doubletake mirrors

This is a good idea for anyone that likes to ride in dirt and falls over occasionally, like everyone pretty much. It will prevent your mirrors from getting smashed.

It is a simple ball mount replacement for your mirror mount, then an extension arm, standard RAM stuff, and a mirror with a ball mount.

I've got them on both my XR650L and my XR600R, and a bought a pair for my buddy's XR650R. They are amazing, full-stop. My two complaints relate to the RAM soft ball mounts cracking after a short while (though this hasn't led to failure) and the clamps not holding the mirrors in place at freeway speeds (which was solved by wrapping the mirror balls in saran wrap).

Highly recommended.

Yeah, several threads on these here already.

I used these all last year for about 12k miles and they were near perfect. No drifting at highway speeds, good clear glass, easy to adjust, great visibility. I am happy with my purchase. They are expensive when you include the RAM arms, but infinitely adjustable and they work great.

2002 DL1000: 75k miles. Bought at 50k miles.

The one thing I see as a detractor is they would be easy to steal.

They're on the want list for my DR650. No need on the Strom.

Current: '14 DL1000A, '16 DR650SE, '15 DR200S
Past: '07 DL1000, '01 K1200LTC, '89 ZX10, '81 KZ650, '75 DT400B
All I care about is riding... and like, maybe three people... and beer.
