I just got Progressive 440 HDs and Metzler ME880s put on my 06 883R. NOW, I have a bike I like. Still scrapes a bit in some corners, but is much more stable and confident in the corners.

That along with the the Supertrapps makes this bike a pleasant longer distance bike for me. Now to get some saddlebags...

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, what is best for big and tall?

I switched the bars on my Roadster to some narrower bars from another model, keeping the stock mirrors.

Also installed Vibrinators so I have a pretty good view at just about all rpms. But the view is of my shoulder to elbow.

On the V-Strom they sell "Mirror offsets" that widen the mirror base by a couple of inches so that we large humans can see.

Are there aftermarket mirrors or something to offset the stockers?

Turn them down, 48 style. I did it on my Roadster and am extremely happy with the result.

Too far from the primary line-of-site for me: I live in a city.

Give it a try! It’s 5 minutes job and they actually work way better than in the "correct" position.

Large head, long stem, convex mirror.

I have a pair of these, or at least an earlier version of these. I don't know why it says not for 04-10 XL models. I also ride in city traffic and they work well.

BTDT, not even close .

I bought some long-stem rectangular mirrors made by V-Twin Manufacturing.

They do work way better in that position than the stock set up... if...
you have the luxury of time to lower your head and scope them out.

In heavy urban traffic, you'd be having your way with the tail end of a bus or a cab.
