I rode with a helmet mirror for about 10 miles once, I pulled it off and never used it again. I rode right off the rode while trying to use it! This setup works great for me...I moved it forward enough to be just a quick glance down and far enough out to see clearly past even a flapping jacket sleeve. I used plastic for the first one, but it vibrated to much so I made this one out of the aluminum. I'm thinking about making one that will slip on and off of where the hood cover attaches to the shifter body.
