Interesting product I've never seen...ingenious

Wonder how well it works?  Would be nice to ditch mirrors and the drag they cause.

I like it and I want one but they are out of stock. But not for the typical use shown or discussed here. I stand on the pegs nearly 10% of the time, even riding pavement. With this I could just hold up my left hand to keep tabs on what's happening behind me. Not safe to turn your head completely around when standing at highway speeds. I will probably do some searching and come up with a cheaper ghetto version to try for now. I'll probably attach it to my jacket sleeve so gloves can be removed without messing with the mirror.

I agree that ergonomically it wouldn't work for me and you'd still need the mirror(s) on the bike for it to be legal.

the greatest source of drag on a motorcycle is the rider...... maybe a set of mirrors like bicycle riders have mounted to their helmets adapted to a motorcycle helmet would be more usable . not have to remove your hands from the bars ....

Well.....not so ingenious after all......
I bought for $5.99 on ebay. Tried it out. All I could see in the mirror was my arm and shoulder. Tried to move around and change positions of the mirror and/or my hand, my body, etc. still just saw my arm and shoulder. Also, just the slightest movement of the hand and it moves the image/reflection in the mirror too much. So this one didn't work out....
