It is, and he should have gotten a call back within a day or so. Please let us know if someone is still waiting!

There is not. I've looked at this and there are a bunch of things that concern me- first, it would require both a left and a right mold, second, I worry about glass breakage at sharper corners, and third, I'm not a very stylish guy so the round shape makes sense to me personally. But you're not the first to ask, and I'm the first to admit that maybe we should offer one, if I could just figure out a design that would be pleasing and also as functional as the original!

glad to hear the seed has been planted!

The round one is just a bit too Mickey Mouse ears on something like a Super Tenere for my own personal tastes.

A square mirror would need a pivot at base and at mirror...which is why the round mirror design works..it is oriented right, no matter where you put it.

The durability of the mirror is what makes it so great for offroad riding...and crashing. :)

FWIW, I don't always. If I'm riding with a group, it's nice to just sit down and glance at the mirror to see if folks are close behind.

A buddy has one on his XR100 for keeping track of the kids (who are on 50's). That makes me laugh every time I see it.

I never fold mine in. I just want them to fold easily when they hit something which they do easily.

I can't handle riding with them out off road. I am constantly hitting them. I guess my off roading is more tight single track in the woods.

Yeah..I remember to fold in single track..or trees do it for me. :) I leave them out for everything else..fast sand roads, pits, double track, etc. It is a good way to make sure guy behind is still there.

It changes my riding off road too when they are out. I ride slower. Fold them in and IT IS ON!!! I go from street bike mode to dirt bike mode.

Clearly you could not see the bog since you riding swamp lands with that huge front cowl, for desert/rally racing. :)

Actually, I wouldn't think you'd need two molds if you just put mounting points on the back of a single rectangular mirror for a RAM ball. Then you could simply put the same mirror on the other side, rotated 180, and use standard RAM arms to connect them to the RAM balls on the bars. This would also solve the issue of mirror orientation as you move it higher/lower, and even allow for movement front to back. Just a thought.
