    There's been lots of discussion about mirrors. Here's a link that will give you plenty to read and lots of suggestions > http://www.google.com/cse?cx=partne...j8793917j7#gsc.tab=0&gsc.q=mirrors&gsc.page=1

    I like motorcycle mirrors. I'm fortunate in that there is a big motorcycle salvage yard in town. They usually get about $5.00 for a mirror and the handlebar bracket. They're the best mirrors to use on a motorbike.

    That little bar end mirror is probably okay. I'd have a hard time with it being so down low and close to my hand. You can do better.

    Here's where I buy mine from, www.bikeworldusa.com

    They have quite a few to choose from. Mostly better prices than that also.

    They have one particular mirror that's meant for scooters. A basic round, maybe 33 inch, mirror on a long rod with a good handlebar mount. I'm happy with it. But I've been happy enough with a few others that they have to offer.

    go to a motorcycle shop that deals with custom bikes - 10 or 12 $ should get you a really good one

    That one is my fave, it's a good low profile mirror that doesn't accent vibration, folds in easy if you clip something & has a nice clear view - it's even reversible should you want one on both sides.

    Both my commuters & my taddy have run that mirror, defo worth the purchase ;)
