    Question xtra R11RT mirrors?

    Anybody got a good/cheap suggestion for mirrors/mirror (one would be sufficient) that I could put in the vacant hole on the handle bar of my R11RT so I can see past my duffel bag on the rear seat?

    I used to have some old airhead mirrors, but lord knows where in the garage they might be hiding

    I'd recommend a folding bar end mirror like a CRG or Napoleon. Bar ends always have a clear view past your elbows.

    Question maybe

    I generally love bar end mirrors, but I also like the Throttlemeister that came installed when I bought the bike a couple years ago.

    Does the left side "bar-end" chrome cap/(weight?), whatever's there that looks pretty much like the Throttlemeister on the other bar... come out/off easily enough? I'm pretty sure I'd be happy w one bar-end mirror of any kind.

    If it has a screw in the end, take it out and see what the end of the bar looks like.
