Whats behind me?

I have just returned to biking after a 20 year absence. Haven't things changed.

2 weeks ago I purchased a Triumph Daytona 955I after reading various reviews. All very accurate particularly when they stated the Daytona mirrors were crap. All I can see is my elbows without weaving to and throw. 
Can anyone suggest a better option, this obviously a common problem, Mirrors that enable me to whats behind me. Seems a great idea.

Thanks
1. I'm trying to look where I'm going
2. If I needed to turn that much bikes would have swivel seats

rear view

Try pulling your elbows in towards each other when you want to see behind you.

How about extra mirrors? If there`s room around the fairing.
