Night Vision military
Riding your motorcycle at night brings along a whole set of other problems you don't have to deal with during daytime riding. The contrast between objects at night is greatly diminished, and that can be very dangerous.

Ask any 24 hour racer, be it cars or motorcycles, at Le Mans. Even on a track, you need to clearly see the differences between objects in the dark. Apart from riding with mil-spec night vision goggles, not too handy on a motorcycle, there's not much else you can do.

If you ride your motorcycle often at night, you'll know what I'm talking about. Putting flood lights on your bike is one way of seeing clearly, but I don't think oncoming traffic is going to appreciate it.

But there is an attractive solution....

Tag Heuer Squadra

Tag Heuer Open link in a new window, the folks who bring you expensive watches and owners of McLaren Formula One cars, have a nice, but expensive solution for those that ride a lot during the night.

Called the Tag Heuer Squadra Night Vision, the use a technique they call ophthalmic masks with universal nocturnal myopia to enhance the contrast of objects, thereby reducing eye fatigue.

Tag Heuer Squadra

The glasses have been worn by racers at the 24 of Le Mans, both car and motorcycles, so if it's good enough for them, it should be good enough for you. The frame is made out of titanium, with enough flexibility to fit under a helmet, and light enough not to be a bother.

Tag Heuer Squadra 3

As I said, it's not cheap, count about US$450.
