Anyone have Avon Boss Performance grips?

I bought a bicycle a couple years back that had grips that had this shape. They were/are the most comfortable bike grips I've ever had. Now I see Avon selling a similar grip under the name Avon Boss Performance. Is anyone using these? If so, what has been your experience with installation and performance.

Besides the comfort level the built-in throttle boss shape would seem to be a bonus.

Link? Here goes. Nope. Have not tried them. Incidentally, what could have possessed you to buy a Road Glide Custom in the first place, let alone in Candy Orange? Yum Yum, I LOVE it!!!

I have them, they are comfortable, however it was a pita to determine the most comfortable position of the throttle grip. Of course, the left grip remains stationary, whereas the right one has to be placed where your wrist will be most comfortable. I have them on my 02 Road King and opted not to get them on my Glide.
