Been meaning to ask what mirrors actually let you see whats behind you. All I can see with the stock mirrors is my elbows. Maybe its because I'm tall with spider monkey arms.

Please no hundred dollar plus mirrors.

I just tuck my elbows in...


PLUS 1 on :+1:tucking those elbows,



your mirrors will let you see behind you, you have to adjust them correctly, then tuck your elbow to get a wider view,

or try these,

ahhh i cant see when i put my hands over my eyes!!!!

-move your hands

ahh there thats a lot better!

head check, move your arms, move your body whatever it is that you have to do.

youre riding a motorcycle, not riding in the back of a cadillac
meaning its not all comfy, gotta do some work and moving around sometimes

:+1: I know what the hell.

a simple and cheap alternative is move your head slightly to the left or right and you'll be able to see what ever you need to. it's really not a big deal.

I had same problem took 20 times it seemed like just to get it right, and everytime you think you got it you get going and damn cant see. Keep adjusting you'll eventually get it.
