    For me they are for looks only. 1, they tend to vibrate more, 2, my bl**dy elbow will block the view and 3, they will bang into car and van mirrors when filtering.

    Well folks I got the oval mirrors pictured by struv above from the bay offered by banjoholic for $200 US incl shipping. This seller is an excellent seller - mirrors arrived after about 14 days (UK to US); packaged excellent in a shipping box, plastic bag, and gobs of bubble wrap; original unopened untouched by human hands Triumph box.

    These mirrors are top notch quality, heavy metal, flawless mat black paint, high gloss glass - typical Triumph quality. The mirrors fit easily to the mounts on my 2023 Bonneville T120.

    Alas and alack, the outer edge of the mirror is 1 and 3/4 inches further inboard than the stock mirrors; thus, less of a view rearward and more of a view of my shoulders. Have decided to stick with the stock mirrors.

    If they vibrate more than OE mirrors on stalks you have not fitted them correctly.

    Bar ends all the way, and what does it really matter if you can’t see out of them? (Joking)
    I don’t have any problems with mine and they look so much nice imo.

    No worries struv; I was able to fine tune the stock mickey mouse mirrors and get a decent view rearward; still have the oval ones in their original box and packing and will offer them for sale when I get un-lazy.
