Wide-angle mirror - any experience?
on: 05 April, 2021, 12:53:08 PM
Just wondered if anyone has tried using one of these wide-angle mirrors for bikes?

Looks like it could be useful in heavy traffic .....

Sat on a bike with one, very clever, but I was a bit concerned over the all that reflection all the time?? It was on a Bonneville funnily enough, he had mounted it to the fly screen just above the clocks. It works no doubt, but with the sun behind and above?  Dunno

Hmmm. Haven't bought one yet. May give it a try.
