Thanks to everyone for their replies. All gratefully received.
I have had some glasses from Wickes suggested which I'll try but I also just bought some Ess V12 goggles from ebay that were recommended on the KTM forum.
The annoying thing is that Arai are actually too generous with their gap for glasses arms so there is no grip.

Expensive but I've used Oakley Wind Jacket for 5-6 years for both mountain-biking and trail/adventure riding. Worn with a variety of helmet makes and had no issues.

Davida do proper glasses-style goggles which can be used with interchangeable arms/strap/lenses, for around £40.

I've got the army Ess goggles on the way and will be getting some cheapo padded safety glasses over the weekend.
I've got Oakley sunglasses but they would be expensive to get clear lenses and I would be scared of trashing them.
Will have a look at Davida though.
Thanks one and all.

Shoot, beaten to it, another recommendation for the ESS military glasses, I use the ICE, very comfortable and they've out lasted any I've previously tried wearing a helmet.

Ess V12's arrived this morning and they seem ideal.
Nowhere near as big as mx googled and good field of view.
No opportunity to ride with them for a few days but so far I'm impressed.

Most of time people get issue with sunglasses after wearing them a long time. Even I have spectacle that is three years old. Now I’m having issue with it. It gets lose after a while. I’m thinking to have a new pair of party sunglasses. If anyone has issue and got its fixed permanently then please let know. Thanks.
