Grips - July 3, 2007, 08:44 AM

I've decided to start looking for grips, since they would be a nice upgrade to my OEM pieces and they are relatively cheap. From the more experienced guys/gals what brand/type do you recommend?

I ride nearly 7 days a week and frequently do loong rides.
and problem spot for me has been my right hand in the palm right below my pinky tends to push against the bar and get sore lately.

you are pushing too hard on the outside of the bars!!! Relax your grip a little and use the plams of your hand. As for grips try Progrip. I have them on all my bikes and they have alot of different types to fit your pimping style!!! I think they have a set to match your jacket!

Order two sets so I can match too!

Dan, the gel grips might help.

Men are qualified for civil liberties in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites: in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity...Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. ~Edmund Burke, Political Theorist and Philosopher

I rock the Rental Medium Compound. Throttle control feels more precise.
