I run a single CRG on my left side.

Here's a pick of my old S3 with the bar end mirror. I run the same setup on my 09'.

Looks sick man! I definitely like the circular mirrors on the Speedies with the round headlights.

Yea, it's pretty surprising how much you can see. You have a very wide field of view. I don't mind it at all for around town and riding in the twisties. I'll admit that it's not great for busy highway riding, though. Luckily I rarely touch highway on this bike.

Yeah, I used to ride an R6 and I replaced the stock mirrors with Rizoma Prototype mirrors and having the mirrors our slightly wider and lower than stock made my visibility much better. I also think being able to fully articulate the mirrors to angle them to see the most also made them better. Also they didn't blur at all. I hope the CRG arrows don't blur, but I think having them at the widest part of the bike maximizes visibility.
