HAHA I noticed that too when i first got on my brute. Then I realized I didn't real need to see what was behind me, because they get really far back there pretty quick.

I can see straight behind under my arm. When I'm changing the lane or turning, I always do the "lifesaver", looking over my shoulder. It doesn't matter how good the mirrors are, I'll do it anyway, it's a good habit.

So... I don't need better mirrors.

I went with bar-end mirrors instead. Like most OEM morrors, the Brutale ones show you your elbows.

Most folks including us went with the barend mirrors. You're right you can't see through the stockers cos of the vibrations. They actually enhance the 'brutish' looks of the Brutale. Combine that with the weighted barends, they do reduce some of the discomfort from the vibrations on the bars as well.

They are CRG mirrors. The bar ends are Motovation. I have this combination and like it. CRG mirrors are slightly convex and that really helps. Before them I tried Oberon Streetfighter mirrors. They are smaller, the glass is flat, you can't see shit out of them, they are not adjustable without tools and the bar end weights they come with are aluminium - providing almost no relief from vibration. :blah:

My mirrors were worthless to begin with. Then I removed the pin that was holding them in place on the handlebar and now I can actually rotate them to an angle where they are use full. Not perfect but much better, as I really do not like any of the alternatives.

on my wish list... Rizoma reverse Retro's with weighted bar ends

Currently still stockers but have a bar end like the Oberon's on my fighter that I might try but because of the vibe I doubt it will be useful

I just don't understand what you Brutale weenies (Randy's word, I have no idea what it means) are complaining about.

F4 mirrors?.....I just concentrate on the road ahead :stickpoke

When I was 16, I did that too. After about two months, one time there was someone passing me on the right when I moved over.... Not pretty.

Please don't ride like that, I'd hate to lose you!

Mirrors are important to me--I use them to check to see if any cop's following behind or if drunks are following too closely! The people that say they don't check for traffic behind...they are either very lucky or very ignorant. :jerkoff:

Craig, when you move up to the higher society of owning a Brutie :stickpoke you will also find the mirrors useless most of the time... unless you adjust them while the front wheel is off the ground. I find I have to stand up on the pegs to see anything out the front let alone the rear while riding my Brutie. :smoking:

Not you of course--you do the headcheck! :yo:My post happens to be right after yours but my comment is to those that try to sound cavalier or macho about not needing mirrors.
