PostSubject: Wider Angle Mirror Upgrade   Wed Feb 07, 2018 4:41 pm

Looking for something else to do during the off months, and noticed the pitting of the chrome on the backs of my short mirrors while giving the bike a wash, so I figured something more stylish and a little wider so I could see around my own shoulders, would be a fitting project. Since nothing I found beyond plain mirrors weren't any longer/wider reach, I decided on these color coordinated extensions in red off the bat, to hopefully get me a little wider angle with the standard length fare offerings:

Riser extenders

Then, I couldn't decide what would look better or get me the best view, so I ordered one set of each of these, and figured I can switch between them as I liked, or just pick the best ones and stick with them...

Skeleton Skull Mirrors




I found the same skeleton hand ones everywhere online, but at this price difference, (saw some at 5 times that amount, that looked identical!), it's worth the wait for everything to come from China, as it's not like I'm not going out on the road anytime in the next couple weeks anyway. I got all of this for about $35, which is less than a lot of places wanted for one set of mirrors, and the reviews were decent on the lot, so I guess we'll see how things pan out in a couple weeks when they arrive. I'll post some pictures of both setups, and see what the arena of professional opinions thinks before I decide on the winner. It may just come down to the ones that let me see properly behind me...

Ooooh, this page has gone very groovy..... probably those very long links!

Those will look cool on your bike! 

When I looked at the image in the Ebay listing, all the measurements were backwards! Must be mirror image!!

Nah Mal; you're just on the wrong side of gravity! It IS an "image of mirrors" however! Not sure why one link from eBay was so much longer than the other? But the 2nd one seems to have vanished as well? I'll post it here again and see...

No worries Sim; figured it was something along those lines, seeing how the other two were properly tidied up. I was wondering why the page spread out and I couldn't see all the text on the screen! I understand just enough about computer systems to be dangerous and all, but know fuck all about code and editing stuff. Glad there are professionals around to correct for my ineptitude!  thumup

And Mal; Smoke is my dog's name. I'll try to get him in one of the pictures of the mirrors when I get them fitted! Literal Smoke and mirrors! msrke
