    Ben, don't forget you get discounts on stuff with forum vendors as you are a premier member! That includes BMW Hp parts.

    I'm pretty careful really, I'm always looking behind me like every 10 seconds probably

    Riding on the road without mirrors is just asking for trouble, and doing a shoulder checks every ten seconds makes it worse rather than better IMO. Hope you're at least an organ donor

    Bike looks good otherwise.

    Stick your mirrors back on mate, you're riding a 190bhp bike, things happen fast, you need to be reading the road ahead not looking over your shoulder unless its a 'lifesaver'

    Congratulations again on your new RR, it looks great

    Personally though, I agree with the others re mirrors, and like Ryan mentioned you might want to consider some crash protection. If so, I would recommend GB Racing case covers and Evotech for radiator/oil cooler guards etc.

    Enjoy your new bike, will look forward to seeing how your "blog" develops

    Although I see plenty of motorcycle riders not looking in their mirrors very often (me included) it does seem like a bad idea to ride around without any fitted. You could always fit a small lane splitter type bar end mirror if you want to keep the antennae off the bike.?

    Only something little and probably none of you care but I love looking back through these vlogs in months to come

    Got a cool tank protector which I think looks really snazzy on the bike, P.S. I have HP Rearsets coming tomorrow, Scale of 1-10 how hard they are to fit?

    Thanks
