Opions and ideas for mirror issues?

Just picked up my new Vaquero and have noticed that the mirrors are lacking. I see more of me than the road behind me. Options or ideas? Kawasaki need to offer some mirrors with longer stems. Looked at a few set on ebay and they look cheap and have plastic heads, I bet those are quality...

I just ordered a pair of these and seems they are very popular with the Voyager & Vaquero group.

I used these (the longer ones I think) on my Voyager as well. I did get a wider field of view but I did get a bit more vibration at hwy speeds......just something to consider

I did something interesting with my left extender. I drilled and used a countersink to merge the extender with a Techmount section. It made a perfect location to mount a radar detector.

Don't really know that I need a detector as slow as I ride, but I already owned the darn thing so I just HAD to mount it, right?

Friends tell me I need to get in shape. Round is a shape, isn't it?

Thanks guy's, I ordered a set in black and we'll see how they work. My dealer knew of nothing that would extend the mirrors out, I think these will do the trick and I like the idea of mounting other things to them, neat.
