I bought a thin neoprene hood from a bicylce shop, (Running stores sell the same stuff) fits nice and snug, keeps your head and neck warm and you can manipulate the face opening to keep your nose and mouth open or covered to vent your breath down and keep the fog off. They are pretty inexpensive and quite comfortable.

I use this: http://www.helmetharbor.com/Products/ProductDetails.cfm/ProductID/69861

better picture: http://www.1tail.com/sa/p/Respro_Foggy_Mask_-_Anti_Fog_Helmet_Mask.htm

to deflect the breath, and this for the visor: http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___83081

and this stuff is bomb too:http://www.zooke.com/

I've found that those full face neoprene masks still direct air up and fog up my visor, but I'm not sure if you'll be riding in the temperatures I've ridden in, so you should prolly be OK with just the foggy...

Also, if you keep your face shield clean, inside and out (use dish soap and warm water with my hands (no scoth brite or rags), to wash it off, and I usually don't need the cat crap....

well mine came with a coat of the stuff already on it and i think it works well..one problem is my helmet has a bulit in sunglesses visor aswell which doesnt have it on so that fogs up when i use that, but other than that its pretty good. just dont clean it once its on with anything other than hot soapy water.

I did a test one day on an old arai helmet I had. I used to scuba dive alot and snorkel constantly and we have this stuff for our masks...http://scubagear.stores.yahoo.net/028052.html

I wanted to see if it would work on my helmet when I had my enduro 125. I just sprayed it on, rubbed it in and let it dry. I never once had fog in my helmet again, and it got in the teens in louisiana where I was at the time. And for $5 you cant beat that.

that pin lock stuff looks awesome, but I think the foggy and zooke would be your best "cheap solution".

Breathing downward works, but at some point it just gets too cold to really work effectively anymore...

I just fold up a bandana throw it over my face, tie it up, throw the helmet on a ride. Some days I still have issues but I just flip open my visor air vent to clear it. It was only one whole dollar for it at Walmart and it keep my neck warm. O yea plus 6 cents sales tax!

I didnt feel like reading all of that, but when I went to get my new helmet at this place, one of the dudes there said take a dryer sheet and rub it lightly on the inside of your shield and he said that works. No clue why but.... I personally havent tried it yet but worth a shot.

Wow, you are crazy and must have great confidence in your driving ability to be out in this shit. I bet you get some crazy looks when pulling into a gas station on days like this. Ride safe man.

Thanks xthirce, it's more a matter of necessity. I only own a motorcycle, and this will be my third winter in a row riding. The beautiful part about it is that when it's like that, there are so few cars on the road, and most of the four wheelers are so cautious, that you almost have the whole road to yourself... And I never see the looks, or hear the shouts, because I'm too busy concentrating on trying to find the dry spots, braking accordingly, etc...
