    Make sure the visor or goggles you choose meet the Australian Standard 1609: 1981, and:


    -are light in colour - you'll be less likely to be hit by another vehicle if you can be seen
    -fits comfortably when you're on your motorcycle - not too tight or too loose
    -protects your knees, hips, elbows, shoulders and legs and will cover you against continued rubbing against your body, for at least four seconds - your legs are most at risk
    -is made specifically for motorcycle use - tough, abrasion-resistant leather or synthetics
    -has smooth, slippery exterior surfaces without a lot of pockets, buckles or straps which could catch on your motorcycle or other surrounding objects
    -has few joins and seams that can burst open when you hit the road or find yourself sliding along it
    -has lining with a high melting point that will not burn or melt onto your skin if you slide on the bitumen.

    Other than they say to wear light colors, but the model in the photo is wearing all black, I'm not seeing anything that really jumps out at me.

    Oh, Chip. Read it carefully and relate it to the heading.

    Umm, they have an indention problem, and placed a bunch of clothing-related tips under eye protection heading?

    Yep, that's as close as I got. Seems like proof reading is a dying art.
