Even though I am left handed, I only use my right hand with my mobiles. I do not have enough room to mount my radio on the left side of my truck. Having said that, if I had a right hand drive vehicle, I would likely use my left have for my radio.

I was considering buying a right hand drive vehicle so I could hold the mic with my left hand, but decided against it :). I got used to using my right.

I remember one of my customers had me extend the mic cord, he mounted the mic on on the hang-up box which was mounted on the door of the truck. Does that qualify as a lefthanded mic? Sort of handy, just reach into the window to pick up the mic when working outside the truck.

Most all mobile installations have the mic so it is accessible from either seat, in the middle.

I can extend the mic (I have a 7 ft cord). I'm running out of space in the middle and since I'm left handed I was thinking of the car door or the edge of the dash.

I also have 2mics ones from a yasesu and ones from a bearcat ssb cb.

Make more room in the Center, or Ditch the cb. Very simple solution. ;)

Seems to me like it'd be easy enough to run an extension under the steering column along the top of the driver footwell, even under the plastic fairing, and have it pop out over there, and stick a mic clip on the dash to the left the steering wheel, no?

Yeah, right. That would be on top of my list of things to do when I get really, really bored.
