    Actually, yes, my neighbor has it on his Polaris (I think that's what it is anyway) and he loves it.

    Here's a new aplication for you Ned, I put mine in the buggy.
    Its nice to have when going down the trail to make sure someone is behind me and I fold it out of the way when I don't need it in places like this. My buddies like it but most already have something.

    No kidding, this guy has some trail manners for sure. He was so concerned about getting out of peoples way and also keeping track of folks he went riding with....it only makes sense to have a mirror on there.

    Sorry it's taken me so long to post up some feedback on the Double Take but I'm addicted to this 950 - :evil


    Been riding the piss out of the thing, over 3500 miles of mixed dirt/off-road/pavement since I got it. Your mirror has been on there the whole time as the bike came with nothing.

    Rode to Montana for WestFest and hit 110mph or better (little nervous about looking down at the instruments) many times and the mirror stayed put. Very nice to be able to tuck it away on the tight stuff. Well done sir! :clap

    Another application for the mirror... self-portrait camera rest.

    left side, clearance is perfect.


    [​IMG]
    to get the bolt to work right it was bolt | washer | adapter plate | rubber washer | handlebar mount.


    [​IMG]
    the right side also had a perfect amount of clearance over the oil reservoir, although the paint on the adapter plate started to degrade as soon as i put it on the bike.:huh

    the mirrors are perfect for a reflection shot now and then.


    thanks for a great product!

    Awsome mirror (we carry them), exactly what I've wanted for years, and Ned's a good guy too.

    For those who can make it, we'll be giving away a pair at the EastTex 450 next month (and have them on the trailer for sale too).

    Anyone have an opinion for use on a quad, the short RAM arm or the longer one?

    Bought mirrors for me and 2 buddy's bikes. Pricey up front, but well worth it. The best mirrors for dualsporting out there.
    Found the 3"Ram arm to work best.

    If it helps, the short arm (2") and the mirror are about the same size as a stock mirror (KTM 690 Enduro for example). The long arm (3") adds more clearance for gear, broader riders, etc.

    We've been selling 2" to most folks and really big riders have been ordering 3"...

    Thanks you guys, I will order soon for my Suzuki King Quad.

    I think having one on the "king" would be great while plowing snow (soon) and for trail riding, hunting, etc.

    I like the ram ball mount concept, a guy can pull off the mirror and hang a camera base ram gizzmo on temporarily, or GPS, etc.

    Ram balls the bomb.

    I'll post some pics after I get the mirror in hand and get it on the quad.

    Sheete, this would have been a better choice on my snowmobile too- the crappy one's from POLARIS are blocked by the stock handguards.

    I think you have a couple more markets for these with quads and snowmobiles. Just sayin,.

    These mirror suck!

    :hide :lol3

    I've got one on my 525 and I love it. I'll eventually have a pair on my DR650, and most likely any other bikes I get in the future with substandard stock mirrors.

    Double Take Mirrors were featured in this month's issue of Dirt Rider Magazine.

    Fantastic!

    PS, I have a set and I love them.

    I’ve been using the Double Take Mirror for about six months and have had a great experience with them. At first I did notice some of the slipping that others have commented on (though only on the left side), but after the RAM arm took a set on the ball during the first week that hasn't been an issue. I ride a lot of rocks and they don't move as long as they’re snugged down tight.

    I crashed last weekend on a hardpack road, and the mirror hit the ground and folded out of the way. Neither the glass or body was damaged other than a few scrapes. These things are tough.

    Thanks Ned!

    Received mine Friday. Wow:eek1, 2 days shipping from CO to GA.

    Great looking product, hope to try them out soon. I ordered the 3" arms and already had a set of 2" RAM arms for some other accessories. Have a 3" on one side and a 2" on the other to see which I like best, then will change out the other side to match.

    I biffed in some deep sand this weekend while checking on a rider behind me.
    I quickly unfolded my double take mirror to its upright position and left it there for the rest of the weekend.
