Do the Tip Over Bars stick out wider than the mirrors?

IIRC, no....but not by much.
Bags, yes. Mirrors, no.

Thanks.    :beerchug:
Everything I build to attach to a bike needs to be no wider than the mirrors.
Figure if I can thread the needle with the mirrors out, I don't need anything down low catching.
My trailer is just a tad less wide than the mirrors of the wing at 43.750" I think Connie is just under 36"? Been a while since I measured her. (she gets self conscious about her girth)

Threading the needle was what I was thinking...
I am in California so I can split.

Unless you choose to put Kuryakin pegs on the tipover bars to improve the comfort of long-range riding.

But if you have FedEx knock over your bike with a truck, the bars can be moved.   >:(

I ride in Wisconsin so I wouldn't be performing any lane-splitting soon.  Ride Safe!

Here's a shot my wife took a couple of years ago, directly from the front. It shows how much the mirrors stick out beyond the bars. Photo was taken from about 100' away, so the relationship to the bags should also be about right (i.e.: not much parallax error).
No I wasn't riding in sandals  :truce:

Splitting lanes is just crazy.  Never know what the drivers are going to do.

Fixed that.

FWIW, I have the MCE tip-over bars and they don't stick out past mirrors. I lane-share almost daily and find the Concours to be svelt and nimble.

You mean, "Svelte and nimbl." 

The letter 'e' was in the wrong spot.


"Fixed that."  - couldn't resist...
