Much like when driving a car, vision is key to both your defence and safety when riding your Triumph Bobber. You may have a near perfect view of what’s ahead of you, but rear mirrors are they’re known enable us as riders to spot any potential hazards that may be outside of our field of vision and also to be aware of vehicles approaching from behind.
Of course, they’re an element of our bikes that can’t be compromised on by law. In other words, every motorcycle is legally required to carry a mirror on both the left and right side, irrespective of the top speed of your motorcycle.
Why not have some fun with your mirrors?
Most motorcycle mirrors are either mounted to the handlebars themselves or to the front fairing. This, of course, is all dependent on the particular model and brand of the bike. In most cases, handlebar-mounted bikes are held in place with what’s known as an adjusting nut.
It may sound obvious, but it’s important to get the tension of the nut just right, since the mirrors should be able to be adjusted relatively freely but should not be able to flap around in the wind.
But before making any changes to your default mirrors, it’s important to review both your posture and riding position in order to work out exactly which replacement rear mirrors will work best for you and help you to maintain a suitable level of comfort during your ride.
Of course, we appreciate that comfort is not every rider’s number one priority, which is why we stock a range of Triumph Bobber mirrors to suit each and every one of our customers’ need. Some may opt for a more retro-style design, while others may go for something durable with a high shine finish.
