Life is Good!
I am just curious ? and if not how often do you actually use them ?
I've ridden without them once, coming back from a track day last year, and won't do it again.I take them off. I have long arms and no matter how I adjust them all I can see are my elbows. I don't trust them, I'd rather shoulder check and see everything firsthand and not as a reflection that I can misenterpret. That and they're fuckin ugly.....
BWWWHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHHAHAHAHAI would love to have the helmut that has a rearview mirror built in. Has anyone put one of these helmuts on or seen where they are sold?
I heard some people taking their mirrors off and putting a dentist's mirror on it just so there bike is legal! :laughing
ya,,make sure whoever is following stops when you stop and if you think they're not gonna stop(looking in your mirrors),then you move to avoid them....mirrors save lives...!!!I've ridden without them once, coming back from a track day last year, and won't do it again.
Most bike mirrors require you to tuck your arms in when checking back, and they in no way negate doing a shoulder check. I find them most helpful when slowing down so I can see if the people behind are paying attention and slowing down as well.
I'd keep anything that increases your awareness.
Yeah, good call man....weed and motorbike riding don't mix!When I was a mechanic full time, I would limit test drives to local short ones if the bike had no mirrors and/or no signals.
Sure, sometimes they're elbow checkers, but sometimes they let me know what retards are behind me. Also, easier to see if the guy behind me has gone into the weeds!
