At last week's Meet & Greet in Plano someone noticed the small blind spot mirrors on my RT's rear view mirrors and asked for more details. Here is a picture:

These mirrors have a 1 3/8" diameter compared to the usual minimum of 2". They are offered by BikeMaster, Part Number 60-0209. Ordered them through Plano Honda; cost was $3.94 plus tax in August 2005. Package contains 2 mirrors.

While small, they serve their purpose well of letting you know if there is someone in your blind spot before you switch lanes.

I have some also, I bought mine at Lonestar BMW/Triumph and I have seen them at Cycle Gear here in Austin and CycleGear.com (http://www.cyclegear.com/).

Our instructor highly recommended blind spot mirrors to us students during our bike training course. ;-) At last week's Meet & Greet in Plano someone noticed the small blind spot mirrors on my RT's rear view mirrors and asked for more details. Here is a picture:

A head check works well too ;-)
