Driven grips

anybody use these, and have any feedback on them? I picked up a set of their "race" grips for free, and I'm thinking of giving them a try.

the best "race" grips are stock ones on the R6. I usually use the hard Renthals but the R6 one's are the zul.

I've heard of several different people using the renthals. I hadn't even heard of driven, but they were free.....

The D3 grips are ~$50. The grips I got for free are the gel grips, they're only $20.

How exactly do you safety wire a grip? My current left grip slips off if its gets damp, and its irritating.

I got free driven grips when I bought my pazzo's. They are nice and squishy but wear down very fast. Mine were smooth in several places in less than a month.

Is that a month of constant streetriding or a month of being parked in the garage with 2 trackdays?

Maybe. I won't be buying another set right away. Sure they are nice and mushy and sticky but even with daily riding to work on that I was unimpressed to see how they got smooth and not so grippy after less than a month. Then tie downs on the trailer without a canyon dancer really fcked them up. I will be trying something else next time around. The only reason I got them in the first place was they came free from motomummy with my pazzo levers.

FWIW the D3's that Chris has look a bit more quality stuff then the free gels they send out with the Pazzo's. And yes Corey is a top notch guy who runs a top notch store. I know his price has went up on the Pazzo's since I bought my set but AFAIK he still offers the free priority shipping and the free grips with every order and his customer service is second to none, when it comes to online stores sometimes bigger is not better.

He's also in Round Rock. So I kinda feel like I'm supporting a "local." I buy a lot of from Motorcycles Unlimited, but for tiddly things like levers I don't have a problem buying from motomummy. Its just not worth the long drive to Motorcycles Unlimited unless I'm going to drop some serious coin.
