Yes!! If the mirror scratches it takes the tint with it. So then you have a clear part going thru the visor. Really sucks.

Mirrored looks cool as hell......that's about it.
I like the ones that have the holograms on them......they're pretty cool too.

Mirrored rocks! Just don't get caught in the dark with 'em. Just call me Dolphin Boy because I was using Sonar that night.

I've been thinking about getting a replacement shield as well. But I do like riding with my sun glasses because I like to leave my shield open at low speeds Decisions

Once you go mirrored, you never go back.

Don't know about that. Like I said, I like riding with the shield up whenever I can and it's nice to still have sunglasses protecting your eyes while getting some wind in your lid. For a long trip (several hours) I'm sure I would benefit from a smoked or mirrored shield though as I have to have the shield down on the highway.

I don't like riding with the shield up unless I'm at a light. (of course then I'm not riding) I worry too much about rocks hitting my pretty face.

Mirrored is the only way to go. say your going a little over and you see a cop, you look soooo guilty if you have to look down and check your speedo, but if you have the mirrored visor just peek down there and the popo will never know.

That is wicked fast. To bad they didn't go from a stop. A bike ain't much from a roll. Wind really starts to slow it down after 100 or so.

I doubt there is enough difference between a GSX-R1000 and ZX-10R that would allow a ZX-10R to do much, if any, better.

There is no tachometer in the video. There is a speedometer and a boost gauge.

Video looks fishy to me.........I dunno. Seems to me that a car that runs 0-150 in 9.7 seconds would be pretty even with a bike that runs 0-150 in under 10. I don't see a 20 bus length difference. My bike did 9.82 @ 146 completely stock.

Prob looks that way since its from a roll. Its entirely possible that its staged, but I doubt it.

That or the dud on the bike just let out early and gave up, I guess that's possible too.

Mirrored only, the Texas sun is to bright some days, plus it looks cool when no one can see your face or where your looking, has that mysterious feel to it
