Closure.

Interesting exchanges.

Initially, they offered to refund all.

Then, without skipping a beat, dropped that for a "would you take 1/2 as good enough?"

I responded as to last -- tho could not resist a diplomatic dig WRT earlier "all" offer -- that such was OK if (and only if) they paid for shipping if return desired AND they removed all references to such mirrors fitting Stornellos from their ads.

Their response?

I take it that their ads will continue.

I have enough "causes," distractions, and real work to avoid making this yet another windmill to tilt, but I did put an alarm on my calendar to wake me up to check in a month. Wink

In the meantime, I may try to see what kind of surgery I can do the offending Chinesium bar ends without killing the patient. scratch

Now ... Mark, where do I send that $53? bounce

Did they not demand the return of the item?


The $52 solution was based on return of the offending item, and given you still have the mirrors, perhaps should be shelved.

Bill, Townsville Peter has a pair of decent quality bar ends that DO fit the stock bars. I asked him and he said $50 AU if you’d like ‘em? Like me he hates bar ends.

Thanks, Pete (and Townsville Peter). Just might.

I have felt similarly about BEM's but not sure much else will work as well on the Stornello ... at least with large self in the literal picture.

That said, there is incongruity in having hand guards affixed with silly mirrors jutting out just aft. Rolling Eyes

I admit it takes a nano second more to process an image from BEM's but for myself I enjoy a clutter free view ahead with a 210 degree view with only the instrament pod & hdlbrs in my lower periphery (if that's a word).
I also wonder why a rider puts a tv screen between him/her self & the view of the road with an anonymous voice telling them what to do. Both minimizes the anticipation & reward of sorting things out successfully or overcoming adversity. Either way it adds a story.
A friend lost his bike & right foot ("I was riding the GPS & when she told me to turn left I did in front of a car without checking ahead").
I obviously digressed. A carry over from his story I guess. Sorry

Apropos the tyranny of GPS units, I once watched a fellow (on a beemer, thankfully, not a Guzzi, but there but for the grace, etc.) slow to a stop so intent on that screen that he simply fell over.  Sounds funny, and it (sort of) was, especially as he did not lose it foot or more, but it illustrates the dangers.

OTOH -- you will be glad to know that I have only that one left jocolor -- it's not always GPS and electronic distractions.

I was once in a follow-on van to assist cadets of the West Point (bi)cycling team in a race.  This was on a closed circuit of several miles.  One cadet was having a slow day.  Actually, she was having a slow year, but that seems cruel. Wink

The peloton had already lapped our forlorn cadet once and would again soon.

Anyway, as we began a long descent, she picked up about the only speed she was capable of and hurtled (in relative terms Rolling Eyes ) toward the bottom.

When one got to said spot, there were two choices: left or right.  Right was the correct choice, marked by many colorful signs and pavement markings.

Left wasn't a tragedy, but wrong.

Cadet X chose neither.  In an obvious state of confusion, she tried, too late, to come to a stop and ... went into the waiting lake.  Shocked

Readers -- especially U.S. taxpayers -- will be glad to know that she got out of the Army after her obligated tour and never had to lead innocent unsuspecting young Americans into anything more dangerous than a parts warehouse! cheers

Back to dehoarding the house.  I am the "but we might need that someday!" sort.  Kathi, "Cuddle it all the way to the dump."

I admit to using GPS on my phone laying on the console between the seats only to listen & only in an urban environment.
I was able to escort the Tour DuPont for 2 yrs on a K100RS. Those guys were/are amazing. 60mph in downhill twisties on 2" tires. It was hard to keep up @ times.

I finally pulled the trigger on new mirrors. I had Rizomas on my V7 and loved them so I bit the bullet for Rizoma again. Pricey but beautiful and work great. Long overdue.
