Have had a set of Explorer mirrors on my Trophy for a few years now.  Like some others, the stock mirrors alone were OK, but with my long torso some of the view (especially the periphery) was blocked.

The two mirror sets combined provided a completely unobstructed and nicely comprehensive rear view.

Well worth the investment in my opinion.

I've just ordered a pair. I'll know who to blame if I'm not happy with them  :151:

Finding them to be pretty good. Worth the money. Good quality, no vibration, excellent view. They'll be staying.

I know this is kind of out of the box thinking, but has anyone tried bar end mirrors?

The roads are a bit too narrow around these parts!  :038:

My stock mirrors work fine except for a lack of "blind spot" coverage.  I installed a set of small MaxiView blind spot mirrors to take care of the problem.  I have them mounted on each side of the dash, not on the OEM mirrors, BTW.

I also have Maxi-Views installed, but on the standard mirrors, and they work fine for me.
