    Original Grip Buddies recommendation

    Sorry if this has been said before, but allow me to recommend the Original Grip Buddies:

    http://www.originalbeemerbuddies.com ??

    I've a had a few imitations before these, but these are the real thing, and the others pale in comparison. The Grip Buddies are well made, they are very easy to install, and they work very well. Hands and fingers are more relaxed due to the lighter pressure needed to hold the grips, and the bigger diameter, especially on the throttle side, of course. They dampen vibrations, and they are overall soft and sweet to the hands. Give them a try. And the service is A+. No, I have no vested interest in the company

    I would like a set of these but I suppose it would make the heated grips ineffective?

    I have them on my GS and the heated grips work fine, even on low.

    I like the fact that the adhesive sticks the "buddy" to the grip, but don't have anything nice to say about velcro. Still, these should work far better than the similar grip covers I've used that don't have the adhesive.

    The thick grip puppies I got from CA Sport Touring fit me better since I have big hands.

    How do those work with heated grips, Tom?
