Another discussion (on helmets and visability) reminded me that I had wanted to get some feedback on mirrors. I have handlebar mounted mirrors- and I'm fine with them, not looking to get fairing mounted ones- but I was thinking of getting the shock-absorbing mirror mounts like these

Another idea I had was to install one or two of the convex mirrors. Has anybody else installed them? General success?

Aftermarket fairing mount mirrors are often reported as being inferior on several counts.

I used a set of aftermarket fairing mirrors until I broke one. They were a waste of $22.00. I could never get them adjusted so I could actually see anything behind me.
I questioned using them but in the end I didn't. The best thing you can do is get real motorcycle mirrors. None of that aftermarket crap. Only stock mirrors seem to have stock quality. Everything else vibrates like crazy.

I agree. Aftermarket mirrors seem to have one thing in common, they are all cheap. Cheap in price and cheap in quality. I have spent more money on lousy mirrors than I would have on one good set from the manufacturer.
