First thing is, don't look at the drops on the face shield, look past them. My wife hates it when I do this in the car, but I'm pretty used to it and generally just have the wipers on intermittent.
Second, there are gloves with a built-in wiper blade, generally on the left index, though some on the thumb. This can give you an intermittent wiper for the bike. I have a set that is my go-to for cold/damp riding, though my Rain gloves don't have it, just better water-proofing and faster drying as they're fabric rather than leather.
Third, there are some face shield treatments that can help by causing the rain to bead-up and roll off, like Rain-X for your car. Use one specified for face shields to avoid ruining the shield.
I would recommend using a Pin-Lock face shield if one is available for your helmet or a Fog City if not. Not fogging the shield (or having to keep the shield cracked to avoid fogging) makes a big difference in comfort and safety in rain riding.
Congrats on the new bike, great riding up that way!
