I can see out of my mirrors at any speed, my shifting is not noisy, and gas mileage varies I get mid 30's to low 40's. It is a great bike

No vibe in the mirrors.
No noise when shifting.
I get 45-50mpg, have 12,000 miles on the bike. That MPG is usually doing 75 -80 mph commuting to work on I-95 to DC with crazy people in cages. This is also with winter blend gas, I bought the bike just before winter. I hope my MPG goes up when we get the summer blend gas.
