Are you concerned with wind or rain?
I bought a pair of cheap ($39) helmets with full flip down clear sheilds for those occasional rain shower.....work great!!!

You might try safety glasses that are tinted. I have had good luck with the gllasses from Sam's club, $25 per dozen they keep the wind out of my eyes and at the price I keep several pairs on board for friends etc. Just a thought

I'm concerned about the wind. My tired of having my sunglasses embedded into my skull @ anything above 70mph.

Go web searching for sunglasses under the name of "guard dogs" these are a cross between sunglasses and goggles

I use corrective glasses and needed something that would work with them. Just went to a motorcycle shop and found something that would fit over my glasses, Scotts with a mild tint worked for me...
