Riding a motorcycle is fantastic, as we all know. Dodging in and out of traffic, accelerating, wind in the face; it's a pleasure. But it's a pleasure that can turn deadly in seconds if you don't pay attention.
One of the common accidents that happen is when you are overtaking in traffic. If you play by the rules, you look into your mirrors and turn on your indicators. However.... your mirrors are limited in their angels. Often you might just miss that 18 wheeler truck blazing past you, and then you're in trouble.
Here's a product that might help you.. It's called Riderscan , and it's a wide-angel mirror that you place in front of you. You place the Riderscan centrally, like on the bottom part of your motorcycle or scooter's handlebars, and because it's a curved mirror, it gives you 180° visibility behind you.
And who knows, maybe it'll even make your motorcycle or scooter look cooler... or not. But then, how important is your life to you. I tend to, after a few pucker moments, crane my head as far as I can to the left to see if some cage has crept up on me. But this could be one way of avoiding neck cramps.
Cost: US$ 36.00
