    So here's the RHS (driver's side :p) mirror seems to be set up for someone who's about 5'4" (I need to duck right down in order to use it) and I can't seem to get it into a better position. Is there a trick or technique that can be used in order to angle it up? The mirror rotates but...
  5. Dominator exhaust and off road mudguard added to the 650

    Hi guys, I added a dominator exhaust and off road mudguard to my TA last week. I think the mudguard ads a more aggressive look the machine.
