Unfortunately, I can't. It places the mirrors way to far in towards the center of the bar so all I could probably see are my elbows, if that.

I'm going to give this a shot:

FOLD THAT SUCKER DOWN ! and out of the way off road. Riding big whoops if you happen to go off a big one and land in the bottom hard, you stand a great chance to have the mirror shoved into your throat !

DAMHIK !

I see your point. I usually leave it out for offroading...just since I never think to loosen it and move it once I am off the pavement. It does serve well to see if the guys behind me are still there or if i need to wait at the next turn for them. Its not as easy as the "fold in" mirrors..BUT, I am sure if my weight fell on it, it would move or break off. I will try to remember to move it outta the way next time.

Well, maybe not. The Twisted Throttle solution adds almost $60 to the cost of the mirrors. Brings total cost of mirrors to $170. Nice mirrors, but don't know if they're that nice.

I'm going to try and rig something up myself. If I can't figure something out there might be a nice set of mirrors on the FM.

FYI, I superglued small circles of bicycle tube into the cup of the RAM mount. (All these flat tires lately are finally coming in handy!)

I went on a short ride about town with one mirror doctored with the bicycle tube and one mirror stock. The Bike tube mirror stayed in place and seemed to vibrate less than the stock mirror.

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.

New glass came very quick and was easy to install. I like the mirrors and now that I used the easy replacement feature... I REALLY LIKE THESE MIRRORS. $10 plus shipping sure beats any other mirror replacement hands down.

Loved the mirrors on my trip to Colorado. It was a mix of everything from freeway to singletrack riding

PM nedco. I do know they weigh much more than my old mirrors did. Surely with the added ram link it is a bunch. That may be what helps with the vibes.

They are lighter than any stock steel-stalked, glass mirror that I have ever seen come off of a bike. If not, who cares? They WORK and FOLD.
