mirrors legal or not in QLD

eddypro,

I think it's to do with the height above the bars/road. They don't give a shit whether visions any good so long as the specs are right.

Cheers

Really, haven`t they got anything better to do, like catching people running red lights or generally being a dick. Surely if they work better that`s what matters. Common sense aint that common. Phaark.

Did he discuss it with you Eddy? As far as I know, most of the nice aftermarket mirrors are too small. There is a ADR standard relating to the square cms of area. Ozzy got pinged with Rizoma/Triumph barend mirrors for this reason.
Apart from that, they can ping you for 'having a dangerous modification'. Very grey area and open to the popo's interpretation, originally it was aimed at spikes and crap like that, but has been used for carbon fibre bonnets. Beats me why they don't ping bullbars on 4WD's.

Yep, John so true ,now how the hell did the standard pre y10 mirrors ever get passed,could not see crap out of them.I can see more out of these mirrors ,much safer.

Some of these cops pull over bikers to check out what exotic machinery we're riding because they can!! And they hope to spot a "fault" to raise some more revenue for a desperate and greedy government!!!

Australian Design Rule (ADR) No. 14 – Rear Vision Mirrors

http://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/F2006L02663

If you can work out the general dimensions needed, let me know.:ahhh:

Whoever designs these rules should also realise that in some cases - ie. with the CRG Arrows and many other mirrors - they provide FAR BETTER rear view than the stock mirrors.:wtf:

Most riders replace their mirrors so they CAN see better.

With the stock mirrors, you see your elbows and partial views (40-60% ?) of the cars behind you.

With the CRG's you actually see 95% of the cars behind you !

It would be very interesting for someone (Eddypro??:naughty:) to challenge this in court.

If you can prove your mirrors allow better visibility than the stock mirrors, then surely this is the safer and better option ???
What a totally pathetic Australian Design Rule ! :nutkick::thewife:


Also, the Dealers / Retailers / Manufacturers should state that these mirrors are illegal (especially in Australia), so you do not 'waste' your money trying to be safe.:banghead: :wtf: :bash: :jerkoff:
