Calling all smart people...

I have a pair of American Optics aviator glasses. The classic kind with the straight ear pieces (bayonet) vs the wrap style. I want to cushion the ear pieces and also make them less slippy. Basically, some tubing or something soft (remember croakies? I'd love to have that stuff, but I don't need the neck strap and I'm cheap). Any ideas?

Oh, nevermind. I just read the title of the post.

Gray-haired riders don’t get that way from pure luck.

Go to a pharmacy-type place and look at those foam cushion things people use to protect their ears from oxygen tubes. They look like little foam tubes. If it's a place that does home delivery of oxygen, etc. they would probably have some around they'd just give you to try them out.

When I was flying Agcats we used white cloth tape but I like the Oxy mask thing.

Thanks guys. I thought about tape, but the oxygen mask thing is sounding good. Actually, all good ideas. One will work. Thanks!

Ha! Don't worry, there's plenty of room at the dumb kid's table with me and uh...me. We can shoot spitballs at Tom Schmitz.

This guy? Nope, he's in the back of the class making motorboat sounds and picking gum off the underside of the desk.
