Mirrors
« on: August 23, 2020, 06:23 »
Having a dislike of mirrors sticking up in front of me I have been exploring various bar ends options in recent times - and have never been able to find any which did the job properly and which were usable at all speeds and didn't blur.

Until now.

Having just installed a pair of motogadget (following up an indicator tip from sideshow a few months back and rummaging around the website) glassless bar ends on both my 1000 and 500 I can only but recommend them as they do the job admirably and look good as well.

Very nice, I think the Oberon suit the standard Laverda better,The M.Gs would be great on a special or modern bike I reckon.

I agree.  I have never seen them before.  They are really nice and really well priced

I find that if small out of the way mirrors are important ...... then no mirrors is the ultimate.

My bar end mirror pivots 'up and over' easily when in traffic. Still functional above the hand too. First one I've used, came with bike. Took it off to use stock 70's bar mounted mirror. Soon reverted back. Seems to vibrate different frequency or something. Can actually see behind. It's old and made in Japan. Think I'll try to find similar for other bike.
