Improve Motorcycle Mirrors: See More!


Being seen is important, but seeing well is just as essential when riding. Are your motorcycle mirrors doing their job properly? Here’s a list of simple DIY tips that can improve your view!

Adjusting Your Mirrors

This one seems obvious, but a lot of people forget to properly adjust their motorcycle mirrors. Make sure you’re adjusting your mirrors while your bike is fully upright! Put it on the center stand or sit on your bike still with both feet planted firmly on the ground and adjust your mirrors so you can see what’s behind you clearly.

Keep them Clean

Dust, dead bugs, and other road grime mess with your view: make sure you clean your motorcycle mirrors as often as you can! Clean mirrors means clear view, so just keep a small cloth in your pocket and wipe the mirrors every time you stop.

Reduce The Glare

Riding in the dark isn’t a great idea, but if you must, make sure your mirrors are anti-glare. Minimizing glare will improve your night-time visibility and allow you to see vehicles behind you more clearly.
