Any hand grips better than stock?

Hello folks,

Just curious if any of you have gone with an aftermarket hand grip on your 10R?

I've searched a bit and haven't really found anything, unless I didn't use the right key words?

Anyhow, I'm not interested in chrome ones, or color matching or anything like that, just something that is maybe slightly more comfortable? If the stock grips are as good as it gets, then so be it, thats fine...but if there is something that might be a little better, I'd love to hear about it.

Anybody running any type of GEL grips?

Thnx.
Rem

I always liked Grabon foam grips. They are larger than stock diameter. They color coordinate well with your outfit . . . as long as it is black.

I'm using Pro-Grips (714 ??) gel grips made for dualsport bikes. I just use a razor to cut the ends off.

I have these in blue on my bike and I really like them. They are very comfy and cut down on the vibes.

I have the ProGrips 725. For $12 it's worth every penny. That and proper control settings keep my hands from going numb.

It's not the bike, it's the rider.
