+1. Pet peeve of mine that many people ride with lenses that are much too dark - just look at all the Fire Iridium and similar lenses which are bluebird tints but which people are sporting in all kinds of conditions (presumably because the look cool).

For me, if I had to buy one I'd buy either the yellow or rose sensor. Bluebird doesn't bother me as much as white out conditions.

Rookie09 I'm looking at a pair of goggles that come with "foundation/sensor mirror" lenses. What conditions will these be good for? will they work for night riding too or will i need a different lens. What is better for night riding, yellow or clear?

hoodrat I really enjoy my rose tint for all around lenses.

Something amber (like the Oakley Persimmon/High Intensity Persimmon) is a pretty good all-around lens.

Lamps The more bright days the darker the lense you would get, but best would be something in the middle in an orange or light brown. Oakley persimmon is a good example.
