    FarkleMAS just arrived today!

    Wunderlich Mirror Extenders arrived today and 20 minutes later were installed.

    Shameless promo for these beautifully CNC'd, anodized pieces of beauty with STAINLESS bolts. Pricey ($75.15) shipped for the pair but worth every penny.:clap
    Boots on both need to be put in place.

    Note: Paper towel added for contrast...Wunderlich doesn't provide!:rofl

    The one thing about my GSA that I don't like is the mirrors. They are distorted at the edges and sure feel like they are too close. I moved them a little but found that they can hit the windshield, so that is right out.

    Have any of you tried these Doubletake mirrors? I like the design and the made in USA is also attractive. They may not be more forward but they sure do adjust easily.

    my doubletake mirrors arrived on thursday and i've put about 100 highway miles on them so far. awesome, awesome mirrors. no vibrations up to 75 MPH; over that they do shake. no more fucking around with two wrenches to adjust the stock mirrors: they come on and off in a flash, extremely easy to adjust. i can't wait for my death valley ride next weekend so i can see how they do offroad.

    Hey Red, still like your mirrors. I am thinking about a pair. Did you get the 2" or 3" arm? What would you recommend for 6' rider?

    My approach was replace the OEM mirrors with R1200ST mirrors. I made a composite image in photoshop to show how the oval ST mirrors differ from the round GS mirrors. Not a radical difference, but you get a little more coverage out to the sides.

    A buddy has them on his X-Challenge ad like them. They look like they are well built.

    I just talked to Doubletake, they claim the 3" arm is for riders 5'7" and taller, it folds a little nicer and sells about 3:1 over the 2" arm.

    For a hack, you might want the 2" arm.
