Before everyone jumps to crazy for not having mirrors does anyone else not run any mirrors? I absolutely hate how bar ends add so much width to the bike kills looks in my opinion and the aftermarket options everywhere else just look goofy as the stockers. I contacted fredyee with the awesome red and yellow xbs those were the only mirrors I'd consider but he doesn't have any in stock and hasn't contacted back in a few weeks so I'd like to see any and all photos of your bikes with mirrors to get ideas. The previous owner ran no mirrors from the day he bought it and never had issues I considered just plugging the holes and going as is also

These are the mirrors I like. Only ones so far. Not too high the stalks look great better than rizomas. They are called F1 mirrors http://www.buellxb.com/buell_images/20350_20150410143037_L.jpghttp://www.buellxb.com/buell_images/20350_20150410143006_L.jpg
I also asked if he would trade one of those bikes for mine he ignored that question hahaha best lookin buells I've seen

those mirrors look cool, but you're only going to see your forearms cause the stems are too short...ask me how I know, same stems here...

You can flip them out if you need to, but I run them like that and have no issue seeing behind me.

I was just going to comment with those same ones. Got em on Amazon for like $25 shipped and they look great. They're bar-ends without the extra width!

Got these on mine and they have worked out just fine(plus the price was right). Looks like the ones in the pics you posted but the stems are different. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Black-Anti-Glare-Motorcycle-Rear-View-Side-Mirror-Rectangle-8MM-10MM-/201227636626?hash=item2eda1a0f92&vxp=mtr

He asked to see other people's mirrors, and if people run without mirrors. Most buell people run mirrors. That being said, people have been discussing mirrors, I don't see how it is off topic...

I love the look of my magazi tulip mirrors, but they vibrate and fall down at speed.

let's go back to this question...what state are you in that allows no mirrors on motorcycles? just curious...anyway, think everyone runs at a minimum one mirror legally.

there are many styles out there, which you've probably already seen, the hard part is deciding which one suites you and the bike.

it's your decision in the end on using mirrors or not, do what you like.

I's just teasin...

I have bar ends I think they look great but to each their own. One thing I like about bar ends from a practical standpoint is that you get a wider field of vision. I can see beside me and behind me at the same time.

I wouldn't go without mirrors, you're already a target on a motorcycle, why make it even less safe? Just my opinion. Just gotta find something that you like the appearance of. Those magazi tulips are sweet, first non bar ends I've seen that I kinda like.

I'm in new York and my friend who I bought from was on border pa NY. Only time a mirror went on was inspection day then straight off. Never had any issues cops don't seem to bug bikes all too often in NY they mostly go after the cars for every little thing. Just like driving with no seat belt is illegal but bikes don't have seatbelts plus I guess they figure your turning to look anyways before turning. At least I know I usually do. And thrst this mirrors your running same stalks as ones I like where did you get them they may have the option for the rectangle mirror I also like and want to look into that. Cause the ones on the red and yellow bike look a bit wider than your oval ones

those are I believe Drag Specialist mirrors with short stems, about 4" long...they do make 6" stems, but will cost a bit more. don't remember exactly where I got 'em from, but try amazon or ebay. think the mirror dimensions were like 1-1/2" tall x 3-1/2" wide.

I can't imagine riding with no mirrors honestly. I rode my brother's sv1000 which has the ****tiest aftermarket mirrors that are almost completely worthless and I feel pretty unsafe not knowing what is coming up behind me at all times. I often see people flying down the road rapidly changing lanes in my mirrors and can prepare for it. Without mirrors, I might look over my shoulder to a "clear" lane and then get hit by the car who just quickly changed over two lanes or was traveling so fast that he was out of my line of sight when I checked my blind spot originally. I have also known more than one fellow rider to avoid getting rear ended at a stoplight because they could see the car in their mirrors approaching at speed with no signs of slowing down.

Just bought some Rizoma circuit 744 (like I posted above) knock offs for $50 instead of $300

www.aliexpress.com is a great place to find knock off rizoma stuff, even comes in rizoma boxes, but I found the ones I wanted on ebay eventually

Aftermarket accessory manufacturer 'Albert' developed for old BMWs what to my eye is still the best mirror option ever!

They make a longer stem version of the same mirror...I have them on my Softail.
