Mirrors - 95 750SS

This has probably been done to death in the past but I can't find a satisfactory answer.

I am doing my IAM and am hindered by the fact I can't see anything behind me without lifting my arm out of the way.

Can anyone recomend a pair of mirrrors that give me a view of something other than my elbows. Also they should look OK, use the standard fixings if poss and not vibrate.

Too much to ask?

I think Brancato do mirror extenders which are nothing more than blocks that push your mirrors out a bit further. They look quite good as they fit the style of the bike.

I have been using VFR750 / CBR 600 mirrors - they work well but look a bit large, still look better then the Brancato extensions - however, I bought a pair of mini bar-end mirrors from Infinity at the weekend (30)- they are excellent once you get used to the new location and the fact that the images are small due to the convex shape.

I've just ordered a pair from Brancato as this seemed the simplest (and cheapest) method to try first.
