agreed.. My doubletakes vibrated like crazy at first, to the point where my left side mirror would unscrew itself from the perch.. After a while I found it was mostly wind buffeting from the windscreen on my bike.. When I moved the mirror glass further out towards the ends of the bars the shakiness at highway speeds diminished greatly.. This is on a 2007 F650gs thumper with v-stream windscreen..

it's still hard to tell if there's a cop or a cadillac behind me at times but even with the OEM mirrors it was hard to tell what was behind me on the highway.. For visibility I would say these are equal or better (in the right position) than OEM on my bike and a hundred times better when I dump the bike in a mud pit where an OEM mirror would break free at the base these seem to just move to an awkward position. Re-position the mirror and ride on!

When in doubt, gas it. It will either fix the problem, or at the very least end the suspense.
