I took the M38A1 out for a spin today with the fancy new goggles.  They certainly do keep my eyes happy at speed, and with the windshield folded down I can achieve moderately higher speeds than without.

The only downside, in addition to my looking like an utter fool, is that they reduce my peripheral vision.  I can see left and right just fine, but to look down at the gauges I have to move my neck.  It's not a big deal, as the gauges don't tell me much of use, but it might take me a minute or two to realize that I had overheated the engine or broken the generator.
