just like to relate to you an incident that happened to me ,and could happen to you ,if you have a shiny bike (david nimrod one step back ).
on travelling towards epping the other day ,the sun was low ,at a wild guess 37 degrees.
when suddenly a shaft of sunlight ,just like the pink floyd cover ,shot through the trees , hit the very very ,shiny brake master cylinder, and shot into my eye ,resulting in CHROME EYE, and myself nearly riding into a rather buxom lady on a bicycle .
i managed to recover and continue my ride by squinting slightly to one side .
the morale is DECHROME OR RIDE IN SUNGLASSES
by for now ...dave

Why the hell were you not wearing sunglasses anyway? You were on a Harley dammit! Everyone thinks I'm trying to look cool wearing sunglasses whatever the conditions. I'm not...I'm embarassed!

Go for it, take a picture of you wearing them and post it on here. We could have a poll as to which side of dudeness you are on and whether it's the right one for Harley riding :D
