Bar-end mir­rors look cool, but of­ten they of­fer a pretty crap view of what’s go­ing on be­hind you. The bar-end mir­rors on the Bob­ber are dif­fer­ent, though. They ac­tu­ally work, giv­ing a great view of what’s go­ing on be­hind with only a slight hint of lower arm in the cor­ner of the mir­ror. All good, well un­til the right-hand mir­ror broke! I re­turned to the bike one morn­ing to find the right mir­ror loose on the stem and some­thing rat­tling inside. A new part is on they way from Tri­umph, but for now I’m down to one mir­ror and over-theshoul­der checks. Tri­umph re­placed the mir­ror un­der war­ranty.
