When it comes to customizing our bikes, the last thing we typically think of is the mirrors. Well if you own an H-D Batwing Fairing bike than I’ve got something worth checking out. Fairing mount mirrors, available in an assortment of styles. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) knows all about adding personal touches to our rides. We also find it easier to justify if that product serves a purpose as well.
To begin with, when we move the mirrors from the perches to the inner fairing we are streamlining the contours of our motorcycle. Not only does this improve the looks, it improves aerodynamics too. Fairing mount mirrors are often produced in a few different variations. Take a look and compare…
- Convex Mirror Set – This design is as simple as they come. Nothing fancy here, just a plain jane mirror on a fairing mounted frame. These mirrors usually only come in Black.
- Spotter Mirror – This design includes an integrated wide eye lens that improves rearward vision. This can be especially helpful for those broad shouldered individuals or those that ride in gear that widens their girth.
- Chrome or Black – This is a personal choice at best. Some of us like the flash of chrome while others like the subtlety a Black finish. The difference sometimes comes down to the color of the bike or if it has a painted inner fairing.
- Built-in amber L.E.D. turn signals – Let’s face it, you are going to have the fairing apart to install your mirrors, why not increase your visual footprint and install additional lighting. L.E.D. lights are brighter, faster acting lights and when used for indicator lights can increase your visibility, improving your safety.
In all actuality, there are 7 different versions of the Fairing Mount Mirror available for installation on your bike. It all comes down to personal preference. Do you want an improved look? Are you looking to accent the paint and chrome on your bike? Are you looking to add more lighting? Whatever the case may be, K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has the finishing touch you’ve been looking for. Contact us soon and avoid the Spring Rush.
