The Pros and Cons of Bar End Mirrors
Before parting with your hard-earned cash, it’s worthwhile weighing up the pros and cons of those Triumph Bobber bar end mirrors. On a positive note, many bikers claim that they experience far less vibration than with normal mirrors, even at high speeds. What’s more their position provides much improved visibility, making your even more aware of what’s happening around you and therefore making you safer on the road.
However, on the flip side other riders are quick to point out that bar end mirrors can take some getting used to. That’s mainly because while stock mirrors are just an easy glance away, riders have to physically move their heads in order to get a clear view of what’s happening in their bar end mirrors. But that’s nothing you can’t get used to. It’s just perhaps bearing in mind that things may feel a little strange at first.
In addition, bar end mirrors can make your Triumph Bobber far less streamlined, and they are much more susceptible to damage given their position on the bike. Whether or not this affects your decision is of course dependent on exactly what you use your bike for. For the speed junkies, among you this could be crucial, while this is unlikely to affect the decision of those who use their bike for purely transport purposes.
