    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    Instead of new mirrors

    I bought the Suburban Machinery handlebars UP kit which stretched my arms out an inch or two and got my elbows out of the way of my mirrors line of sight. Now I can see nicely through the mirrors, and the kit was only $100. I added some small fisheye mirrors for side view to eliminate the blind spot that cars sometimes hide in. Works well and I like the way it looks.

    Clamp & RAM Mount

    I have been aware of this mirror thread for a while. A friend mounted his camera this way, and I thoought it should work for me, although his bike is not an RT, and is earlier than 2010.

    The MAX info has a part number for the clamp which is valid here in Canada (not a big surprise) and MAX has a chaeper price ($31 US) vs. $45 from the Canadian dealer near me. But, shipping to Canada adds $32! So, I ordered 2 clamps from the dealer. 1 day delivery to dealer from BMW Canada. Special order and non-refundable.

    Before ordering, I did a bit of research on a RAM mount to screw into the clamp. From reading on the web, it seems like the clamp accepts a 10mm coarse thread stud. Can anyone confirm that?

    RAM does make a 1" ball with 10mm stud in both fine and coarse threads. The fine is a RAM-B-349 [10mmx1.25] and the other is RAM-B-349-1 [10mmx1.5]. So, hopefully I can get all this to work.

    Winter is going to end sometime, and I am preparing for a nice long June ride to the West Coast. This time I'd like to get some video of nice riding through the mountains.

    Clamp has 10mm x 1.5 thread...

    ... And the local supplier has only the 1.25 thread RAM Mount in stock. 1.5 now on special order.

    Supplier claims RAM does not inventory their products, and it may take months to get it. My fingers are crossed ... But if they arrive before June 01, no problem.

    The original clamp bolts require a small Torx wrench, as do many / most of the bike's fasteners. I have a small case with both male and female Torx bits. Handy to take on long trips.

    Try saeng.com, lots of mirrors with wide angle of coverage, I like the bar end types, they reduce the blind spot to a minimum, however, because of the wide angle of the view, the objects are closer than you would think.
