I just rode a couple hundred kliks on my 640A on road and offroad in the last two days and a couple of hundred more of both today at speed on my 525R both equipped with new Double Take mirrors. I have to say I am very pleased with the performance. On my 640 the image is actually better than stock with a better reach and the 525R showed great resolution on the street time with useable reach. Highly recommended, thanks Ned for getting me squared away before I left Alaska.

I ordered my mirrors on the 3rd and they were in my mail box on the 5th. Amazing service and thanks. I don't ride trails, but still have managed to break a mirror or two . . . or three . . . or . . . well you get it. On my f650gs the vibration factor is no worse, maybe a little bit better than stock at 85 mph and they stayed in place. My feeling is that this is an outstanding oroduct. thanks for the service and the mirrors.

Guess I didn't make that too clear. That part of the post was directed at Motoriley.

I just got back from a trip to Moab, UT. Gave the mirrors the ultimate test on the White Rim Trail and the Poison Spider Trail. They fold back perfectly every time I hit the ground or the Slickrock. Many of those crash tests.

WOW! I'm in awe of the elegance and simplicity of this! It's so obvious that I am amazed it hadn't been done before! Congratulations on opening the door when Mr. Opportunity knocked! I will be ordering some!

Got the package in the mail today. I will agree that these are nice quality mirrors.

Unfortunately, the "Build Your Mirror" is not for an 1150GS. There is just no way I can see to use those parts to mount them on my GS.

So, has anyone successfully mounted these on an 1150GS and can you explain how you did it?

Thanks.

I did a 350 mile overnight ride ride to the northern Arizona rim country this weekend. Somewhere along the line my left mirror glass shattered? I never hit anything, never went down. I just happened to look at it and it was in pieces.

I put this product report here in case this is a growing issue. Hopfully it is a one time case.

I'm guessing at three things...
1) I tried to adjust it on the fly by grabbing the round mirror part while it was tight and broke the glass? However I think I would have noticed that at the time.
2) A rock from my riding partner hit the back side and that did it. I would notice if my partner was throwing rocks and I wouldn't ride that close as a general rule. There was only one time I did notice a couple of rocks coming my way. We are riding semi quick forest roads with gravel. But I don't follow close on purpose due to dust. I don't catch rocks when riding.
3) I flipped a rock that came all the way back up and caught the mirror? Not likely but maybe.

I'll contact the manufacturer for replacement and life goes on.

I would bet this was the case - I have had this happen before, with other mirrors - but the DT mirror would be no different...

Sorry for the trouble. I imagine it was a rock in some guise that caused the break, but obviously it is hard to know.

We do sell the glass alone, it's on the components page. You can install it with clear silicone and should be on your way.

No problem. I do like the mirror's and it's nice to be able to replace just the glass. I ordered 2 to save on shipping and have one on hand for the next time. I figure if I have it I won't need it :) That's the way my life usually works
