Convex Mirrors?

Anyone thought of adding a couple of those stick on mini mirrors used for trucks pulling trailers and the like? The idea being to expand the limited view we get with our stock ones? I don't suppose there are convex replacement ones made.

I believe the original mirrors are convex! At least on my Phoenix they are.

You can find blind spot (convex) mirrors for motorcycles. I don't feel the need for them because I think I can see okay using what I have. I used blind spot mirrors on my BMW R1200GS but I had all kinds of bags and luggage on that bike and they blocked the view.

I feel like I can either select a view directly behind me, or what's in the next lane to my rear quarter, but not both. I glance-check my rear quarter anyway but would LOVE a wider view. I think stick-on's might look dumb, and I doubt they make any OEM or substitutes...
