Double Take on a Ural

Got the mirrors installed and they are sweet. They actually look better on the bike than the factory mirrors which had silly chrome extensions or the cheapos that I replaced them with. Neither set would hold it's adjustment either.

What did the bike look like ? I like my bikes to much to beat on them that hard.
IMO(and just IMO...) everything on a bike should be able to take approximately the the same beating - crashes, romping through whoops, landing flatbottom, etc. The stock and crappy folding mirrors have been the ONLY part that has not been up to par. I still have all my original turn signals(even bulbs!), windscreen, bodywork(although not cosmetically perfect...), etc. - for reference. The stock (and crappy folding) mirrors just did not hold up at all.

Don't take this the wrong way, I don't mean in in any sort of condescendant or arrogant way - but perhaps you are just riding softer than most.

Ned

Pleasure speaking to you on the phone today about your product. Just got the order confirmation. It will be presented next Thursday to the Chicago Region BMW Owners Association at our monthly meeting during our consumer interest segment. We will try to get it published in our June newsletter and placed on our website. You have a winner and I will get back to you about how they work on the RT and GT models our members own.

To whoever said the mirrors weren't pretty, I now have a fine rebuttal: They look great on a Ural!



Glad they are making it out into the real world. The best part will be seeing pictures of these things on top of sand dunes, dirty in the mud, and everywhere else YFF's figure out to take them.

I'm one of the ones that said they were ugly . . . didn't stop me from buying them, though

I'll be sure to give 'em the ol' torture test. I have quite a few BIG dual sport trips planned for this year . . . stay tuned . . .

Hold up, riding a Ural in the dirt ? Must be fun.....
How are going to drop a URAL WITH A SIDECAR ?
On that bike the mirrors look like a fashion accessory.

What intrigues me is the riding 500+ lb bikes off road and then
worrying about dropping them. 500+ lbs in dirt = you will be dropping it.
Not only mirrors will be breaking. You will start breaking...

I could almost guarantee these guys use their rigs strictly for fashion shows. Yep, I'm pretty sure.

Ned, how much does a mirror, short ram arm and ball weigh in at?

Wish RAM had a smaller ball mount system for the lighter loads. Otherwise the RAM stuff rocks, your mirrors looks great, and I plan to get a set of your mirrors as soon as a bust the OEM ones I have -- which shouldn't take long.

Small balls

They do have a smaller system.

Check out the "A" size

Ned - suggestions for version 2.0 - go with the smaller "A" size ram mount and either do a two-part injection molding process to get some softer compound on the ball end of your mirror, or use a threaded insert in the bottom and screw in an actual RAM ball so it isn't so slippery.

Just ordered a set for my 2009 DR 650. I'm just sick of looking at my Hi Viz shoulders/ arms in the mirror.

Like many of you wish I would have thought of this. I'll post some images once i have them mounted.
