Yes sir, with the hood mirrors....the only blind spot i would have is behind me....but it's still best to git on by. I don't like scooters riding beside me....makes me nervous.With six properly adjusted mirrors I could see everyone of those motorcycles. But if you're riding that close to a big truck, shame on you. And if a truck driver is following you that close he is an idiot not to be dealt with.Like has already been said, pass trucks as quickly as you can. Never ride along side of one. If you've ever seen a big tire blow out you know you don't want to be beside one when it happens.
Almost caught a tire last summer coming home from Kansas City. Was behind a car who was behind the semi. Went out to pass both on the slab and a right rear on the trailor let go. I just got a blast of dust as I was along side the car all ready. The car wasn't so lucky.
I've had the wind knocked out of me three times in my life:
My first wheelie on my bicycle around age 6. Landed on my back.
When I was blind side sacked in freshman football.
And, when I took a shredded tire to the chest on the way home to see my then girlfriend (now squaw) on my '73 Yamaha in 1993.
The third one was the scariest.
