Damocles Touche', Buildit! LOL.

A tool-room mockup only; shown to illustrate relative sizes and shapes only, in no way representative of the optical quality of deliverable mirrors. The relative sizes and shapes of the mirrors illustrated remain valid.

The only optical abberation I've noticed in the mirrors mounted on my bike is slight distortion at the extreme edge of the reflective surface; YMMV but I do not notice this condition when riding; I find the wide rectangular mirrors most effectie.

(Perhaps I should have used Mount Palomar, vs. the Hubbel telescope, in my allusion/simile!)

Further, the Ken Sean mirrors have a slight "wide-angle" curvature, enhancing the rear view area coverage. I installed dampers with my Ken Sean mirrors (on '07); don't know about mounting 'em on '08's and up; believe they'd work o.k. without dampers, given the change in mass and moment of the design, compared with the OEM products.

Try 'em, you'll like 'em!
