I admit it is pretty cool looking at the crook of my elbows in my mirrors all the time. But sometimes I really like checking for authority figures and the such that may be behind me. Are there any solutions to this enigma?

Live with it, be creative, I do.

It's more of a machine than a boulevard vehicule.

Heard of shoulder checks? That's what I do

um no... I got good at pinching my elbows in momentarily over the years.

I'm generally not worried about them coming up from "behind" though. :rolleyes:

My 748 is the first bike I have owned in which I have left the mirrors on the bike. Though I'm starting to question if they have any purpose as I can simply glance back as I used too.

They really are in a useless position. Though if you pull the elbow in you can actually see what's behind you.

My cousin had them custom make mirrors for his R1 and the are to die for!!!
You can see everything and they don't distort! I will be getting them soon, but need to spend money elsewhere first! Let me know what you think! :cool:

I just move my elbow out of the way in addition to doing a head check. I rarely rely just on a mirror - in any vehicle.

Man this is a tuff thing to talk about....Bar end mirrors are not very practical considering you have to look down at the bars to use them and as well make for a wide profile! New mirrors that extend out past your elbow is thing in best case...but I'm waiting for the Reevue Product!http://www.reevu.com/index.asp

I'm interested in seeing what we're talking about in terms of weight and cost.
