Is there an alternative? I have the same problem with them. I know that MV is going for the tight race look, but I cannot see anything out of them when on the road. They need to be a bit wider and also need some kind of independent ball bearing adjustment because when I hit bumps in the road or the suspension is working in any way, images in the mirror are a vertical blur. Absolutely no good. Japanese bikes got this one figured out at least.

They are not good, I just tuck my elbows in.
If you are concerned who is behind you, pull the clutch in, it does improve your vision

The mirrors are that good I couldn't see I was being chased by police at over 130mph. I couldn't understand why every one in front on me was jumping out the way.

If you have them correctly adjusted, you will be able to see the full width of your arm at the elbow, your jacket pocket, a bit of your leg, the road verge on one side and the traffic going away from you on the other.
But if you tilt your head a little, tuck your elbow in and pull in the clutch, you should be able to take a quick peek at what's behind you.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

I have adopted the "Chicken wing" approach. that way I can see if there is something behind me. Couldn't tell you what, as they just vibrate. But it's better than nothing.

I use the CRG Arrows. Small, great profile, extends your viewing pleasure beyond your elbows
