Hi titomike with the nice bike :D (it goes well together!)

I know that it's compulsory to have a right rear view mirror in RHD countries and a left rear view mirror in LHD countries.
Apart from that the only difference I know is in the headlight beam, which is designed to spread the light higher to the right on LHD countries and to the left in RHD countries. In case you are found in the wrong country with the wrong vehicle, the headlamp should be masked in a way that the beam becomes level, so that it doesn't throw light towards the oncoming vehicles.
In the older days, there were many (mainly British but some Italian also) bikes which had the gear lever and brake lever in the wrong side, but this doesn't have anything to with RHD or LHD, or does it?
Are there any other differences?

Aris

Damn...I am the weakest link...goodbye....

Yep its the headlight...the reflector/lens is different so low beam goes down and left or down and right depending on if you drive on the proper side of the road, or the other side ..
