The most interesting place I've seen someone put a mirror is strapped to the back of their hand. The guy could move his hand around to get the view he needed and it didn't seem to get in the way of his riding.

I mounted mine to the grip ends and they work very well. Very well made too.

I ended up putting kolpin hand guards with mirrors in them they are under 100.00 and work well. If wife has lights on on her atv i can just look quick and tell if lights still behind me . ( so i know i have to try and go faster to loose her.. she is like the terminator..lol)

I wanted something low pro and not on my bars. We will see how well it works this weekend.

I definitely like the look of that. I often pull a trailer and that setup would be handy for backing. Let me know how it works.

The mirror works great for a quick check to see if someone is there but it’s a little to far away to get good detail. It works out perfect for what I wanted it for but could be to far away for your purpose. It’s a $5 bell bicycle mirror from Walmart so no great loss if it doesn’t work.

I went with Powermadd Sentinel hand guards, and they have a mirror available for them. The mirror can be rotated behind the grip for extra protection when things get tight.

I like those Sentinels! Did you need the Tri-mount kit?
