One thing that I recently saw, that piqued my interest was the "strap-on" mirrors that are available in the snowmobile market. That have a 3/4 inch hook and latch (Velcro) strap that snowmobiliers strap to the backs of thier hands. In this application, the rider had it strapped to his bar near the rear brake reseviour , and it looked as though he could see underneath his right arm. Plus, the mirror was concave (or was it convex?) so it showed a very wide angle.
I did not ride with it, but I am thinking about it.
(What? Rear brake res on the bars? Thanks for not busting me in the chops, whoever did catch that!)

I actually wanted a mirror that works and eventually chose the dual star fold away mirror. So far, it has worked very well. It is also low and out of harm's way which is a good thing when riding in the trees. Check it out.

flush against the handle bar . It was a little rectangle about 2.5 inches by 4 inches. When you looked down you were actually seeing under your arm not over. It would never get hung up on brush . Anybody ever see these or know where I can get one?
