    Coming SOON to Muth's product line!!!

  • #2
    nice idea, but too pricey for me as well as a significant install time and space requirement..... I still turn my head and look after signaling, almost on every lane change...

      I love the idea, but this is out of my price range.

        Great product. Will be a tough sell for seasoned Wing owners.

          I think it is super cool, and a great safety enhancement.

                  I like it a lot. But I'm not sure if I like it for 599 reasons. Also, it seems like the notification icon in the mirror is a bit small to see. I'd like to see a Red icon or arrow (like what the Mercedes cars have) as I believe that would alert one better.

                      I hope to be installing it soon on my 2012. I will keep everyone updated! If it offers enough safety and can avoid a collision, it is well worth the price.

                        I guess turning our head to look is to hard to do.

                          I think they would argue that it is good to know if a vehicle is coming up behind you, even if you are not planning to change lanes or turn.

                            Trust but verify. I ALAWAYS turn and look. $599, that's a stretch.

                              I like the directional only. $599 plus a 2 hrs install. Overall, too much for me. Also, the warning icons should be enlarged.

                                  A year later, I note that the whole thing is a bit over $500.

                                    Personally. I have the blue tint Muth's on my bike and like them, to help me being seen by distracted cage drivers (Anything to help that is)

                                    But the day when I can't look over my shoulder to see if its safe to change lanes!!
                                    Is the day I stay off the bike all together!.
                                    After all, YOU the Rider/Driver are Supposed to not trust your mirrors alone.
                                    YOU are supposed to look over your shoulder to be sure its safe to change lanes!!


                                    I watched the video. The Icon.
                                    1. Is so small on the glass
                                    2. Is not in my line of sight to be beneficial to me! just sayin'
                                    3. When in bumper to bumper traffic-That Icon will have a fit, As I split lanes or as cages pass me?
                                    6. The radar unit fits in the Right front pocket. If ya got one.

                                      The mirrors? Sure, I can see the benefits there.

                                      The blind spot monitoring... I'm in the majority of riders who learned the double head check technique a long time ago.

                                      I do it when I'm in the cage as well.
