Cool Some changes of appearance.

As some of you might remember I was debating on what style of mirrors I should go with.

Well, this is what I ended up doing.

Your opinions?

That's an interesting look. I have not seen that style before. Do they work good? I know with the stock mirrors I have to tuck my elbows in to see behind me.

Well stictly on appearance I would go with the original looking mirrors. Those round ones look silly. Don't know if your emphasis is on looks or functionality.

Yeah, they do look a bit silly lol but they actually function now!!! (although widen the bikes front a bit, which makes it harder to split the lane)
Don't have to move elbows anymore, just glance down.

Those weren't meant for sport bikes, so I had to adapt the connection part. It holds them in place well enough though.

Can you actually see behind you? I mean like directly behind you? Figured those mirrors sit a bit more out so you would probably get a wider angle.

Huh. Not sure how I feel about those but if you like 'em, that's all that matters I do like the flat black you've got going on.

Thanks guys!

I was pretty skeptic about the looks, but at the end I liked it.

Yes, I can see everything behind me and all around as well.

lol All black is actually a bed liner (you know they spray inside the trucks' beds). Originally wasn't my idea, previous owner had it done.
I was thinking about getting new fairings, but now... meh, she is my first : ) just let it be.

Some side pics. There is my new helmet also )))

Let me know if you need other pics, just got a new camera, so I like to play with it

Now that i got a better look you got the 3inch on there! You could see the world in them things! lol... Do you think the bed lining was a protective measure the previous owner took on the side fairings?
