Too dorky for the LT?

I wonder how these would look on the bike?

Thumbs up

I dont think they would look good on the LT, but they would look awesome on the Triumph Speed III which I hope to add to my stable this spring!

And they cost over $110.00...
Besides it adds width to the already wide bike. This will be an issue for the lucky Kalifornians who can split lanes!

I spit lanes, but it is close on the LT. The question is would they look DORKY. Answer yes! Also it will be really nice to look at the back of then in the stock mirrors. leave that stuff to the sport bikes. They can't see out of their stock mirrors.

If you want the extra view get some K1200RS mirrors and mount them in the holes on the switch housing....

Yep. Then remove the stock mirrors and gain almost a foot of lane-splitting clearance.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Humm def better on a cafe racer or sport, but yes, a bit dorky for the LT's slick lines.

Hey Channing, I couldn't figure out why you had a Jedi as your avatar. Then I realized it's not a Jedi, but probably still starts with J.

Bad guess on my part. Oh well. I still can't figure out why they put a pic of Jesus on all those "cigarette" rolling papers. Or why he's tall and white when they were all Jews of Middle-Eastern descent? Or why the disciples all had proper English names?

I guess religion is just too confusing for me.
