Nice,

I took mine off last week. Bar end mirrors are soooooo much better and even look much nicer.

I'll post pix as soon as ..well tomorrow. :)
I cannot believe that I was such an idiot and rider for 31 years with stupid stock mirrors and always had to move my shoulder out of the way to see sh.....:)

Here are mine.

I just posted the links etc. here and realized that it needs to go to the 2013 + area in the forum, so I'll post my mirror links there.

I had these on for a week and what I like about them a lot is that I don't have to fold them in when it gets tight, but they don't provide as large of a view area. But so far I have not missed anything behind me because of it.

Here is the link to the bar end mirror section.

What's that big funny tube sticking out of the bike on the left in those last couple of pictures? ;-)

Hahaha... Fred,

This tube used to deliver first grade CO2 for 73,000 miles to all of our delicate plants that need CO2 for its photosynthesis :)

Shame on me to deprive that vital nutrient to my fellow plants now.

Bad Zero Lady fed with 100% wind. I hope they really cranked up the furnaces producing the wind mills :)

Follow up:


The mirrors
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MY5HROM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
For $20.88


Have proven out to be awesome.


They are small, but I see everything behind me, the whole street from each mirror.
I see the cops too really well, when they are struggling to keep up with me... hahahaha...


Keep in mind, to fit those, you need smaller inserts, which you can get for $9.99 off of these:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002GTKAHQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


And turned over the grips like I did, they are not adding to the handlebar width at all.


Angled up just a bit, and your hands never touch them accidentally either when grabbing back the handle bar after a super man backwards flip at the X-Games.

I've thought about using those with my Cycra hand guards. Just leave out the rubber plug and get a longer screw. Anyone tried that or have any idea why it wouldn't work?

Looks like it'll work great:  http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/handguard-mirror-setup.1038326/

Dont you have probs in the city if you pass through the jamming cars? ( mirror-slalom). Or is it not allowed, to overtake when cars are waiting at a traffic-light?

The laws about "lane splitting" can be different for each state, in the United States country. The state of California passed AB-51 bill, and now it is legal to do lane splitting.

In the state of Colorado, I think it is not legal to be lane splitting, but you can ride next to another motorcycle in the same lane of traffic.
