I'm going out on the snake oil limb here, but I have never experienced any kind of corrosion control and prevention like CorrsionX.  Learned about it from a US Coast Guard Senior Chief maintaining deck armament on marine patrol craft at the mouth of the Rio Grande. I have been amazed by it.

The "Caig DeOxit®" of corrosion product:

I'll take your word docc on it's brilliance but the cost over here is extortionate. 

Ciao

It's only recently that I've noticed how sexy the curvy lines are on the V11s from the rear, but I must admit, I think there is a design conflict when the reflection behind you is measured in acreage

Rizoma snobs.

Y'all boys are good *sports*! :thumbsup:

Thanks for tolerating my mirror spoof. ;)

Here is my actual set-up (early CRG barends with complicated machined attachment to the factory Sport clip-on weights):

Yeah, it's wide, but its low.  Worthy of a proper Blues Bassman. And bogus poet . . . 

Your bike looks great. Bad to the Bone!

I use CRGs on my Scura. 3" mirrors. They work well. It was tough though to get them from stop spinning. A little silicone and a washer worked pretty well.

I, for one (maybe the only one) am looking for a rear view camera setup with a single or dual screens atop the gauge cluster. I mean, you're gonna do a head check anyway, but since every car now has a backup camera, why not a rear view camera and no mirrors? I know someone will post a link here… ;)

Mirrors are so old fashioned.

I am pretty sure I am going NOT gonna get this . and I have squandered a lot of $ .

New tech is very costly. A year or two will make it more affordable, more refined, more practical.  At its current price, it cost more than 6 of my 7 bikes.

It is expensive but as you say the costs will come down. It's about time the helmet caught up with technology a little and this stuff looks real world usable. Plus you can ditch the mirrors.

Wot? New technology with no bulky, awkward, Luddite, analog, doubly redundant, back-up system? Where is the Moto Guzzi thinking in that? :whistle:

Thanks for posting what I wasn't smart enough or remember how to ...

I just search an image, open it, and right click for the action menu (whatever that is actually called), and select Copy Image Location -> paste into the reply. The image remains hosted at the source. One issue is when the source takes the image down, it goes blank here.
