Pinlocks are a drag to swap in and out, and i could do without the extra visual clutter in fog-free weather, so for the one helmet I used to use one in I simply bought a spare visor, as it was much easer to swap visors. Still that helmet (Nolan N43) had such a huge vertical eyeport that I was spoiled by it and hated use the pinlock even when needed.

So I'm simply in the habit of flipping the visor up when stopped and down when or after i take off. It's nice in all weather.

But if you take off with your visor up, watch out for smokers: one day not long ago leaving the last light before the Burnside bridge going east some twat in an old pickup to my right flicked his ash out the window just as I came alongside. I'm here to tell you that 10-15mph is exactly the speed at which a clump of ash stays together long enough to hit you in the face and come apart there, ending up in your eyelashes and helmet lining instead of breaking up in the wind and blowing harmlessly past you.
