Sharper Image (among others) sells a nice small mirror about the size of the
Bugeye mirror that installs with a suction cup. I stuck one on at the top of
the windscreen and it works great. I removed the stock mirror which is
pretty much worthless anyway. I think it looks better than a longer rod on
the stock mirror would look.
