Ape Under Hang Mirrors

Any of you fools running your mirrors flipped under and if so, what kind? - I tired flipping the stockers and all I could see was my arm pits or the lane to either side, 5 feet away - Not the kind of rearview I am use to

Must admit tho, with the bars high and mirrors up top, you can see EVERYTHING

On my Heritage I had 20s on her and the mirrors flipped, but they were the stockers. About the same with the view, but I usually rode with just my throttle hand up. Could see alright then.

On my RG, I just left the mirrors on top. Thought about getting a set of handlebar clamp mirrors and see what I can do with them, but just ain't done it yet. If you find something that works, let me know...

Bingo - I had the dealer flip 'em for me before I left and by the time I got home, flipped the sum bitches right back - To be honest, not a lot of mirrors out there really blow my skirt up except the old school Circles

Found these from doing some searching on various boards - Just ordered them and hoping for the best - Not to shabby on price and if they don't work, I'll flip them over to the Road Glide

Licks Cycles? - They also seem to have a pretty sweet DOT 1/2 Lid too but I am already good there.

Mirrors are one thing I like to stick with HD. I found the aftermarket ones never like to stay where I set them. Those licks mirrors look cool, hope they work for ya!

Thx Man - Me too - Most of my "Fuck Around" Bikes I just yank the mirrors right off but dig the look of a small circle under hang mirror with Apes

I have the Kuryakyn Sycthe and I had to run the 1" extenders to clear my elbows so I could see comfortably. I powdercoated the whole set up black and I have had these mirrors well over 7 years and combined mileage of 90K between two bikes they have never come loose.

I can't even imagine running mirrors on the top side of my 12" apes now.
