After living for some time with the rectangular bar end mirrors, a practical change was in order. The lovely chrome rectangular mirror vibrated terribly rendering it virtually useless at speeds over say 1 MPH. The bike doesn't do a lot of miles anyway, so each time I rode it I vowed to go back to conventional mirrors (not very cafe-like), or find some other solution. It turns out that the other solution is really a plain and simple bicycle bar-end mirror. I had this mirror laying around for a long time, but finally got some quality garage time to do the simple swap. Cheap, functional, lightweight, and somehow in keeping with the spirit of the bike. With this kind of weight savings I am now finally ready to embarass the field at the next Manx TT.
