Riding in the rain, visibility???

My weekend trip to NH was awesome! We traveled from NJ to NH on Fri, made a trip to ME on Sat, came home to NJ on Sunday. Did about 1000 miles in 3 days…I’ll have pics and vids posted soon.



The ride home Sunday was dotted with rain through NH and VT. The RC did great and my rain gear kept me dry. If it wasn’t for the reduced visibility the rain would have been a non-issue. Is there anything out there similar to rainX that works well on face shields? Or maybe even rainX works?

Aerostich sells something similar that you put on your thumb. I haven't tried it, so can't vouch for how it works though.

I use RainX and have for years with no problems. I actually look forward to it raining now!

RainX, Honda cleaner, or even pledge furniture polish all work well. Just apply with a rag as spraying directly to the shield might damage the tint. The rain drops will pass right off

Also try tilting your head side to side to further allow droplets to disperse off the visor
