Great, now you can identify what you are riding before covering them up with your hands j/k

Seriously, good grip? Comfort? Ease of installation? Whadda ya think?

I haven't had a chance to try them out yet but I will update as soon as I get a chance to ride, it's supposed to rain here for the next few days. As for installation, it was a piece of cake. I cut the old grips off (did't have any compressed air), cleaned the old glue off with rubbing alcohol, sprayed the grips with some hair spray and then slid them right on, they were a little bit tight getting on so I used a rubber mallett to "gently" slide them on.

I would agree.. The stock ones are not the most comfortable one I have ever used... Anyone use "Gel" Grips? if so how are they?

Got my first chance to try them out this morning, they seem very comfortable, feels like a gel grip. I only rode about 10 miles though, I should have more info later today.

I have been considering getting these grips, but have been afraid of how they will feel after a good 100 miles on them.

Took the bike in to get the recall's done today (finally!), I rode for about an hour and a half before I took it in, and I have to say that I feel less vibration then with the stock grips. Also the hairspray trick worked great there was no slippage at all, overall I would recommend these grips for anyone interested in them.
