Anyone installed bar end mirrors?

Curious if anyone has removed the OEM mirrors and put on bar end mirrors? Any pictures you can share?

I don't particularly like the look of the OEM mirrors and think something else would look a lot better, assuming visibility isn't sacrificed much.

These look like some great options I found surfing online...

Please do! Would love to see! And how is visibility? Do you have any better or worse visibility compared to the OEM mirrors?

My experience with moto mirrors is more do they actually work, then how they look. If you've ever had mirrors that are useless, you know what I mean. The stockers work well, hold their position till about 90 mph, and don't look bad.

Rizoma had a few that look almost stock with a touch of flare.

I agree. With the barend mirrors I see a one-fourth of my hand and three-fourths of the road instead of seeing half of my shoulder. I will say that the CRG mirrors hold up at 90...um... that is of course, if I ever went above the speed limit.

Anything that makes the bike wider is off my "to do" list. The stockers are quite vibration resistant and give me plenty of rear vision.

Not a great place for quick scanning, though. I like the look on naked bikes but, if you're already rocking a big windscreen, the mirrors aren't gonna cramp your style any less.

Has anybody ever seen a rearview camera installed on a bike? It would be a little rediculous having a dedicated display just for rear monitor but they're getting pretty small. The ones they set in the all-in-one rear view mirror packages are like 3"x3".

Big HUD fan. Google Glass would be a possibly easier route.
