besides, the design of the tree mount system is mine anyway and my friend just did the machining at his shop.I am going to have to check out those new accessories; I didn't see ANYTHING like that when I was outfitting my SKS.
With the fairing on my VV; I don't think it would work with the bike, even if the SKS fit.
It is about an hour drive to my preferred range; taking the bike would be nice.
