“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

D.I.Y - Getting the fog out of the visor

A fogging up visor is the biggest nemesis of a free spirited motorcyclist during winters and every now and then a motorcyclist tries to trump this nemesis in his or her own ways with varying degrees of success. 

What I present below is a D.I.Y which works with great degree of quirky scientific frustration rather than gleeful precision of craftsmanship. 

So here it goes - 

1) Take the visor out and clean it, like squeaky clean it. 

2) Now think about it as to why does the visor get so fogged during the winters when you are riding the bike (obviously you can have the helmet on even while not riding your motorcycle, but then you would be branded with very specific sets of labels which you might not like). Turns out that when we are riding our motorcycles during winters, due to the wind chill and the chill of the air we are "blasting" through, the temperature on the outside of the visor is marginally less than the inside of the visor, which is kept relatively warm by our (fresh or otherwise) breath and hence the condensation. 

3) So provide an outlet for the warm breath to escape (which we generally do by keeping the lid open just a wee bit) and the condensation comes down to manageable levels. So that's the basic principle of this D.I.Y - provide an outlet for the warm breath to escape and cold air to come in and thus balance out the temperature both inside and outside of the visor to some extent and thus reducing the fogging to a larger extent. 

4) This is achieved by drilling 3 holes at the bottom of the Visor just below the breath cap under your nose, and two holes around the top of the visor just above your eye brow area (so that the cold air gushing in doesn't freeze your eye balls off!!

That's all that's to this D.I.Y. Really!! 

Put the visor and blast off to your two wheel riding pleasure understanding that and reaffirmed on seeing that the in visor fogging has reduced by as much as 80%. On a stand still, the fogging happens a bit more because now there's not much cold air rushing in. 

Happy riding fellas.
