You're using this link right - http://motoscience.mybisi.com

It still works with Firefox (what I use) and IE...What browser are you using?

Major two thumbs-up to Henri. My mirrors arrived in 2 days! 2 thumbs

I waited to put them on until my last Baja Designs (BD) mirror bit the dust. They call them folders, but I did not except them to fold like they did in the image below. Both broke in the same spot, while simply riding down the slab. At least the rubber sleeve kept them from completely falling off and hitting the pavement. Very Happy

Here's a shot of the "folder," the weak link and the new KTM folders. The picture shows the mounting bolt facing the rider. Bad idea... I spun it 180 to keep it from ripping my knee to shreds.

Yeah, I know. "Nice grips." Very Happy

Ordered a mirror for my Moab trip in May from Henri. Not cheap, but finally, a mirror that works!! (You get what you pay for...)

Survived a couple of getoffs, rock gardens there and here at home. I can actually see what's behind me now!

nice

I'm moving away from these mirrors

They work well as mirrors for sure. Especially compared to the useless BD ones. But they are big and get whacked easily. Often taking the perch with them! I'm moving to the DualStar ones because I'm sick of buying mirrors!!!
Link - Adjustable Mirror
They also make a nice perch for other handlebar stuff.
Link - Roll Chart Mount Comes in all the colors.
Nice people too.

Remember, they fold down for a reason. BRP smile

The DualStars are nice, too.

Yeah, I know. But I run a minimalist hand guard and I'm just lucky I guess ... beat head

Sounds like the same problem Focker had.

Thanks for the reminder!
