Pricey mirrors but they work
It's taking me a while to get used to these mirrors, partly because the stems inevitably block a portion of the stock mirrors on my RT. Maybe they will grow on me in time and with more adjustments.
Sent them in back - using 2014 R1200GSA Mirrors
Mirrors look good, fit well. I sent them back because they can only be adjusted using a wrench. I tried my husband's mirror's on and they worked like a charm (very similar looking to these) and you can adjust them without using a wrench. Problem solved. I ride a 2017 r1200rt.
Petforms as advertised
Satisfied. Adds to appearance of the bike. Easy to install and adjust.

Easy to install, perfect for dual sport bikes. Can be used on and off road. They can be folded all the way in for real off road trips. I am very happy with them !!!
Since my new 2014 BMW RT mirrors do not provide a safe view of traffic, I researched alternatives. Found these great mirrors…easy to install, adjustable, anti-glare, low vibration, tapered design doesn't detract from the bikes design, great price and last but not least improves safety by giving you a great view of traffic. Notes: From a safety standpoint BMW should produce the bike with these mirrors installed. I use the OEM mirrors to view my blind spot.
Mirror Flash on R1200GSW
Very nice product, much more adjustable and steady then the OEM mirrors.
My only complain is the luck of the rubber boot to cover mounting hardware to create a cleaner integration look
love the adapter...hate the mirrors.....nonadjustable on the fly...put them on...took them off...going to be returned.
Wondering If I should keep the adapter and fit GS mirrors on them.
I purchased one of these "aspherical" mirrors with the hopes if lessening the blind spot on either side. Despite doing a quich head check frequently, I gain added confidence from a second source. I'm disappointed. I was expecting a more convex curve to this mirror, and although it does have a small rounding to the tip where it narrows the benefit gained is hard to see.
Really help see behind you.
After I installed these on my R1200 RT, I can really see what is behind me very well. Once I installed them, I really came to see how inadequate the fairing mounted mirrors are. I am still fine-tuning the adjustment and there is a little low speed vibration, but having the enhanced rear view is great.
Excellent mirrors to remove the RT blind spot directly behind. These are very necessary on these models.
I may be a bit dense, because it was not clear to me that the 2014 RT had to have additional adapters (another $80 or so). I ordered the mirrors, then had to order the adapters separately. Other than a wrong part sent with the adapter order, it all came out OK. Mr. Plam made an effort to make things right with the order.
The mirrors are a great addition to an RT (2012). The stock mirrors give a great view of your hands. I have these configured for a wide angle view, and the stock a narrow angle.
Almost five stars
Great for folding up when lane splitting, my only wish is that the mirror was adjustable while riding. Once I got them adjusted to the right position they're great.
They are difficult to set up but they will rotate up and down while on the highway so for me they were adjustable. They do vibrate at low RPM's but at highway speed are fine.
Not what I had hoped for
I purchased the Flash mirrors after a riding buddy got them and raved about how much he loves them. After instaling my mirrors and heading out on the highway, the first thing I noticed was how distorted the image was due to vibration. I moved the mirrors to their shortest length and still had a very distorted view. The stock BMW mirrors are much better, and in my opinion offer greater safety.
Does the job
I bought these after test riding a new K1600GT. The stock mirrors on my R1200RT were dismal. I could never see the car directly behind me. Forget about any blockage from carrying items on the seat. Also, I did not like having to avert my eyes down every time I needed to look in my stock mirrors. These do the job. Yes, it was a pain to setup and adjust properly but once you dial in the setup you can forget it. A bit of vibration but I am still pleased.
Gain some, lose some!
The purpose for this purchase was to provide rear vision when I carry camping equipment on the luggage rack. The original mirrors are blocked if anything is carried across the luggage rack.
These flash mirrors certainly provide excellent rear vision once properly adjusted, however they basically make the original mirrors on the R1200RT partially useless, as the stalk of the new mirrors obscure the vision of the stock mirrors.
I changed the field of vision on the stalk mirrors to a much wider stance in order to pick up vehicles lane changing into my side.
The flash mirrors are very steady at speed.
This is the only product I have purchased from Wunderlich that I would not recommend. Installation is simple, but even minor adjustments require wrenches (forget the minor adjustment at the traffic light!). This is great inconvenience every time you load the bike differently. The price is lower than BMW mirrors, but quality is also lower. To hide the nuts at the mirror mount, you need to purchase the rubber BMW cover like the ones used in the GS bikes. I would recommend purchasing BMW mirrors for GS motorcycles instead.
I Can See
Outstanding quality and they perform so well. Couldn't believe what I was missing if you're riding an RT they are a must
These mirrors completely make up for the lack of function of the fairing mounted mirrors. They are easy to install once the original clamps are replaced with the mirror adapters. They look like they came with the R1200RT from the factory, and once they are installed, the fairing mounted mirrors can be adjusted to give clear unobstructed views of the traffic approaching from the rear in the left and right lanes of traffic. Approaching vehicles are visible in the mirrors from directly to the rear until within my peripheral vision with only a slight turn of the head. One of the best safety devices that can be purchased for the R1200RT. Also the Flash Mirrors give an excellent view to the rear when a wide bag or case is mounted on the luggage rack, something that could not be done comfortably with the the fairing mirrors alone.
These mounted fine but a wrench is needed to make any adjustment which is not to handy while rolling down the road.
On my R1200RT they vibrated to much and have a strange field of view.
Just did not make the grade for me. YMMV
Nice Added Mirrors to the R1200RT
Very easy to install with the added adapters Mirror provide plenty of adjustment (IN-Out, Up Down) to make them perfect for your rear vision.
Excellent mirror. Works best on the right side of my 2011 R1200RT. Keep bumping into it on the left side when dismounting.
