Bar End Mirrors

I just installed a set of bar end mirrors from eBay. I haven't tested them yet, but I am getting ready for road trip to the MotoGP races at Indy this weekend and I'm going out at lunch to pick up another set of RocStraps and I'll be riding with these for the first time. I'll get a picture at lunch and update later.

I did eBay bar end mirrors and love them. Not so much for mirror functionality but for the improvement in view and wind flow! Stock mirrors are better mirrors, but the bar ends improve the ride more.

i had bar end mirrors on my Z1000. it is a better view behind, but you have to take your eyes off the road ahead to view them. there is no glancing view like a normal mirror. just be aware that you will cover a lot of ground while taking your eyes off the road to check them.
