Mirror Extenders, wow.

Added a new set of Rick's mirror extenders. Rode in to work this morning. Without thinking about the extenders, i noticed my bike was a lot quieter. I could actually hear the engine. I thought maybe i was going deaf or something, but it was because the wind hitting my helmet was reduced significantly.

Also the head buffeting i had, which was very slight on this bike, was also gone. What a great add-on. Highly recommended.

I was also thinking maybe changing to a different type of mirror would achieve the same effect. A set of mirrors with a longer arm for example, or even bar end mirrors.

Most likely with any of these changes, if the bike is dumped the mirrors will be toast, so keep that in mind. If your still using the stock mirrors, give this a try. The extenders where not very expensive. I also added a camera ball mount. Looks real nice.
