so what's the deal with Iridium Visors. i haven't seen one up close and personal nor have i tried one yet, but i'm curious... other than looking cool, do they serve any useful purpose? recommended? advantages? disadvantages?

blocks sun - same idea as tinted - good for sun, cant see shit at night - looks cool. looking cool is what shits all about. If you really wanna look cool though don't wear a helmet at all....gel your hair up into a froc and pick up ladies at stop lights
they scratch when a piece of lint touches it
They look cool. Functions same as a tinted visor. They are cool.
I was going to get one, but I opted for the dark smoke instead. The 'mirror' visors are about $80, whereas a traditional one is $30. Going through a few visors a year, I opted for the cheaper one.
.....and they add about +10HP
I haven't scratched mine. Just clean it and store it carefully.

I know a guy who ran his iridium visor under running hot water to get the bugs off. It took off more than the bugs so DO NOT DO THAT!

No!!! 12HP for 1000cc bikes :laughing :laughing :laughing

I have one. It's scratched now. Not keen on replacing it. After trying it, I found I don't like it that much except during the times when the sun is low in the sky.
Looking cool is way more important that functionality.

PS - I heard its 14 HP
