Default Would Like To See Some Pics Of Different Mirrors

I would like to say hello to everyone. I am a new member and am anxiously awaiting delivery of my new 2013 XC. I just recently totaled my 2009 yamaha warrior and luckily suffered no more than some road rash and a dislocated right foot. Should be walking out of this damn boot in the next 4 weeks or so! LOL I have attached some pics of my new toy! My first mod will be some new mirrors. Please put up some pics so it can help make my decision easier!

Thanks,

dthom74

Welcome dthom74. So how does one total a Warrior? Just curious.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:

I wedged mine under a school bus. Seems those things just refuse to keep their tires on the ground!

Anyway, I'm sure the OP is in for a pleasant surprise. Aside from the brakes, the Warrior's got nothin on the Vic.

I hear ya Saddle. Can't wait to read his posts after he starts riding it. I hope those mirrors he wants are bigger so its easier to spot cops on his six.

Well basically I locked the brakes up trying to avoid hitting a truck in front of me. Lost control of the bike and it threw me about 100 feet or so off the bike and down the road I went tumbling, spinning and sliding. By the time the bike came to a stop it was pretty banged up, although it did start up right away when being loaded onto the tow truck. I owed about $6,000 on it and wound up making $3,200 on the pay off. Don't ask me how, lol, I guess they took into account all of the upgrades I had done to it.

Hopefully your new one has anti-lock brakes. Unfortunately, mine doesn't.

You're gonna love the ABS, but a trained and skilled rider can make a bike stop shorter than ABS will. Good luck and heal up fast.

Thanks RICZ. I can't wait to take it for a ride. The combination of my weight at 287 and the very high ride height of the warrior made it even tougher on me to keep control. Not to mention I was going a little faster than I should have been. But believe you me I have learned my lesson and although I was wearing my half helmet which did its job during the accident, I will be wearing nothing but my Nolan N85 full face helmet from here on out.
