Any idea about the cost for the same?

I've been using Woodland trekking shoes which are ankle length and plan on upgrading to something better later this year if budget allows and most certainly looking at an all-weather preferably "waterproof" solution.

For rain protection I would recommend the Sidi Way Mega Rain shoes... unfortunately not available here... these are my favorite rain shoes... their comfort rivals that of any Nike or Reebok sneakers... let me know your UK size... I will be traveling shortly... I see if I can pick up a bargain (you will be surprised by the bargains one can get)...
YES - it is fast! NO you can't ride it!!!

I wear a SparX lid, the noise isn't a problem (balaclava & ear-plugs chip in) but there is simply too much wind rushing in making my eyes watery.

I started noticing this after I went on a ride after some time and being used to a Car, it made it worse. I closed all the vents, but to no avail.

Any help?

The bike does not define you, but the actions you perform while on the bike do.

Now only God can help you, Cager. :P

Once a cager, always a cager.

Though on a serious note, do spend some money(actually a helluva lot of money) and get yourself a Moto GP helmet.

@sheel.

The air leak is probably from the bottom of the visor.
Stick a strip of sponge (SOFT sponge) such that the visor closes on it, it will solve your problem.

Doc, I queried across other various forums which I frequent (abroad) and was guided to this http://jp.shoei.com/....php?parts_id=7

I shall try your suggestion next time around & up-date.

I don't think those would help, in fact the breath deflectors would actually angle the air straight to your eyes IF the leak is what I suspect.

I think my soln would work, just see than the foam is thin else it wil stop the visor from closing properly.

HJC CS R1 Now available at AH Helmets for 4250/- and for 3800 with "Motoroids" or "SatyenPoojary" discount

All those who have been wanting to shift from LS2 or wanting to buy a new helmet this is a good international product at a neat price. At 75 dollars a peice on closeouts, getting it to India directly would be a tad more expensive and ofcourse with a HUGE time lag!
