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...

Same story on my BMW S1000RR, you can't see the difference between a bike and car over 80+mph

re: mirrors

Hey, my wife just discovered that if you adopt the motocross "attack" position - elbows up - you can actually see behind you. You might look like a bit of a dick though.

Pull the clutch in for a few seconds when you need to check for unfriendly stalkers and the vibration blurring is gone. It helps to tuck your elbows in at the same time. Sounds a pain I know [it is] but at least it might save your licence. Cops are clever at sneaking up behind bikes knowing that sooner or later they will..let rip.

I've come from a Tiger 1050, can you imagine how excellent the mirrors on those things work! I could tell if the chick two cars back had hard nipples.

Excellent advice works well
