money grubbing leos
on the S, being that the mirrors are built in, you have few choices...i would have to guess. I am thinking about getting the K12R. Lots of mirror options there...and I hear the bar end work great.
My current ride ( 99 GS, "the BEST one wheel drive machine EVER built by earth dwelling carbon units" ) blurs the mirrors as well at over 80. A while back, I needed to do about 500 miles that day. Alot of slab work ( not fun). I use my r/v/m to look for trends & shapes. If I am not sure, I pull in the clutch, check and then rematch eng to xmission. If i see a light that seems to be keeping up w/ me, I check real good. The m/c cop that weekend had to look else where to line his pocket When he realized I was on to him, he turned off for easier pickin's
When I had an RV6, I passed many things...but that is another forum!

Another is to fly at about 2,500 feet AGL (Aboved Ground Level). This make them be nearly invisible, but they can still see everybody.
I always look everywhere, too, but if I had to blame one thing on why I got my ticket, I would say it is the crappy mirrors and the inability to see clearly behind me. Had I picked him up earlier, I could have avoided the whole mess... Oh well.
Does anybody know of a solution clear up the vision out the mirrors???

About the I-80 corridor... Can you see the plane...if you think to look up?
I always look EVERYWHERE when I am more than 8mph over the limit!

if you removed <img src=" and " alt="Speeding ticket" /> from your post it would have worked just fine

|143LRSD||FacethePower - Thanks. It would have been a little funnier if I hadn't needed the help. If you get a minute, let me know how you did that. Thanks again.|

You'll probably receive a letter(s) from attorneys on this.
