After a trip to my dealer yesterday I decided that this Forum was the next stop. I find my new FLHT to be somewhat dangerous in one respect, the shorty mirrors. I noticed that all of the touring family the dealer had on hand used the same shorty mirror. Can anybody see directly behind themselves with these? I really am not all that wide, but I can see myself and /or the lanes on either side just not a vehicle behind me. In checking his inventory of custom parts there are a few different types available but mainly in how ornate they are, otherwise there seem to be two choices shorty or long. I believe that a stalk one to two inches longer would provide all of the adjustment necessary, but the long version really stick out there. I suppose there are no such things as adapters to lengthen the stock ones. Being something so basic to riding I am probably the only one who fell off the turnip truck, but just how do you all see them cages bearing down on you?
