Grip Suggestions

I find there is not much in selection for grips out there in the big catalogues.

Any suggestions for blacked out bikes.

Avon has a decent selection. Will probably be getting a set of black grips for my bike.

EDIT - I ordered these yesterday

Performance Machine Renthal grips. Best grips I've ever had. And rebuildable. The rubber when it wears down just slice it off with a razor blade and slip on a new one for 15 bucks.

It's the first Mod I do. On any Bike.

You have a TBW, that is a post 2008 model? As already mentioned Avon makes some very comfortable grips like this Air-SS:



Btw it is easier to find grips for the old school twist throttle!

I have a set of Black Anodized PM Contour grips with Renthal. I used them for a few months but changed them out for a set of Avon Gatlin grips.
$65 plus shipping CONUSA.
