Thumbs up Safety impact proper mirrors...


This weekend I installed some new mirrors on my Guzzi V7R. The stock ones never seemed to give me a clear rear view, and a fellow Goose rider suggested these, and I am very happy to have them. The new mirrors laterally extend about another inch out and are also a bit higher, and bit larger where it counts. The result: a new, at a glance rear ward view of all the cagers wanting to run me off 59 while I am doing 80 or so. Vibration is also less as they are plastic case and not chromed steel. I only spent about sixty bucks. On my old Kawi EX 500 I also installed mirror extensions with a similar result.

So, if you are having mirror and rear vision issues: spend the time trying to fix it. The safety uplift is very high.

I've gone with bar-ends. They seem to vibrate much less, and offer a great view behind the bike.
