mirrors on bars? really?

i dont much care for the location of the mirrors. i would rather mount them up on the fairing. any kits or easy ways of doing this rather then just drilling holes and crossing my fingers it turns out ok?

Honda Nighthawk-50mph+raccoon=totaled
1986 Honda Magna V45-sold to a tween for his 1st bike=future totaled bike
1999 BMW K1200RS DAKAR-I'm 23 years old and this thing will probably be running after I'm dead, it is a Beamer. Love it.

Mirrors on the bars come in handy a lot of times, when your at that odd angle at a stop light or stop sign and your head can not rotate far enough to see what is coming, just turn the bars. There have been many times that this has happened to me and if it were not for the bar mounted mirrors I would have had to actually through the stand down get off the bike enable to see what is coming. It sounds stupid but it happens, although, if not wearing a helmet you could probly get away with faring mounted mirrors in that situation,
