They seem to match your bike, but when it comes to grips I am all about comfort and like stock style grips as well as anything out there.I absolutely hate Kury grips, too much metal and chrome,Chrome don't get you home.Vanilla and chocolate I guess




If you see it on my bike I did it

I like the color alot. Not sure how comfy they are. Now that i have kury iso grips...i am not too impressed. Im not a big chrome guy anyway...i like my bike dirty.

The bike has leather grips on it now I like them but the have drawn up from living outside and there is rubber showing on the ends. i have used the kury grips before if the live outside the black comes off on our hands and like denny said not too comfortable. i am putting together my ape hanger setup and will need new grips. for long trips i wear gel gloves anyway so comfort isnt a problem.

Comfort is key, but those look like a nice Bling for your bike (colorwise and all). Cheap enouhg if its a fail you are not out to much and if its a Win, they will look good.

Are those Anodized Aluminum? They look like they'll go great with your paint job. Hopefully they'll feel good in your hands.

Well they sure are pretty. (Ghey that is....)


LOL...Seriously they just do not look comfy, but they would LOOK great on the bike.

Have your levers anodized blue too BTW....
