Goodies

I gotta say the best gear i've bought are my Sidi Crossfire's and my Bibler Fitzroy tent. Just went up to Newfoundland to ride the railbed, ended up crashing...when the dust settled i looked at my right leg twisted in all sorts of funny angles pinned under my bike and realized if it wasn't for my really good Sidi boots i probably would have snapped my ankle...easily. Also my GPS.

I AM A GEAR WHORE. There, I said it.

I can only think of two things that I have used over the years that I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about them and if they ever break I will replace with the same:

1. Aerostitch Vegan Summer gloves. I know fit is subjective, but these fit me perfectly and have held up extremely well. I've probably worn them for about 14 months (over two years) and only the left index finger shows any wear. And it's just the fuzzy "skin" has worn smooth.

2. My Cetacea camera lanyard. I take a LOT of pictures while riding and this makes it easy peasy. If you need to drop the camera to get your mitts back on the bars, this makes it no issue. Get it HERE

There have to be some satisfied customers after all...

best dang dual sport mirror ever

A MIRROR, simple, tight and tucked away, well built! A friend of mine had one on his KTM450, he said he saw it in Cycle News. I liked it so much I bought two. They are great for dual sport as I do not want a big air flap on my bars. This thing is about as tight and tucked away as you can get. You can find it on motostrano.com and search for "billet moto mirror" .

Great Mirror - close up mounting shown

I have added these recent pics to show the mounting, and that all my buds love this thing.


You can find it on motostrano.com and search for "billet moto mirror" . They run about $60, but you get what you pay for. Just make sure to put locktite on all the screws.

http://www.motostrano.com/mirrors.html - its the simple red one for $59.95, but comes in black and aluminum finish too.

Acerbis makes a similar product in plastic. Although it's a bit more shaky/wobbly than a billet product. Then again, it's 1/4 the price.

I have the Acerbis one but I never use it - it's practically uselsss. I only have it on the bike to get an inspection sticker. 99.9% of the time it's tucked out the way.

YMMV....

They work OK.

Well enough, that I leave them on when I put the stockers back on for riding around on the street. I pull the stockers off when I'm planning on doing trails that would endanger them. Even when I have both on, I'll use all 4 mirrors. If I've got 'em, I'll look at them. They give a little more information. But I agree they don't work nearly as well as the stock mirrors except for when the bike goes down or bounces off trees they don't break. Even if they do, you can buy replacement glass for almost nothing.
