I installed the mirrors shortly after we bought the bike. At first it was because the S.O. didn't like the position of the stock mirrors because she couldn't see behind us. Since she has been riding her own most of her life and, since we got rear ended in 2001, she likes to see behind us. I love having the extra view when pulling the trailer. I never need to adjust the mirrors anymore. I have a great viewing area and she can see behind us. I use both mirrors all the time. I went on a test ride to try out a different seat on another bike and I couldn't believe how limited the view was with the stock mirrors. He also had the convex mirrors on the stock ones and they didn't do as much for improving the view as the RS mirrors. It's like having four wheel drive. Once you have it, you won't be without it. I first heard about the RS mirrors on this site. If you are ever in the area, you can ride mine to see the improvement. But remember it's different strokes for different folks.
