Set up your motorcycle mirrors so that it is comfortable to ride whether you’re standing or sitting.

Bikes are different from cars which have wing mirrors and a central mirror. If adjusted correctly, drivers should have complete rear coverage without any blind spots. However, motorcycle mirrors don’t have a primary mirror and often have significant blind spots, that’s why riders always do shoulder checks.

Our Tips:

It’s important to know what and who is behind you at all times, therefore

  • my advice is to set your left mirror to see what is behind you while standing on the bike, typical ‘meerkat’ style.
  • If you are riding off-road and frequently standing up, tilt your left mirror upwards so you can see who’s behind you
