Thumb Thank you Natalie

I was on a CDR ride and I had an aftermarket mirror shear off at the base. When I got to a phone I call Doubletake. I had no internet access so phone order it was. Natalie hooked me up with two sets of mirrors for the GS. Since I was traveling, I had no good place to ship the mirrors and I was under a time crunch. She went out of her way to make sure that the mirrors got to me. I installed them and finished my ride.

This is the third bike that I have installed the mirrors on and I love them.

In this time of poor customer service the folks at Double take and Natalie in particular are top notch.

Did a ride this weekend, and three of the four bikes had these mirrors. The fourth had no mirror IIRC. In hindsight, I should have taken a promo picture.

Satisfied!

I broke the right mirror on my R1100GS. Ordered these Monday and received them in the mail on Wednesday! Install is a snap, and I really like them! Great product, great price.

Ordered Monday, arrived Wednesday, installed, and flat out, stomp down, turn around and spit THRILLED with the mirrors. Adjustable 16 ways from Sunday, stay up at extra legal velocities, and, you know, reflect what's behing ya!

Thanks!

I'm glad it worked out, you got your new mirrors OK and were able to continue your trip without further ado. We're always glad to help out whenever we can!
Thank you for your kind words, it's much appreciated

I just returned from the 700+ mile Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route and must have beat these mirrors 1,000+ times with pine and sage branches. Nothing more required than pushing them back into position. They are tough bastards!

Very sorry you're still waiting on your package! We sure do our best to get them out the door as quickly as possible, but you're absolutely right, customs can most definitely hamper a speedy delivery...good news is, Canada Post gets an A+ for reliability in my book, they may occasionally lack in the speed department, but to date, they've always delivered packages to their destination without fail!

I love my mirrors they stay in place and viberate very little. I am still amazed at how quickly it recieved them. Great job guys. I have only traveled about 1 k miles since I got the mirrors but on the 690 that is like 3k on other bikes.

1" tough-ball

Was just on RAM's website and noticed that 1" tough-balls are available. Has anyone tried them?

They don't show a 10mm x 1.25 option, but I've emailed to find out if they will be available, or if I could custom order them. Last time, I was told they wouldn't be making them in B size, so thanks for keeping your eyes out!

I'm not clear what that part is, does it adapt from one size to another? RAM balls exist in most different thread pitches needed, and that's probably the most elegant solution to avoid introducing another link in the chain. Not sure what size the R80 needs, but the options are either the RAM-B-349U that we sell in either fine or coarse thread, and the RAM-B-367U with a shorter 8mm bolt for those rare bikes that don't use 10mm threads.

As for arms, either will work. I use almost exclusively long RAM arms, as it gets the mirror further out when extended, and the head of the mirror more centered on the bike when folded.

Are the ram balls "normal", or different in any way from one I might buy elsewhere?
The reason I ask is, this weekend, my mirror wouldn't stay tight, so I kept trying to turn the arm lever (but, I couldn't turn it any further). I've had it on my bike for a few rides with no problems, but this was bugging me. So, I took the arm off the ball, and the ball was mushed, like it had melted (but, the weather was actually cool). I've never seen that happen to a ram ball, so I put it in my pocket, and was going to take a pic when I got home... then, the ball was round again!
Any idea what happened? I'm no He-man, so I don't think my superhuman strength warped the ball. Plus, I've got other ram mounts and never had this happen.
(This isn't a big deal- I'm just curious if you use a ram ball from a different company, or something like that.)
