B3 Mirrors

Hi all,

I want to change the mirrors on my B3! Anyone with any suggestions? I did not ever try Bar End mirrors, might be a smart choice since the only thing I mostly see in the mirrors are my elbows...

Ha I'm wrestling with that myself right now. I have the crg arrow bar end mirrors on my streetfighter and love the look, makes it look much more aggressive.

I'm back and forth on the round crgs or the arrows, but pretty sure they'll be bar end.

Puzzled, tho, a couple guys have said the stock mirrors are pretty bad, I find them to be incredibly adjustable, tho awfully ugly.

here's the arrows and hindsight mirrors, fyi, don't buy the cheap ebay knock offs as they tend to vibrate and are pretty useless

I love my bar end mirrors. All I ever put on my bikes now. I can actually see my blind spots.

I have used the arrow bar-ends and they are great but I personally do not like the fact that I need to take my eyes so far off the road especially when the mirrors are needed quickly in an emergency.
Kinda thinking about the following Rizomas.
Feedback? Error? Too big? Not cool enuf? etc?

Of the 3 you chose, I like the Radial the best. I have an older version of those mirrors (different bar adapters) on my current bike. They're expensive, but great mirrors!

Yeah of the three I would also go with the radial's although in black not silver

If it was me though I'd go for the Dynamic's in black

But then I would say that because that's what I've got on mine

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!

I like all three of the rizomas posted. If I were going to keep the rabbit ear look I'd go with one of them. It might just be me, but the conventional mirrors to me just make the front look a bit blah.

I know, don't shoot me, just IMHO. I've been using bar ends so long on my naked bikes that it's second nature to glance, once used to them, they really work well.

Yo...thanks for your opinions. Mirrors are real important to this old dude...not as flexible as I used to be. I agree with the rabbit ear analogy, but how about "sexy looking Italian-like design rabbit ears? I think this style is upscale and will complement the bike. Kinda like Arrow bar end but higher.

what do you guys think of these, made by driven. Not sure I like them, the stalk seems a bit heavy.
