Just kidding.
But still, you don't even show the main feature.

Joe, you mentioned not being able to distinguish the type of car (is it a cop?) when speeds reach above 80 mph. The Tuono mirrors on my 650 V also vibrate like that, but if I grasp the mirror between my index finger and my thumb the image stabilises and I can have that "damn, that IS a cop" moment.

Great. If you can link to where you got them (more precisely), I couldn't find them.
This would be a nice upgrade for trail riding (yeah, some of us do that...) to save a mirror.

I'll post updates on the mirrors every so often. I don't think there will be any issues. I might take one of the grips i cut off when i put on heated grips and make a couple of rubber washers to use with the mirrors...

Thanks for sharing.

I think I'm gonna pass. The shape is not quite right; it should be larger on the outside (like the factory ones) to maintain rear view while leaning.
The doubletake mirrors have the same flaw, although these are less ugly and less bulky.

Also, (minor) it seems to lack a ball joint at the mirror to allow further tilt for stand up riding. Not something I would miss for long, but it would have been a nice touch to preserve the feature.

I cannot say it's a bad mirror, certainly not for the price. Definitely a cheap replacement compared to original...
