Yeah, don't get me wrong...I think you should be able to see a little tiny slice of your car because "you never know" I guess?  But I'm talking about the ones that are literally half car/half road.  There's no need for that and you miss a big chunk of your blindspot.  

 

I set mine where the only way to see a tiny part of my car is to lean forward.

Yeah, I like having a tiny sliver of car visible in each side mirror as a reference point. 

I also like having a large aftermarket convex mirror for a rear-view that allows me to better see my blind spots.

Convex mirrors on both sides is still the best mod I have ever done to my car. I have no blind spots. At the point where I can no longer see a car in my mirror, their front bumper is at my front door, and I don't need the mirror.

Seems like you could lose a motorcycle in your blind spot if it's nearly the length of a car. I've got my mirrors set so if your front door is even with mine I can just about see the back door in the mirror. That's effectively no blind spot.

You can’t. Maybe I put it the wrong way, but at the point when you are looking at the mirror and can no longer see the vehicle in the mirror, you can see it out the side window. And at the other side of the mirror, I can see two lanes over. There is zero blind spot. It’s like having a wide angle camera at my front bumper looking back.
