Push the mirrors out. I cannot see anything behind me and within 30 or so yards. I like to keep an eye on whatever is behind me in case I have to twist the wrist. I'm 5'10" 205 andI have to lean to get an angle to see directly behind me. The trunk doesn't help either.

Pushing the mirrors out an inch or 26mm on each side would be an improvement. Changing lanes in particular would be easier and safer.

Now add a passenger, arm rests and flags and you really have a blind spot. My answer, those small stick on concave mirrors you can get at most auto supply stores. There's lots of room to stick them on, down in the lower right for me left and lower left for my right. Now, at a glance, I can quickly determine if something is behind me and needs my attention. Yes it takes practice to use them and be effective, but then what doesn't on a 'Wing.
