Additional mirrors

I've read the posts from years ago but does anyone have any good suggestions on which type of mirrors work best in addition to the stock mirrors. I have an 2008 LT. Planning on using the holes in the handlebars to mount the mirrors. No looking for anything that sticks on the windshield or anything like that. Suggestions?

thanks

Re: Additional mirrors

The best are the mirrors from the RS with the kits that mount them in the holes in the handle bars. I've got a set on and love them. I can see up close with those and I tip the other mirrors all the way out for a wide angle view down low. JM2CW

Thanks. Just ordered a pair from A&S complete with nuts and washers. Can't wait til they get here.

Re: Additional mirrors

Is this the PN of the mirror you guys are talking about?

If so, anyone with a pic of how these look when mounted?

Re: Additional mirrors

Not sure about the part number, but these are the ones that were on my last bike and have been moved to the new one.
