I am ordering them. I saw them on one of the parts guys bikes at my local HD. I really like them. Really comfortable. Kind of feel like the Kuryakyn ISO grips but alot beefier and more padding on your hands. The black is anodized so it looks like black with a chrome type shine... very cool grips from what I have seen. Now I just need some cash for mods LoL.

I have them and find them very comfortable.

A word of warning: The Avon grips are shorter than standard grips. If you have 1 1/4" bars that step down to 1" at the controls, there will be a 1/8" -1/4" space between the controls and the larger diameter bar. It does not bother me, but I know a lot of people are very anal about the smallest details and would not be able to handle this issue.

I was going to get these grips, but HD has come out with a new grip for this year that is very close in looks to the Avon and Performance Machine grips for $90. Alot cheaper in price and they are a direct fit for our bikes. I am not a promoter of HD parts, I usually like after market custom parts, but for the price these are real nice and they have plenty of rubber for cushion.

DO you have any pics or links? I have not heard anything about these new grips and would love to see them before I go with Avon.

Got 'em. Really like 'em. I did them in black on my black bars, with black levers and mirrors...look is pretty bad ass and they're comfortable with excellent grip.

Very nice! I am impressed to see the moco actually design something useful for under the 100 mark!

I am waiting till March for these. Go to your local dealership and ask the parts dept for the new supplemental catalog for this year. They have come out with a few new things that are cool and descent priced. Yes the MoCo is finally starting to come on board with new designs and prices.
