    Exactly what I do with my System 6 Evo - just have to remember to push the comms mike out of the way first...

    I use glasses for driving only.
    I found with my first standard clear lens pair , that on my bike every time I hit a bump they slid down my nose.
    The next pair I bought 2 years later, I opted for Oakley flack jackets. They grip my head, so no more sliding down the nose. There is no frame at the bottom or sides, so visibility is fantastic.
    They slip on really easily, and I specced them with a grey lens rather than the brownish tinge, so can use them in any lighting condition
    Apart from night, where I change to my old clear lense pair.
    Not cheap at Ł350, but makes the difference between a safe clear view and not!

    In a Remote area apparently.

    ..... but my glasses ALWAYS stay on when donning and removing the helmet. The helmet liner stays fresher during the holiday as I rinse out the balaclava when it gets manky. The helmet lining also lasts longer.
    Yup, me too

    I usually wear contacts when riding. But on the occasions I wear my glasses and flip up helmet, instead of pulling the helmet vertically down on your head (which dislodges your glasses), try try looking into your helmet and rotate it on to your head, if you know what I mean. Works every time for me both on and off.
