Went for my first long ride yesterday, about three and an half hours. Just about glad to get home as my knees were cramping up. Just a matter of getting used to though. Great trip. Really happy with the bike, except for one small thing...........
What are your thoughts on the rear view vision? I can see behind in the right lane and the left lane but cannot see immediately behind me. I cannot see if there is traffic up my back. Any thoughts or recommendations?

Re: Rear View Mirrors
For what it´s worth I have noticed what appears to be better rear-veiw from the left hand mirror and have got into the habit of tipping the bike if I´m desperate to see whats going down on the right of the bike. I beleive EMGO have a good selection of aftermarket mirrors and IMHO it would be a simple job to measure the centres of the existing mirrors and see whats available in something with a longer stand. Suzuki are great ones for adopting the universal fit theory... so there is bound to be something out there that will suit your needs
If you get stuck, sing out, I´m happy to see what I can dig up...

Well, the mirrors would be on the circuit with the courtesy lights. The door locks and windows would be on different circuits. Why can't you unlock the driver's or passenger door with the key and open it with the door handle ?

Hi there. The mirrors should have everything you need mounted to them if they are for an s10. There will be three screws on the external faceplate, under that three larger screws that go through the mirror directly to the door.
Thanks for the picture - that's a big help.
It looks you have the dreaded light tunnel collapse common to all LG
DLP TV's. Inside the light engine there is a square tube made up of
four mirrors. These mirrors deform and crack with the heat of the lamp.
They fall down over the light aperture and cause a shadow of varying
degrees. It is fixable now at a realistic price ( used to have to
replace engine) as LG have made the parts available. It would take a
competent tech around three hours to complete or if you are technically
minded you could do it yourself. I hope this helps.
Hope Ya Fix It!
