Just a custom mirror. Probably so you can legally say you have a mirror on your bike. I'm guessing the "PIG" is reference to the PoPo


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

yeah, most of the stuff is a bit over the top for me. im just browsing all types of sites to see who has the best parts and accesories for the best prices.

currently looking for an FEK, K&N air filter, windshield, and a tail light intergration kit.

Not sure if it is a concern to you or not, but it's been reported that the K&N will make you lose a hp or 2. Some guys are all about that 1 HP.

The pigspotters are ok. I have them on my R1. You cannot adjust them up or down but you can adjust them left and right. I can see my 5 o'clock and 7 o'clock with them. I couldn't see behind me with the stock mirrors so no big deal. I like that they match the lines of my bike as well. I'll post a pic if you want.

Tail light signal integrator. Goto www.flashalert.com

The aftermarket filters I understand let too much air thru. The stock filters on the newest bikes are actually better for the performance of the machine.

My neighbor agrees, and claims that the idea is that they're only big enough to flash red and blue when the PoPo start closing in.
