OK so I'm new to riding motorcycles so I'm glad some might get a laugh out of this. I've dropped my bike twice and both times it was under 2 MPH. The first time it broke the hand guard on the right side. This last time I dropped it it only broke the left side mirror off. I was wondering if somebody might be able to point me in the direction of some good aftermarket mirrors or even the factory mirrors. I'm in the US IN NORTH GEORGIA. If it makes any difference I'm in Pickens county.

Think you need training wheels first mirrors try dorsoduros/shiver or guzzy there all the same and are ok

I have a spare set in decent shape I'd sell, but I swapped to some ebay ones for like $25 shipped lol. They look like newer type like the Shiver. They're cheap (obviously lol) but seem to hold the position and I can see out of them, so they're legal!

Here, the original mickey mouse ears mirrors are TWICE the price of the more shapely Tuono mirrors - which are EXACTLY the same as those on BMW's R1200GS Adventure. Thus far, I haven't been tempted to investigate BMW's pricing....
EDIT: And they're on the Sertao too. Still not tempted to ask how much....

I picked up a pair of Tuono mirrors for $17 each from my local dealer. Seemed pretty reasonable.

:plus: yes the cheap chinese copies usually blow off at 3 figure speeds & vibrate so bad you can't see anything in them....:rolleyes:

I got a pair of genuine Aprilia Tuono mirrors from The Rocket Centre via ebay. They are doing them for 35 plus postage.

I tossed the rectangular replacement mirrors I bought for the capo a few months ago. Went with new Capo 1200 mirrors. They stick out a little more than the hand-guards. Will get back on the bike when the heat subsides. They look nice and fitment was perfect.

I suggest a lighter motorcycle an/or training before mirrors.
