Default Oakley riding glasses....anyone?

Ok, so I'm in the market for some riding glasses, I usually ride with my sunglasses, I wear Oakley fives squared and I love my Oakley fit. I can't stand a pair of glasses that aren't comfortable and aren't my style. I am also the type of person that doesn't like to change what works and Oakley works for me. My question is do the Oakley riding glasses have the foam on the back of the frame to protect my eyes from dust, debris and wind? I haven't seen but a few pictures of their glasses but I'm not certain who to look to as a vendor to find what I want. Anyone help?

I don't have any experience with Oakley riding glasses, but I would recommend looking at Wiley-X (http://www.wileyx.com/MOTORCYCLE/index.aspx). I have a few pairs and love them. Look for their "Ballistic Certified" glasses and also the ones with "Removable Facial Cavity Seals." They supply our military with eye protection, and their motorcycle glasses have lens that exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity Impact Safety & Optical Standards.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

If you have Oakleys now don't you know if they come with foam or can get them with foam. I think your a fake

Fake??? WTF is that supposed to mean? I wear Oakley sunglasses everyday, I've never owned a pair of their riding glasses but I've done a bit more research and they do have what I'm looking for. It's called the wind jacket. Thanks for the smartass remark though, did it help you get your quota in for tbd day or do you have a few left on your agenda?

Been an Oakley guy for years. The Twenty works most of the time, but I have found the Military Version is the best riding/safety glasses. It is a lot like Wiley X military, but fit me a lot better. Never could get Wiley to "seal" around my face. I got mine from the Flea bay NIB for around $80 with case, cleaner, clear and gray lens, cloth and secure strap. Military grade shooting glasses, so no bug ain't gonna get thru. Be patient--deals are out there. They also make a HELO add on that seals to your face (made for rotary wing guys who deal with wind and dust)--do a search.

Just works better for me. I never could get the foam to work---always leaked air no matter what I did.

I use sunglasses style tinted safety glasses daytime, and if going any decent speed pull my WW1 Aviator flying goggles down from my helmet and over my sunnies, At night just the aviator goggles.
When used with a leather facemask if its cold and/or wet, they can fog up a bit if I'm not moving, cool once Im back on the move though.
