    Lee,

    Do you know of any RS riders using the bar mounted mirrors?

    No.
    I like fairing mounted mirrors, they seem to require less eye movement.

    Personally, I agree. However, the replacement cost on the whole fairing mounted mirror assembly could cause one to consider the alternative.

    Yep, it's frustrating you have to buy the complete mirror and mount if you only break the mount.

    Great to know thanks.
