F 3 mirrors

are all F3 owners experiencing the same as me ,i can see something in my rearview , but i sure as hell don't know if it's friend or foe , maybe my bike vibes a bit more than others, i would be interested to know if we all suffer the same poor rearward vis, also is there any cure or aftermarket solution that anyone knows of .

Tamburini and his design minnions never did like to put mirrors on their bikes, so it's no surprise that the F3 follows that same philosophy.

Yes, they are totally useless at high speeds. Honestly, I have come to expect that of all my sports bikes-mv, ducati, ktm, etc. Useless, totally useless...
