I agree with this statement. Dual sports should come from the factory with foldable mirrors. The top of the threads on my right mirror is cracked/split from a couple 0 mph drops and vibrates now. I'm waiting for it to break and take flight one day soon.
The foldable aftermarket ones I've seen are $100...for two freakin mirrors!
