Although mirrors are a really great way to check and see if we really are having a good time, just remember that the ditch on the right side of the bike will almost always end up closer after a quick update of your happiness.....based on this, try to always look to the right when gauging the good times, in case somebody coming toward you in the other lane, is having a bad day, and resents your bliss
It's only money, but a nice close fitting set of blinkers(Kury
or the likes), would get the signals next to the fender. It also would keep your you know what, from looking so big.
You'll get some more feed back here in a few days.
I'm with Doc. The fender bib is a nice touch.
Maybe somebody will come along with some help regarding the plate issue.
