Not sure that's good really, mirrors better off than to small to see anything out off them, small indicators well most ride out poeple said they could not see me doing it.
Standard ones there waving me there still on, from the view of me in there mirrors!

I would rethink indicators really or use your arm for doing it plus good mirrors really in less your an owl.

Would also like to see some good pics of the bike, in less I missed them in the topic some where?

But remember Chimpy somethings make a good road bike, somethings make a good trackday bike.
Need to balance the cool and looks for a good road bike, small mirrors pointless.
Small indicators pointless too, as no one see you turning and you think they do.

oh my, are you trying to teach grandma to suck eggs dear?? I ride to work every day. I hand signal as well as using indicators. and usually eye contact with the driver i'm pulling in front of.

The mirrors are only to look out for pigs and other bikes coming up faster as this is my rideout bike. not a great deal else gonna be close behind me

that ok? Razz Razz Razz

PS you'll get lotsa pic and a vid Smile although there are quite a few in the thread if you look!! page 4 for the almosst finished ones

Chimpy lass, if you're going to put small indies on, please make sure they're bright LED ones so folk can see them.

I was at the back of a group ride out last year when all hell broke out in front of me 'front rider 'small oxford indies' was indicating right and the first anyone knew about it was when he braked' aaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh bikes going left and right of him but no one clipped him. Surprise surprise, after that he sat just infront of me at the back.

You're not Capt Scarlett 'indestructible' and Blade-Hog is only looking out for you.

I know this SB, and appreciate the concerns of you both Smile Bessie used to have the tiny indicators and I changed those to bigger because of said problem so don't worry, I'm very aware!

As for rideouts I tend to stay at the back and let the testosterone heads belt off in front Razz

I agree with blade-hog, mini ind are a waste of time, might as well take them off and don't run any, same for the mirrors.

I used the R6 with just a brake light for ages when it had the track fairing though summer.

Its just to make sure people can see what your up to. Smile
