There's no way in hell he'd even be able to tell. It's just a clear plastic plate over the existing clear plastic headlight.

It is not allowed to run anything covering the headlights without approval document.

Oh man, I hate it when the European Highway Patrol pull me over in California, where I live and ride.

Mirage 2 owner here

Just returned from a 1700 mile run from AZ to Montana and I'm now "all in " on the Mirage 2. I changed to the new wider tinted plexiglass portion and it really made a difference to me. I like how easy it is to adjust and when its at full height it offered great protection from wind/rain/bugs etc and throws the air to the very top of my Shoei Hornet keeping things relatively calm. (5'8' comfort seat btw) I think that riding with a visor type helmet will always create more buffering and head bobbing.

All and all the Mirage 2 is the solution for me. I also love the way it looks on the bike and the way it completes the cockpit set up. Good product and Ian is great to work with.

Super excited to get mine!

Do you find it helps at all with the wind blowing you around or it's only good if the wind is coming straight on?

Well, you asked for the reason why the sticker is on it and that's it.
In the U.S. you won't have any problems with the police, I think.

On the coffee cups at MC Donalds here is printed a disclaimer because of the hot coffee even if you won't get a million when you burn your mouth with it. ;)

It's a globalized world...

Sure but the way you said it implied that it was illegal here. My location is clearly marked.
