CB Antenna's - Pic's and recommendations

Been a while since I've had to think about this, but I'm going to be updating my
gear, as well as needing some advice - and I'd like to see some pic's of your antenna's
and mountings.
I'm planning on taking a simple approach to this and right now looking at possibly doing
1 1/2 to 2 ft. single rod on, on both mirrors.

Now, I'm not dead set in my ways - but I'd like to see what others have done and could use some ideas for some clean appearances.
If anyone already has that setup - what sticks are you using and how do you like them?

I've seen that thread before. I didn't want to thread jack it as I was looking more just for Antenna mounting locations for EX's rather than anything else.

Ah yes, I forgot you have an ex. There's a few mirror mounts and such on there. Good luck, im looking at mounting up a cb soon.

Did you ever figure out a mounting solution for your ex? I saw a setup on a jeep a while back and it made me think of this.. He used a couple short pieces of flat stock, drilled and bent, then mounted them behind his tail lights.. He dremeled a small part of the tail light to clearance it but it looked good..

I haven't yet. Was more focused on getting the new turbo and I.C. pipes and gauges in.
Once I get the F650 dash is when I was going to put the CB in.
But I think I'm pretty much sold on putting in two, 2 or 3ft with the clamps on the mirrors.
Then, just tidy it up a bit. Not to mention I don't want to have to run 15+ feet of cable from the back of the EX...
