    Hi all

    My names Syer and im a 43 year old father of 3 boys from the UK. Im an Engineer by trade, and my hobbies are anything mechanical and with an engine - but mainly motorcycles (Current ride below):

    Just starting to think about getting a couple of pairs of sunnies, and figured i really want some Oakleys.

    Im a big guy [6'3 and 210lbs] and need to look into something to 'compliment' - lol - my large physique !

    At the moment i like the look of the GasCans - and in this model i like the look of the Crystal Black frames, with Black Iridium lenses. Not sure if these are a 'general purpose' lense or not ? Or if the GasCan's are suitable for a larger face ?

    And advice for larger frames, and a general all purpose lense for my first pair appreciated..........

    Cheers.

    Gascan could be a little small you may want to try Pit Bull/Pit Boss .
    Love that Drz (back wheel bandit)

    Welcome: I think gascans would be too small on you. I m 6'2" 220 so around the same size. Hijinx would be perfect for you. I have the exact color combo crystal black/BI and they look great. Also Pitbulls and Monster Dogs would be good. In the current frames the Turbine, Offshoot, Fuelcells would all be good. The Fuel Cell is the closest to the gascan just a bigger version.

    Thanks for the really warm welcome all.

    Im searching for a pair of Fuel Cells to start me off then (I've have tried on a pair before - and they felt pretty good)

    What would be a great general purpose, day-to-day lense - bearing in mind its not always super-sunny here in the UK ? Is 'Black Iridium' lilkely to be too dark ?
