Sunglasses are now EU classified as Class 1 to 4 - look on the arms and they should have it printed on there. Class 1-3 are ok for driving but class 4 is not as they are very dark for snow sports etc. Does the visor have some sort of marking like this?
Brexit is like watching your library being burnt down by people who never learned to read.

Looks like it is printed on my glasses, but without my glasses I can't read it.

Not sure FrancisBarnett,it's a peice that actually attaches to the inside of the existing visor so easily removed for night riding,as long as you have a flat visor sized pocket in your leathers to put it in!!!!!Will go into the attic and try to find it.coeurdelion
