Love the handlebar change. Has changed my riding position a bit too, but with the previous bars I had this awkward not quite upright position, but not leaning forward thing. I'm enjoying the change for now. Thanks Chip for your great write-up. I'll eventually get the mirrors too.

8,

Glad you like it bro. After two years with my CB11 set up like this it's still my favorite bike. I never tire of riding or looking at it. Cheers.

Are these mirrors available in Chrome?
If so, would you have the part number by chance?
Thanks

Alain, you'll find the P/N here but I've no idea whether you can get them in chrome. I doubt it.

Pulled the trigger on the mirrors finally. Was really getting sick of the mickey mouse style and also the complete lack of visibility I had with my shoulders obstructing my view constantly. I feel much more attuned to my surroundings now that I have this expanded view. Also added the SW Motech crash bars. New Progrips (a Ferret-inspired standby). I think things are finally coming to a close in the farkles dept:
