I've been thinking of putting some type of blind spot mirrors next to the stock mirrors, haven't seen anything that worked good that I liked. Anyone have ideas maybe with a pic? I did see one type but they won't work with my Baker mirror wings.

I don't have a picture handy, but I've got "Hot Spot" mirrors on the lower outside edges of my mirrors. They're about 2" in diameter, with a peel-off sticky back. They're less than a dollar apiece at Wal-Mart. They give a wide enough view you can easily see traffic on either side of you before it's out of view of the mirrors.

Thank you everybody for the quick replies. I have a couple of good ideas now.

Convex Mirrors

I went through the same thing on my 4X4. The little stick on mirrors just don't do for me. I changed to convex mirrors on both left and right hand sides.
They are great, but a word of caution, they do make things seem further away than they are. After a few weeks it all seems normal. Reading the Multivex blurb they seem to have overcome this. Anybody riding with these at present?
I am quickly building a list of "gotta have" items that are not available here.

I do turn my head....everytime. However I am developing a problem with my neck that limits my left turn ability. I'm OK to the right.

I feel for ya. Someone needs to develope a combination handwing/convex mirror assembly. I'd be the first in line.

I have the Multivex mirrors and like them a lot, they definitely show you much more of what is behind you.
It's funny, I still lean forward to see the outermost edge of the mirror only because I'm used to doing it with the original mirrors. With the Multivex it isn't necessary.

Since I installed REG risers fully half of my mirrors only show me my hands on my grips. If I adjust them outward I see absolutely nothing in my lane behind me.
