Mirror solution on DL650 to see beyond my shoulders

First....I put on a set of dirt bike bars on my 650 to give my wrists some relief. Stock bars are cocked in such a way my wrist are not comfortable being bent outwards. I needed more of a straight bar effect for my long arms. I went with Mini Hi Bars to get a tighter straight bar with only 28" of width....and the mirrors now hit the windshield.

This width creates a problem for my mirrors as I can't see behind me at all. After searching many shops I found Pro Sport mirrors with long stems. They push the mirrors out just beyond the handgrips for about $18.95 each.

One other note: I have a Madstadd bracket and a Cee Bailey 23 1/2" on the bike. These mirrors allow you to tilt your windshield back pretty far without hitting.

Here is a look at everything:
