derj: I presume you're asking about the RAM mirrors that I mentioned; I don't see much distortion but they do vibrate just enough to make that type of fine distinction very difficutl at speed. I like that they can be adjusted almost infinitely to accomodate my preference and I really like that they are substantially higher than the stock mirrors. I don't notice any loss of field of view but I do move around a lot on my bike while riding and I can see over my forearms very easily as well as behind and to the sides of me by moving my torso or upper body. I replaced by stock mirrors because the black rubber boot at the base was cracking during the first year of ownership and I didn't feel like waiting for them to fail before replacement. I tried some bar-end mirrors and really liked the view they afforded but didn't like the extra width that I felt that I'd added to my size, so I went with the RAM mirrors. I'd like to say that they are so good that I'll never look back, but that'd be too corny...hahahaha.
