Loving the RGV, had one back in the 90s and is was mental.Chucked some foamy water at the 1290R then lashed on some Motul shine and go, and fired up the smoker for 15 minutes (I will refit the fairings and get it on the road this summer)..
Be interested to see how you get on with them.
I had some handlebar end mirrors on my old Fireblade and I just couldn’t get used to them at all.
Lovely bike btw.
I keep looking at them for hacking around country lanes.
They look good, as least they don't look as daft as when people have bar end mirrors hanging downwards - these are nice and hidden away.Fitted some Stealth Mirrors that came in from the US. Bit of a trial to see if I like them really. Initial thoughts are it will take a little to get used to...
It's hard not to agree with Diddums.
I did try the bar end mirrors on my Blade which were a present from a mate, but it only reinforced that there's a reason why every single manufacturer puts them where they do, and that's because it's the optimal position.
That's just my opinion and preference, and not a dig at anyone who relocates them.
I was at a track day earlier in the week and one of the guys there had a rear view camera on his bike. It was wired into a small 8”-ish screen attached to the bars. Intriguing application but with the wide field of view on a small screen I wasn’t convinced it was suitable for situational awareness.I'm amazed no one's come up with a camera system tbh. We've got those clip on mirrors for cars with a little camera at the back, they're fantastic, if someone made something like that for bikes I'd be all over it like a rash. Glare could be a problem though.
