ViciousCycle, I do not think the extenders will do the job, it is just 1 or 2 inches and I think I need a lot more. I also do not like the idea of making the bike that much wider with the mirrors.
About the other set of mirrors, they look nice, but do you think they will do the job? I think they will be only as good as OEM mirros + extenders.
CK_32, I am not sure how the lanes work over there, but I will explain how it works here:
The right lane, is for people driving slower, the left lane is for people driving faster. Most of the streets here have only 2 lanes. When there are more lanes (rarely), the same rules goes. The slow cars go on the right. Now, as there are only 2 lanes, what happens when you are on the left lane and there is someone who wants to go faster, they want to pass, so they will turn the lights on you, but as you can not see behind (they do not know that), they will horn on you, if you take too long to move, they will go to the right lane and pass you at 100000 miles per hour and go back to the left lane in front of you. So, shaking your head every 2 seconds will not work here as the speed difference from a slow vehicle to a fast vehicle could be 30~40~50~60 miles.
While some stuff works on some situations, just does not in some others.
Also, there are people who just can not turn their heads like that famous movie (the exorcist) in 2 seconds... lol
Probably we will not be able (in most situations) to avoid something coming from behind, but there are other situations that we could anticipate.
swan-rr5, I think you are right, it may not be in the right place, placing in the tank will kill the entire purpose of having it.
Thanks everyone for your comments!!
