end of the day that is really just your opinion, as was mine.. it does help, in narrow situations, ones that normal riders don't finds themselves in (stuck in cities with blind spots everywhere).

i don't care how much you aren't paying attention- when i chuck a 12,000RPM rev ( i feel for my bike everytime i have too), attention is quickly found.
