I was coming up over a crest on the Monash freeway late in the afternoon and was blinded by sunlight.

As a rider still gaining experience, it was just a little unnerving having reduced visibility.

A visit to Peter Stevens was a must. One of the guys checked the part number for my RJay helmet and quoted $30 for a tinted visor. Do it.

It was a bit fiddly to install, great helmet but I’m sure it’s not as functional as a more expensive Shoei.
