Upgrading from stock Mirrors

I'm looking to upgrade the stock mirrors to something, just not sure what yet. I've looked at Rizoma and while I love the way they look $130 to 160 PER mirror is a little out of reach right now. I've looked into the Ducati Performance Viper's as well, slightly cheaper without giving up too much quality I assume. Any suggestions? Not sure if I'm a fan of the bar-end ones or not.

Oh yea, I'm also a 6'2" rider, so a little on the taller side, it's kind of a pain to have to bend over or duck my head down to see what's behind me. I'm also sure that there are other threads around so feel free to direct me there too. Thanks!

The Rizoma reverse retro barends are incredibly good, so far as letting you actually see what is behind you. The difference between them and stock mirrors is amazing. So far as safety is concerned, they are a must-have.

Apart from that, they look great - although that is a matter of personal preference.

Well worth the expense. Maybe you should stop taking the wife/girlfriend/significant other out for dinner for a month? Or, better still, make her pay...

Oberon 75mm streetfighter mirrors

$60 bucks and you get the mirror and the bar end.

I love my CRG Hindsight Billet Mirrors and Bar Ends. Great field of view and a clean look. Hard to beat IMO.

I have the CRG mirrors too but I went with the Lanesplitters because they fold in which is nice when you're lane splitting.

Edited for better pics.

Thanks for the suggestions. You've all talked me into bar end mirrors, now I'll just have to figure out how much I feel like paying ha. Thanks again!
