The mirrors on the 400 are conventional mc mirrors and wil react the same as any other mc. The mirrors on the 650 are designed to fold back for storage. A light tap may or may not damage them. IMHO if you're tapping cages, you're cutting it too close.
The Burgmans have small cutouts to allow you to comfortably put down your feet. Combined with the space of the mirrors, there should be adaquate space to put your feet down. Again, if you are getting to where you are worried about having space to put your feet down, you're cutting it too close. I'd much rather 'waste time' / be late than risk damage to me or my machine. Sure I can fix/replace the Burgman ... sorta hard to replace my body.
