    From time to time I order stuff out of China. Tracking will show it getting to Canada in 4 or 5 days. Then the magic words "Sent for further processing". I have come to find out that is Customs. 5 to 40 days later tracking will continue to my house.

    It happens. Myself, I am currently waiting on spokes for my 1973 OSSA. For whatever reason, this order from the UK is taking longer than all the others.

    Possibly all your magnets are stuck to my spokes, and the entire lot is twirling around, stuck magnetically to the post office conveyor system.

    I will say the magnet mounts are neat, but still prefer my bolted on aftermarket mirrors on the RTS.

    The OEM mounts for the mirrors have been an issue ever since it was first introduced on the 2010 models. You have to tap this way... then that way... then some other way... and end up wanting to take a baseball bat to them.

    I am so happy to have these. I usually had no problem with removal other than the occasional mirror flying across the garage. However, that reinstall was horrendo, first 1/2 hour of attempts, fiddling with the prongs, uttering some words that the grandchildren should not hear. Finally walking away for another 1/2 hour, coming back and it slips right on, I swear that they program the blasted things to work that way.

    My Magic Mirrors were shipped April 10 and just did a track on the package and it has finally hit the USA. Currently is in Chicago, got there on the 20th. Getting closer to delivery.

    I ordered mine a week ago ( the 21st ) and they are in New York now. Getting close, can't wait.

    Got mine on the 26th, took about 35 / 40 minutes to install them, after finding all the necessary tools. Really a cool idea, will come in handy in the long run.

    Mine was also shipped on April 10th. Just checked tracking and mine also arrived in the states. I assume Chicago. Hopefully will have them soon.

    Here is some info about international postal tracking some of you may find helpful, or disconcerting, whatever the case may be. I'm waiting for a phone case coming from Poland. Here's what the seller has to say about tracking.

    BUT - tracking show only the way in Poland, USPS turned off this possibility of tracking for incoming international mail - Please read this https://community.ebay.com/t5/Archiv.../td-p/23324720
    Apparently this has been the case since 2014 so even if Russel did give a tracking number it probably wouldn't do you any good.

    Got my Magic Mirrors yesterday. Shipped April 10 and arrived April 26. I guess that isn't too bad. But boy was the package really looked like it has been through hell. The shipping label was half peeled off and torn. Just glad the contents were still inside. Got the Magic Mirrors installed today and only took me about 45 minutes total. Just a word of caution about the magnets. These magnets are strong as heck. Don't ever get 2 magnets together. Don't ask me how I know. LOL They are hell to pull apart. Thanks to Russell Culey for a great product and for an easy install.

    There isn't no way these will ever blow off. It takes a really hard hit to get the mirror to break loose from the magnets. I don't see any reason to attach a tether, but to each his own.

    I also attached the tether (The insurance guy inside me was yelling loudly... )
    When I had to pull a mirror off the bike: I loosened the mounting point on the bike with a T30 torx bit, and pulle the tether loose from up there!
    (MUCH easier than removing it from the mirror body! )

    Thumbs up Magic Mirror Mount

    Well, it just took 22 days to get the mounts. Watched the video and took me about 20 minutes for an easy install. Great product. Just hope the mailings get faster.

    Default Mailings

    Mailings before 10 April were basic post so may take forever
    april 10 mailings were the better,more expensive,6 days.......unfort this batch was held over in Melb for around 12 days then drip fed to the conveyor so difficult to appraise effectiveness so subtract 12 from the elapsed time to get an accurate time taken,these also have tracking which I think is useless anyway
    april 18 mailings feedback has been really positive,( using the same mail rate but with better packaging)taking on average 7 days which is good from tassie

    re the tether
    the girls in the office are working on a simple tether(it's just a piece of string) and may put a vid on website next weekend
    the orig tethers were difficult and time consuming to make,fiddle to fit and remove and largely useless,but I do understand that some still want a tether regardless,so if we get away from quick release and go for unscrewing the top Tupperware screw,then it's really simple to make up in numbers

    thanks. Russ

    Default Tether

    For those who ordered after the tether was no longer included in the kit, what are you using as a tether?

    Irv, that will prevent loss of mirror .... but with the length of the cable what is going to happen to the mirror in say a plus 50 mph speed. The shorter the safety line the less the mirror can bang around ( see my post #5 above )....... jmho ...... Mike

    Ideally: the tether is short enough to keep the mirror from flopping around too much...


    ...But long enough to keep you from tearing it loose!
