You can't agree with me. That makes you more of a jerk. I hate your face.

Here is for all the non believers in what I was talking about...


STOMPGRIP Traction Pads for streetbikes make gripping your ride incredibly easy, and therefore require less energy to hold on to the bike. They are custom designed and engineered to fit tank sides, tank covers, tank tops, tank rear sections, frames, & more.

Features:
•Increased bike control. More contact between the bike and rider.
•Reduced fatigue and arm pump. More lower body grip and less upper body stress.
•Ultra-clear proprietary elastomer material. Developed to meet STOMP’s exacting specs. (pat. pend.)
•Also available in black.
•Aggressive volcano profile traction bumps.
•Paint and graphics remain visible through the traction pads.
•Non-abrasive material. Designed to wear down and be replaced like a tire. Does not wear leathers as compared to griptape.
•Pre-molded with rounded edges that resist peeling.
•Super strong 3M peel-and-stick adhesive.
•MADE IN THE USA

Oh wow! Now that I've seen their advertisement that says they have aggressive volcano profile traction bumps I'm TOTALLY convinced these are needed.

You've shown me the light.

YESSIR...

This is the key element that I was trying to explain..

•Increased bike control. More contact between the bike and rider.
•Reduced fatigue and arm pump. More lower body grip and less upper body stress

a company's ad can hardly be called "info."


Unless....well....if that's info than the intake tornado really DOES increase fuel economy, and so do the fuel line magnets!

Derek Wagnon, #17 AMA, Wins Three Expert Class Events While Using Tank Tredz

Derek Wagnon, sponsored by Bridgestone, Lonestar Trackdays, and Komodo Gear used Tank Tredz for the first time at the CMRA Event in Cresson, Texas this past July. He ended up walking away with 1st place in expert class Super Bike A, Super Bike B, and Formula 1.
general feedback on a different forum was that stompgrip will provide too much grip and make it more difficult to adjust positioning appropriately while the less aggressive grips on a smaller area provided excellent help on hard braking to prevent sliding and excessive forward pressure. that would also apply when trying to keep your body forward on hard acceleration.

interesting review on the techspec.
http://www.trackdaymag.com/Articles/...Tank-Pads.aspx

i'm actually looking for some feedback on this topic and trying to gather some more information, opinions are great but arguing over differences in opinion isn't really helpful.

Yeah, but it still said "iT WILL HELP" thats why I didnt get the Stomp Grip, it covers more of an area, but Skateboard grip, you can cut a small peice out for what ever area you want to put it.

Po Po, you just need to read and educate yaself cause you dont know shyt..
