Thanks for the replies, everyone!
Unfortunately, I did what I always do, and bought a bike just when it became unbearable to ride here. It hit 106F last Sunday and felt like I was riding into a hair dryer.
Also, people drive like idiots in Phoenix (and I was born here). I've had 5 "idiots" pull right out in front of me in the last week while riding to and from work. I almost had a tow truck climb on top of me on the last one, but he saw what happened, waved to me, and passed me to honk and yell at the idiot who practically made my flip trying to stop fast enough.
After that, I'm planning on taking an advanced riding course to learn how to deal with the horror-show that is Phoenix rush-hour traffic. Phoenix seems to be made up of people who are from everywhere else, so they all act like they own the road in their own way.
Anyway, I think I'm going to stick to weekend mornings for a while, and drive my land-boat 3/4 ton Suburban during the week. Let these fools pull out in front of that!
Thanks again, for all of the welcomes and advice!
: Thanks, I like the look of the Aprllia Tuono mirrors. They have a unique shape and the stock ones seem too small and mostly just get my shoulders.
: I'm in N-Central Phoenix, near the I-17 & 101. We picked this house because my wife wanted the quickest escape-route to head up north for camping in the summer. When it's 115+ degrees, our pool feels like a bathtub...
: Thanks, I'll look at the KTM mirrors before making a decision. I'm hoping to find some that stick out further than the stock ones that I feel are way too short, even if they didn't move and vibrate to a useless level.
