I too am totally satisfied with the Aprilia mirrors. I also think they work/look better than stock... give them a chance, you'll like them.

Aprillia mirrors

I too have the Aprillia Tuono mirrors. My original Wee mirrors wouldn't hold their position. The base was a little cracked. I heard about these & how they helped with buffeting as well. They were about $50 something apiece. So I figured, why not. I've been very pleased with them.

Agreed. Adjust the Aprillia mirrors so the car behind you in in the middle of the mirrors, and you'll be fine. The stock mirrors do the same but also give you a big dose of pavement and sky that isn't really needed. And they are big, square, and not very attractive. Just my 0.02

No, more like chewed out. I've been chewed out before ...

So that's what they're for! I was using them to check my helmet was on straight!

My bar end mirrors were less than $20 with shipping and they have worked great so far.
