Mirrors for motorcycle safety

by Varad More Photography: Kunal Khadse Posted on 19 Dec 201212,148 Views1 Comments

Riding in the city or on the highway, mirrors provide vital information that is key to your safety at all times. Mirrors are the extra pair of eyes that tells you what drama is unfolding behind your back. Keep them, use them and eventually you will know why to thank them

 

Rear-view mirrors

 

 

Why have them?

The mirrors on your motorcycle are an important piece of your motorcycle hardware. When well placed they can increase your peripheral vision by giving you nearly 100% view to the rear and or side of your motorcycle. This extra vision may save you from a nasty situation before it occurs or just enable you to move more easily through congested traffic.

 

 

Alignment of mirrors

 

 

How to align them?

Correct adjustment of your mirrors is crucial, you should remember to check them each time you ride your bike and adjust them when necessary. Always adjust the mirrors while you are stationary. Correct adjustment should give you an unobstructed view to the side and rear, if this isn’t the case you may need to look at getting different mirrors or at least look at mounting them differently.
