Sideview Mirror

I've seen some people make comments about breaking side view mirrors. Do they mean breaking the glass or actually completely taking off the side view mirror? And wouldn't that hurt? I thought they were on there pretty tight.

i can personally show you some carbon fiber knuckles that were destroyed...

(but for me personally, replacing a $80 pair of gloves was worth knowing that he would look next time before cutting a motorcyclist off... not to mention that POWER MIRROR WITH HEATER cause i know that thing aint cheap on an Infinity)



you do this at your own risk...

Well I wasn't planning on doing it. I was just wondering, it seems like it might hurt, so I thought people were full of it or it was just the glass they were breaking.

depends on the vehicle... older model chevy's and fords have metal frame mirrors... new cars are just plastic with little motors inside...

either way it can suck pretty bad (cause you gotta make a mental note that you are going about 80 when you hit it..)

Besides, it's better to just pull in front of them, stand on your seat, do a backflip onto their hood, kick their windshield, flip them off, run over the roof, jump from the trunk back onto your rolling bike and ride away. It gets much more attention than mirror assault.
