Sold the Virago

Recommended Posts

Yep, sold the cruiser a couple of weeks ago. Didnt need to sell, but 1500 miles in the last 3 years on it, seemed a shame for it just to sit in the garage. No regrets, gonna spend a bit on the Fazer now, powercommander to be fitted, likely to need new tyres this winter along with chain and rear sprocket. Going to have a look at a rear view camera set up too, so may be able to dump the mirrors

Oh interested in the rear view setup, more so for when that numpty drives into the back of you. Will you have it recording as well?

No, not bothered too much about recording, just for vision. Currently got the mirrors off and am using a RIDERSCAN parabolic mirror

Update time Alex. The kit arrived, instructions very basic, but easy enough for anyone with a little knowledge to install. Ive just installed the basic parts ie one rear camera and the monitor, just to see if its going to give me what I want. Camera is connected to the rear light feed for the live and earth, then plugged into the screen. Fired up first time. Kit also includes facilty for charging the screen battery via the bike, and a front facing camera (exactly same as the rear cam). Been out with it a few times now, no mirrors on and removed the riderscan. Camera scan angle is 140 degrees. I can now see whats directly behind, and as the cars slip off screen they come into view at my side. Only down side is the screen image is reversed

Looks really clear, how is it without the mirrors? I'd love to do something similar to get rid of them would make it so much easier for commuting.

Not sure I could handle the screen image being reversed, I would worry that at a quick glance I could miss something.

Superior to the mirrors. No blind spots or wind noise/buffeting. Gonna ride like this now
