    Accessory Mirrors for 2010+ RT

    I am looking for a set of mirrors that can be mounted on the handle bars of my 2012 RT. Basically like the previouse 05-09 RT's using the GT mirrors. I have found in my research that it is possible to use the GS round mirrors and new mirror perches, but I am not fond of the round style or this style, http://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=76241 . I do like the GT shape mirror. Has anyone had any success with this upgrade?
    Thanks,
    Tony

    you can check out the mirrors from a K1200R, I think the only bike they used them on...oval in shape compared to the GS lollipops...you'll still need the bar clamps from the R or GS

    Helen has them on her R12R , found them on Ebay

    this pic is of a K12R Sport...a rarer bird, but the only one I had of a front view

    I installed the BMW above bar mirrors. They are round in shape but I think they look good and the visibility improvement is terrific. Pretty much just a straight bolt on deal. Change the top clamps and screw the mirrors into place. Very nice really.

    MAX BMW sells a complete kit to mount mirrors. If you ride with a top box it is almost a necessity.

    Thanks for the feed back everyone, I do like the oval "R" style mirrors, so that is what i will probably end up with. Still I would like to try the old "GT" mirrors on to see if they clear the resovoirs on the handle bars.
