Anyone using bar end mirrors on their Thunderbird?

If so where did you find ones that fit, and pics would be most helpful!

Im interested in this as well. Allthough, I have the wide bars on my TBird and wonder if They will stick out to far. I am also considering a smaller lower profile mirror that Joker makes.

Yup, good question. Anyone?

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Thunderbird mirrors

I'm looking to make my mirrors sit a little wider, with the stock mirrors I see mostly my arms and shoulders. Do they make an extension or are there other mirrors that would sit out a little further that anyone has tried. Looking btter would also be good, but my first priority is to be able to glance at the mirror and see what's coming up behind me without having to move my arm. Thanks

TJ Cruiser, I'm glad you asked that question. I have same problem. I hope someone will chime in with a recommendation.

I recently followed the recommendation of someone on this forum and bought the Triumph black teardrop mirrors. They definitely improved my rearward visibility... I could only see my arms before. Now its not perfect, but its very much improved. Plus, they look freakin' sweet

I have to agree with Draeger after riding 400 miles this weekend with my new black teardrop mirrors. Worked much better than the stock and look sharper.
