What do you recommend that I can actually see behind me?
I usually take these off when trail riding then put them back on for road use.

I've had good luck with the ratcheting mirrors sold on KTm Twins

Those are not original 690RR tanks. They are more edgy and have clear transparent see-through lines for fuel level checks. Fairing appears to be Alberto Dottori. Makes that bike look gorgeous and versatile!

So Canadians and Arkansas hillbillies are related? Makes sense to me. It worked for The Band.

Plus, this explains GiMotos obsession with camo.

690 salute!

The roads cleared just enough to get her out. It was also nice and warm... ~ 40F! It was -21F a few weeks ago.



I'm using the Dual Star mirrors, which are ok. Kinda have to shuffle side-to-side to get a good view.

I'd like to try the Double Take Mirrors from Neduro.
