    Hi there,

    I just got a 2014 Trophy SE today. Decided to sell my Triumph Tiger and Harley Electra Glide to get one bike. So far it is perfect. Love all the features and the quality of the bike. I have to get used to the mirrors, or get some extra mirrors.

    A brief intro: I'm in Wisconsin and work at a cheese production plant, love the Packers, been married 33 years with 5 grown children.

    I look forward to meeting people on this site, either in person or virtually.

    Thanks in advance for helpful advice, this forum looks awesome.

    The stock mirrors did not work for me either.

    Get handle bar mirrors. There are threaded holes ready for them, but each has a black rubber plug to remove that might not be obvious until you look for them.

    Hi Cheesemaker and :400: to the Club !

    This Forum is indeed awesome - in my opinion the Best !

    Mirrors - the Brake and Clutch fluid reservoirs on the handlebars
    have threaded holes to accept mirros ( remove the rubbber blanking plugs ! ).

    Thread size is M10 x 1.25 and are both "right hand" threads.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks all for the kind welcome, I am glad I joined this group already.

    I will check into mounting extra mirrors on the handlebars, any changes noted in wind buffeting?

    Thanks
