Not really sure the bars would take the weight at speed either :435:

I would assume that all they are designed for is stall lay down/slide maneuvering hiccup :430:

Nothing else could be expected with a a bike of this weight surely!!! So anything is better than nowt at all.....even at £400+....... weigh it up against the price of panels etc

I'm surprised there's nothing standard fitted. Anyone from Triumph listening?
Coming to the Trophy from a Pan (1300) it feels quite naked without something to stop the plastic scraping tarmac.
Dropped the Pan twice (zero speed) but in both cases was astonished to see the wing mirrors well clear of the ground.
The plastic covers were really cheap to replace and the pannier lids had a plastic lower half.
The design and placement of the 'wings' was such that they were pretty much indestructible in a low speed drop.
The Victory Vision is a good example. Why don't all tourers have tip-over wings? 
It's got to be £1000 to replace a mirror, fairing lower and pannier lid.
