I see you

When you’re aboard a motorcycle, a good view of the surrounding traffic can spell the difference between getting home safely and exploring the inside of an ICU. Meet the RiderScan blind spot mirror, which gives bikers a 180-degree view of what’s happening behind and around them at a glance. Made from a robust thermoplastic with a chromed reflective face, it can be mounted on any motorcycle screen or handlebars. Warning: Like all wide-angle mirrors, the RiderScan changes size and distance perspective, and doesn’t replace over-the-shoulder checks. Price: about R900 (excluding postage); the handlebar mount costs an additional R350. Visit www.riderscan.co.za
