Well with the intro of the 48 there's been a replaying of old style becoming new again. So yesterday I was riding the Nightster and was thinking up those under slung mirrors. Thinking... I wonder...

Sorry for junky phone pics...

So here's stock, traditional placement

Under slung

I think it looks cool. Its different and will take some getting use to when riding. But still have great view behind me and maybe even a better view next to me in the blind spot zone.

What ya think?

I think you should ask your wife since it's her bike.

I think I'm heading out to the shed to flip mine. ;-)

You also have to swap sides... Right one goes on left side and vise versa.

Nope... don't hit. trust me I checked that first off. put on another 50 miles today on it... hard to adjust to lookin so far low...

I like it. I used to have mine flipped when I had mirrors. I'm still looking for one tiny one to be legal.

Yeah I always have to balance my ideas against the wife. Its suppose to be her bike. If it wasn't for her I'd have forward controls on it.

Seeing as I just found out we're roughly the same in height...is your wife considerably shorter than you? I have forwards on the Deuce. I really wasn't sure if I was going to be cool with them at first due to my "low center of gravity"...now that I'm used to them, I couldn't imagine going back to mids.

Got my new black "asshole" mirrors, I know need pictures- not computer literate so you'll have to ask Tim,(Telecast). Tried them upright and not much to be seen only about 1" of mirror usable on each. Tried a flip like I had done on the 2000C and get incredible view but having a tough time "looking down" and taking my eyes off of the road. Will run some more and see if I can adapt.

Hey, at least you got your mirrors!

Based on how long it took them to ship, mine should only be 2 or 3 months away!

Well there are a set of mini apes in store for the Nightster soon. So then the under slung will really look good.
