I have been wearing bifocals for some years now and one thing that I have found is that it can be quite difficult to find a pair that fit well and work as they are meant to. The issue with bifocals is that they have to fit properly so that you can see properly at various distances.
They also need to be made in such a way that the line between the two lenses is not going to interfere with your vision. So if it’s so difficult to find quality of bifocals for my everyday glasses, can you imagine the problems I encountered when I looking for bifocal riding glasses?
To be clear, bifocal riding glasses are not intended to take the place of prescription eye wear. In actual fact, the main part of the lens in a pair of bifocal riding glasses won’t have any magnification at all. It is only the bottom part of the lens that has the magnification and this is so that reading the instrument gauges will be easier for you. The problem with bifocal riding glasses is that they could hamper your vision when you are riding if they have not been made properly.
This is not ideal when travelling along on your motorcycle at sixty miles per hour.
Thankfully, I found a fabulous pair of bifocal riding glasses made by eyeQusa. I came across this brand before on the Online Biker Shop website. EyeQusa is well known for providing top quality biker products at reasonable prices. I am really pleased with my purchase. My only regret is that I bought them from my local bike shop instead of the Online Biker Shop.
The prices are much more competitive at the Online Biker Shop and they don’t charge any shipping for United States delivery addresses so I would not have had to worry about that. Oh well, there’s always next time. I will make sure to use them the next time I buy some riding glasses. I may even decide to buy a helmet cover and a few embroidered patches to go along with my order.

I was only eighteen years of age when I got my first bike. The bike had a beefed up engine, a custom dual chrome exhaust and was a 1977 Honda 550 Four. My older brother was also a rider at the time, having chosen a brand-new Yamaha as his preferred mode of transportation. Right off the bat I was conflicted as to whether or not to use a full face shield or an open helmet with riding classes. My older brother wore a helmet with a full shield while the helmet that came with my bike had a half shield.
I was left with the choice of buying a new helmet that had a full face shield or buy one without any shield and wear a pair of riding glasses; for the latter I would have to take my chances with any bugs I encountered. This is something that I haggled back and forth with. I really didn’t want to stick with a half shield I had because I figured they were for old people.
But I also had the problem of finding a couple of hundred dollars for a brand new good quality helmet because that was what they cost in those days. But then my brother did something that made the choice easy.
He was riding from Fort Hood, Texas to our home in New York and had bought a full front fairing in order to make things easier for himself. But once he was home for couple of months he decided he no longer wanted it. So he opted to put it on my bike. Despite the fact that it could not be considered very manly, I really did love it!
Not only did I stay warmer when the temperature began to drop, but it solved my dilemma. The upper portion of the fairing was just high enough to keep the bugs from hitting me in the face, yet not so high that it interfered with the “wind blowing through your hair” sensation.
What I did with my helmet was to remove the half shield and just bought a pair of cool riding glasses. And 28 years later, I still have the very same riding glasses! Can you imagine that from a pair of riding glasses?
