I like the Progrips that I just put on my bike. They cut down the vibration a little compared to the hard stock grips.

I have Pro Grip 724 Sportbike Grips
They started to kinda peel up (top layer away from the colored inner layer)... only on the top of the throttle side. I put a dot of rubber cement/shoe goo on there, and they are at ~17k miles now. They look a little worn, but not worn out.
