I need a bit of further advice i dont know what to do or whether its just me. I have had the bike out 3-4 times since i got it. I would of being out more but cash is tight and i am waiting for payday to buy leathers and trousers and boots.etc etc My issue is the mirrors on my Mt125 seem rubbish.

I am a bigger dude. ie 6foot plus and 95 kg plus an ex rugby player so i am very broad. Every time i have adjusted them they seem not to either stay in place, or on a ride i am having to pull over and adjust them as i cant see past me unless i ride with my arms tucked in. Gerrrrr i think some tinkering is needed here or i need to see if i can move them out.

Thats the only negative with the bike, everything bar that its fine. It does 60-65 comfortably, it handles better than what i did my cbt on (honda cb 125 thing). I dont think its gunna break any speed records or it dont like carrying a big dude but my riding confidence is still mehhhh very low its improving but i have no confidence while i have limited protective gear bar gloves and a lid.
