    Can you tell me what device is on the windshield?

    Just purchased a 2012 R1200rt and it has a pair of some sort of attachment on the windshield. Anyone know what the heck it is?

    Looks like a radio antenna.

    The angle makes it look like the antenna. That ain't it. There is one on each side of the windshield. Here is another picture.

    Is that an OEM windshield or aftermarket? Could they be something sold by whoever makes the windshield?

    Yep!

    Odd that you didn't get the mirrors with them. Either way, I'd source some, those mirrors allow you to see more than your elbows...

    Thanks for the info. No mirrors came with. I'll contact Saeng and see if I can score a pair.
