I have both (Oakley) lenses. I prefer clear for nighttime. I really only use my yellow for fog.

Clear all the way. Yellow is too distorting.

i agree, i use my yellow lenses for night riding because i don't have clear ones, they let through something like 85% of light so they still perform well, but riding with them off you definitely can see a little better. if you ride in fog at all i would definitely grab the yellow.
