I won't ride without a mirror. I probably look at the mirror just as much as ahead, if not more. Part of that is a function of the route I use.
On my drop bars I find the bar ends don't clear the pannier.
I use this, I can get it out far enough to see around the pannier. - https://www.treefortbikes.com/Axiom-...r-Mirror-Super
Yeah there's vibration, but as said earlier, I'm not trying to read license numbers, just see what's coming.
I tried a helmet mirror and didn't like it as well as it blocked some forward view.
