Goggles, no glasses, no goggles, no ...

The post on keeping lens from fogging, has me wondering which people prefer riding with in the winter, goggles, or as I like, a pair of glasses. I picked a pair of Salsa clear lens glasses, and love them, they do fog, and I'll be trying some of the anti-fog methods mentioned. I have a pair of goggles, but it takes too long for them to clear here in MN. What's your opinion?

I wear aero looking safety glasses (free from work) because I have them and they seem to do the job so far. I might look at buying some goggles for when it gets colder.

I've just been sticking with my glasses. They don't fog up very much unless I completely stop. I usually just pull them down to the end of my nose when I pull up to stop. THat usually keeps them from completely fogging and it lets me see over them while I'm waiting to get going again. I use clear lenses if it's going to get near dark or dark at all. During the days I've been using the yellow/amber lenses... mostly because it's been cloudy here. If I know it's going to be really sunny the entire ride, I'll go to the shades.

It doesn't get super cold here... worst I've ridden in is 25F. And as long as I kept moving the glasses didn't fog. If I were to ever try riding in colder temps... I would probably look into getting goggles.
