Goodbye Bunny Ears!

Hello cool mirrors!

These super secret mirrors are pretty cool. Picked them up today. I noticed a little more vibration, but not much. Maybe because they screw directly into the mount where the OEM ones were a two piece thingy.

They work pretty well and look much better. So what are they? Guesses anyone?

Not bad, the chrome matches your bike very well with the Staintunes. What are those plastic pieces in front of your hand grips for...cold weather?

The hand guards are from National Cycle. They arn't pretty but they go on easy (attached by the mirrors) and they do their job (blocking wind).

In the spring I'll get rid of the hand guards and windscreen. I much prefer to be naked.

The mirrors are stock on all Victory motorcycles! I got the pair for $50.

I was going to say you stole them from my old V-star...now that I see them on the 919 I might go steal them back. Nice look!

Thumbs up

That is one cool bike (because it looks a lot like mine )
What is that screen you are using? it looks better than any i have seen.
Like you i like my bike naked but man that looks good!!
Is there any chance of some more photos ( all angles, side on etc)?
As you guys head towards winter we are (in little New Zealand) heading towards summer and that screen is something else, and i can see my hornet looking good with one for Christmas :santa:
Cheers mate

Yes, it's a Honda factory windscreen. I think the Givi ones are too big and I don't want colored plastic on my bike. I don't want it to draw attention to it or to look like a mother alien.

I can take more pictures. It's raining now, so maybe when it stops.

The factory Honda windscreens looks really good when you paint the backside black. A few guys have done it and it really turns out nice!!

how well do the mirrors actually work? Any way to get you to take a pic looking back through them as if riding? Make sense? They look great, but I need functionality as well. Thanks

They work pretty good, that's why I got them. There are two adjusting screws. One at the base and one by the glass. It also rotates a little on a ball joint.

The stock 9er ones work a little better because they are longer, but these arn't that bad.

Coincidence? The mirrors match the hand guards? Good combo.Nice blend.

I wanted to give you just a taste of my sneakiness. You can't see all of me.

It's hard to ride my bike with all the girls throwing their underware at me. But one get's used to it I guess. The lucky few get to see the Super Sneaky Snake!
