Are you proposing the power of telekenesis??😨
If so,what would happen if you put an eye patch over your right eye......would the left mirror loosen instead?

Don't be silly Jinx!
You're still using the right mirror more than left mirror, but now with 50% the previous use. So you double the interval between tightening 😁😁😁

But riding in France,the opposite would be true...thus negating the need for tightening at all...ah mèrde...💩💩

The only thing is with thread lock (which is a good idea) is that I have to move the mirrors to get my bike round the back of JP's, they get stuck along with the gear and clutch levers, I need to put some risers on to get past the gas box, it's an on-going problem 😑

I have a similar problem with the gate at the side of my house,leading into the back garden.
Verity requires a wiggle to clear through,Rudolph ditto..Marilyn's ample proportions(and fairing) mean mirrors folded flat against screen,plus her nipple - like indicator pods require pinpoint accuracy lest they snag both sides at once..ouch! (Who knows,perhaps she enjoys the rough treatment i inflict upon her generous curves??)

If you look in the mirrors cross-eyed they may tighten themselves instead or at the very least confuse both as to which one your using and therefore negate the need to get spanners out. 🤔
