The right side mirror I cracked the glass a little after picking the pick up. It fell onto its side offroad. The left side mirror was actually adjusted by the ground a bit, but I moved it to the location shown in the picture because I did not want it to be smashed and busted if I dropped the Tiger again on that hill. I loosened the controls so that I can move them by hand (still takes some doing, they don't just flop around). I saw some of these http://www.amazon.com/Emgo-20-64580-.../dp/B002305A1E mirrors at the local dealer and am considering putting them on the Tiger as they fold inwards.

I have dropped the Tiger on the right side since cracking the mirror and it has not gotten any worse, surprisingly. If I were to do it again I would just take them off and put the EMGO mirrors on from the start.
