I ordered a pair of CRG LS 3.2 mirrors for my BMW R Nine T. I've been spoiled by great past experiences with the older LS mirrors on a prior bike and the new ones are even better! They tolerate more vibration than stock, offer a wider field of view, and they look fantastic.
The biggest downside is cost of the mirrors and whatever mounting solution you go for. To make it clean, I purchased RhinoMoto bar end mirror mounts. I love the setup, but I'd be hard-pressed to call it a good value at ~$200.

Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder & waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Kriega US-20 dry pack features: 100 waterproof main-body RHINOTEK: abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON: abrasion resistant reinforcement DRYPACK: removable taped-seam inner liner 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC milled, 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Acetal ITW Airloc quick-release buckles YKK water-resistant zip on side pocket Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder & waist straps US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 20-liter capacity (H)15.7 x (W)10.2 x (D)7.5 inches

I got sick of wearing a backpack in summer heat, where the straps end up killing the airflow I need. As such, I've wanted a Kriega bag for months, ever since Hellforleathermagazine.com ran several stories on them. The combination of build quality, secure attachment, and quick release buckles really appealed to me. The US-20 bag has enough room for my work laptop, a few books/notepads, work shoes, water, and a whole bunch of gadgets and more.
Once the subframe mounting straps are installed, four tabs stick out about 1" from the passenger seat and allow the bag to be securely attached very quickly. It might take a smidge longer than tossing on a backpack, but it's more comfortable. Better yet, it's a totally modular system, so I can order more bags and attach them up for longer trips.
Yes, I recommend this product.
