If it turns out it's really worth taking mirrors off, I may go for a combination approach...

- Probably a set of folding mirrors so I can retain full mirrors for city driving (my current pair are fixed, and I have a set of folders from the red Forkenswift)

- with one of those round convex mirrors stuck on the aft end of the driver's side mirror for use when folded.

- Probably an addition to the inside rear view mirror

- and more shoulder checks for the passenger side
