Inexpensive mirror extenders

I purchased these mirror extenders on Ebay in hopes that they would work on the Versys. They fit great, are well made, and are an inexpensive alternative to new mirrors. I can't say they help much with the vibration, but they do help you to see beyond your shoulders:

"where are you located? "

Hey BV,

I just noticed you are in Athens! We're not very far apart at all. I live in Hazel Green. I have an aunt in a nursing home over in Athens. I try to get over to visit her as often as I can. You live in a great place. I graduated from AState waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy back in 1990. My brother and I like to ride over to Decatur and check out Allsport Cycles on occasion. We go through Athens on our way. Hope to see you around.

No problem with the stock shield or the Mike's shield on my bike.

Hey Bama!
I used to live in HG years ago, off Charity Lane. Now live in Athens and commute daily to Decatur everyday on the V. Rode thru HG about a month ago. Good to hear from a Versys neighbor! See you down the road!
