If you dont want the wopping great big round type on long stems, have a look at some of the mirrors you can get for scoots, I'm using ones off my lads Speedfight, till I can get some Ducati Hypermotard ones that fold into the handguard, daft crazy prices for them at the minute.

Aye lovely looking but too pricey, hopefully some chinese company will do a copy of them in the near future.

the ones patman had were koso wings iv had a pair myself they looked real good but went floppy in a few weeks with high speeds so your always adjusting them its a bit dangerous if im honest i spent more time adjusting them than i did concentrate on actually riding

does look better without but i agree its a lot safer to have em on or at least have one on there. i had to buy some more cos my instructor wernt happy i just had the one lol he kept making me shoulder check for a substitute.

needless to say iv got 2 on there now , chrome skeleton hands an there not bad at all handle the vibrations, so im ready for my lesson on monday now .

see how long they last i usually end up breakin one on the door frame pulling my bike in an out of the house
