does that only come as a license plate frame?Installed a Vololight brake light. Will test it out Sunday.
those are awesome..........are they visible from the front and the rear?Added M-Blaze disc LED bar end turn signals and blacked out upper forks. Similar to what WillRide has already done to his Scout.

And rode about 240 miles.
i also have these mirrors, by the way , i found i no longer needed the extensions with the bikemasters..........Today I received my new mirrors and installed them. I have had repeated problems with the OEM mirror on the right side breaking in the plastic housing around the adjusting swivel, and the cost of the new mirror/attaching tube is so ridiculous I decided to look elsewhere. After some looking around and a tip from one of the other regulars here (h/t @Rainmaker) I opted to go with a set of
BikeMaster Lined Oval Tube Mirror - Chrome KS-A60CNC which I ordered from Powersports Superstore via Amazon. Here's the results:

The install was very simple - adapters were included in the set. Took about 15 minutes, requiring a 14mm wrench for the adapter jam nut and a 3/8in wrench to tighten the adapter piece in the mirror stem (9mm was too small, 10mm too big. Had to make do.) If you look in the close-up of the lower angle on the mirror stem, you can see the socket-head allen screw - that took a 4mm hex wrench. I have these mounted on a set of the mirror extensions that were discussed here in one of the forums a while back, so that I get the mirror out far enough to clear my shoulders.
A couple of additional observations on these: the mirror glass in these has a slight tint to reduce glare from headlights behind you at night. I could even tell that when I backed it out into the sun to adjust the mirrors and take some photos. I think I am going to like that. The mirrors themselves are about 1/2-2/3 the surface area size of the OEM units; while I might have preferred them a bit larger, I really like the lines of these and they had a surprisingly wide field of view from the seat. The swivel on the mirror back is the real deal - all metal, about 3 or 4 times the range of motion on the OEM, and a very snug fit. I don't think I am going to have problems with it vibrating around on me, or breaking in half when I try to adjust it.
ok, where did you get the bars and cables? looks awesome...........Installed 11"mirror extenuation of course. Last Sunday actually. Road all week with my own bars on my new Scout. So comfy and what an attitude change
hard to tell in the pic, but all the lights are parallel across (same height from center to ground). after your post, i went and looked and as you can see in the second pic, the directionals can be lowered about a half inch, which i did, and i like it better (thanks!). the only way to go lower than that on my setup (and keep the driving lights parallel with the headlight, which is what i wanted) is to mount the directionals below the triple tree, which according to my "dirt line" would be possible, especially since the oem mounts are rubber. as for the lights, i just happened to find them at autozone when shopping for other things (they are on their website). the only thing i dont like is they are plastic, but they do say they are waterproof. i used some extra windshield fork clamps and some mounts off an old set of foglights to get them on the bike, as they are just regular truck flat-base mount lights. so someone elses setup would be different (you know, where there's a will, there's a way). i have been looking for some metal driving lights to closely match the headlight (only smaller) and these are all ive found so far.I like them, I'm just thinking the location of the directionals seem out of sorts. Any way to mount them below the driving lights?
Which lights are those? Do you have a hyperlink for us?
pic please?Took off my bar end mirrors and put on some Drag Specialties black Stealths. Loved the looks of the bar ends but kept bumping into them
Rode to Milwaukee with my brother and visited the Harley Davidson museum. As I pulled into the MC only parking lot I was greeted by several people who wanted to check out the Scout. The HD museum is a pretty neat place.
Today I got back home from a ride across Europe to Istanbul and back. 4700 miles in twelve days!!!
lol, think you guys got on the wrong thread , these should be on the "did you ride today", pretty cool though...ride safe!Rode to Milwaukee with my brother and visited the Harley Davidson museum.

where did you get those?I was grinding the hell out of my pegs, so I modded these a little and got them to work. Way shorter and still supports my foot.
what are you going to do as far as a tail light goes? what seat is that?
