    i think the mirrors might be like the HId thing if it was fitted with them originally they must be working etc

    ....Which brings us full circle to Reevu. No mirrors, no blind spot, and get through tiny gaps without clouting car mirrors.

    I'd feel naked without mirrors,even if I don't rely on them it's good to have them,gotta be the daftest thing ever not to have any at all

    The KTM was so easy to filter through without mirrors, I do admit I touched mirrors with a white VAN once. :p On the KTM there was no point in having them, absolute garbage... Hopefully the tomok's are better, I wonder if Clovis has put his on. (A picture would be nice :p)

    I think no mirrors would make some better riders. Force them to do proper shoulder checks.
