Re: UK Tinted Visor law
The law has been around for a very long time, and many people have tried to change it.
I understand that you are allowed a 'mild tint' and there are other specific that you can have like a photochromatic one that lightens at night.
I think i got 20+ ticktes for dark visors in the UK in a ten year period, each time it was the same routine.
Its like 'race cans' and small number plates, cool as hell, but not worth the hassle, if they see you have a dark visor, or hear your can, or (fail to) see your small plate, they pull you, and it gives them an opportunity to give you a ticket for all the other things that you have that are wrong.....
If I ride in the UK, I stick to my Oakleys, and do not give anyone a reason to pull me over any more.
