Rear view mirror?

What do you recommend for a rear view mirror on a 420 rancher AT? Sometimes I drive on forest service roads and county roads, and it'd be useful to be able to see behind me without looking back.

EDIT: It also looks like I need a horn audible at 200 feet. -- although airhorns work in a pinch I guess.

Often thought about a mirror also for trail riding so I can watch my kids instead of having to turn around to see if they are still behind me on their machine.

My buddy has one of these on his 2012 Foreman and likes it.(his state requires a mirror and horn to license them for street use...wish Texas would do that).

I had one of these. Outside of being annoying on the grips, it lasted one ride. It sticks out and a tree took it as a casualty.

Since I got less than one hour of use out of it I figured I'd come here and ask for suggestions before I buy another, but maybe it was just my riding, I don't know.

I like. Do you have a manufacturer/model #?

Doubletake Mirror

Although by the looks of it, it will cost around $40

I think it would be $41 for where he wants to put it.

I JB Welded an extension onto an old car side mirror and mounted it on the rack. Probably wouldn't last long in the woods but works well on the prairie.
