Check the usual... Motowheels, Motostrano, etc... Check the links page...

My local dealer stocks them, that is where I am getting mine, trying to decide blindsight or hindsight...

Howdy.

This topic comes up all the time...do a search.

Rizoma makes some super nice ones ($$), lots of people like the crg bar end mirrors ($), many use Napoleon bar end mirrors (~$25 each). Some even go to a bicycle shop and use $10 bicycle mirrors.

So I liked the CRG lane splitters, but at $175 for a pair I blew that off and got Napoleons. Less than 1/3 the cost, they work fine (good field of vision), don't vibrate.

It's a personal choice + factor in your $$$ situation.

I got ones that look exactly like the Hindsight for $40 each at Oceanside Ducati.

Check out this site. They are bicycle mirrors, but they are sturdy and very low cost. ;D I had the Cycle cats on and they both got broken in parking lot's, G*D D**N 4 wheeled devil's.

I dig the lust for CRGs but I kinda like the bicycle mirror solution myself, but of course my bike seems to drop a lot. I have 3rd Eyes, but the problem with them (other than that they are cheap, disposable, give a good view, and don't look anything like the CRGs or Rizomas) is that they don't fold back, which makes lanesplitting less fun. I used to have Zefal 'Cyclop' mirrors, which look pretty cool, and do fold back. I may go back to them. Of course they folded back all the time at speed...you have to dremel the threaded spacer shorter to fix that (you'll see what I mean when you have them in hand). Takes 5 minutes. Hey, they aren't even glass, and they are asymmetrical but only come one way so the bike isn't symmetrical when they're on both sides, but I'll tell you, more people asked me about those mirrors than any other mod I had on the bike at the time.
