I saw an '06 today with no mirrors and it looked sexy as hell, only problem is that I use my mirrors regularly. Those of you who have had experience with them, can you tell me if the visibility is as good as the stock mirrors (not that theyre all that great anyway), and can you recommend a good set?

I took my mirrors off the other day to see how much i really use them and it drove me nuts not having them on there.
I ride with a bunch of cruisers so I am constantly looking behind me to see how far back they are, and the occasional look for a cop.

Thanks in advance...

You have to get used to them. I would at least put on a CRG bar end mirror. You can get everything from www.tobefast.com Actually, you can see pretty good out of it. The left side is all you need to do. Of course, nothing beats a look over the rear shoulder. You will need the CRG mirror and adaptor. I also put on a set of Greggs bar ends.

I rode Southern118's 06 R6 with bar end mirrors and though I liked the bike, I could not stand the mirrors. You couldn't see a damn thing through those tiny little mirrors. You couldn't give me a set.............

No problem. Here's a few of it. I still need to put on the black plastic rear cowl.

i love the no mirrors look from the side, but with the db puig somethin just looks funny to me. maybe i just gotta get used to it.

maybe it's just me, but i use my mirrors all the time. I usually make mental notes of what cages are around me and use the mirrors to look for fast moving vehicles that might wind up near me soon.
