driven grips are pretty decent. They are cheap too the just wear down rather fast, but it seems most gel grips are that way

"Soft Grips" I think is what they are called. Patrick has them on his wall.

What the man? The grips I gave you weren't good enough for that "comfy" feeling?

+1 on the gel grips of which Mr Patrick speaks, they are nice.

Martin, what do you think about my ruckus grips? I think those are the Pro grip softs...it's what I run on just about everything. I love good grips...even if you have to swap them out occassionally.

Do the rest of you guys use grip glue? I have horrible luck using that stuff! It dries up too quickly and I have 1/2 the grip installed by then!

I have the Pro Grips 719 and they feel pretty good. I had Motorcycles Unlimited put some grip glue under the throttle grip since it kept rotating.

The throttle one you gave me is ok but the one I already had on the clutch side is murdering me.

I'd like to take a look at those in fo-realz life, if I may.

I've recently put some spiders on mine, and they're nice. Not the most comfy, but better than the stockers.
