I run Avon grips with a throttle rocker. I like them better than the Iso grips on my FXR

I have the harley "get a grip" chrome ones. I was looking at Avons but at the time I found several posts that people were having issues with Avon grips and TBW.

I run the Harley black heated grips. I get my comfort from my leather gloves. They have a better friction coefficient with the grip and don't wear the grip out from oily sweaty hands. I try and never touch my bikes anywhere without some kind of gloves on. Whether it is riding gloves or nitrile gloves. Our oily fingerprints can stain a nice finish.

Are you looking for comfort? Try grip puppies.

Vibration damping? Kuryakyn ISO Grips

There are gloves with padding in the palms too.

The Harley catalog is loaded with different grips also.

Deer skin Motorcycle gloves are the most comfortable and rugged. Plus since deer are the bane of our riding safely on back roads, the more deer products we buy the better. ;)

Not trying to be a dick but If you always wear gloves (I do too) then what is it about the grip that you want? Looks? Comfort? Both?

I only ask as maybe I am off but when wearing gloves, I can't feel the difference between a $300 Grip and a stock Grip - That and I don't "grip" tight when riding and if I am on the Hwy, CC set and hands resting on the grips

Just curious, looking to learn

I am a huge fanboy for the Kuryakyn Deep Cut Comfort Grips. Love the look, but more importantly I love the large diameter of the grips and the rubber dampening pads that make it real easy to have a relaxed grip. I've had them in both chrome and black, and my wife has them on her bike. Says the larger girth feels oddly familiar :laugh:

I wear elkskin gloves

used to wear deer skin, didn't think about the ability to help remove more forest rats from the backroads, good idea! Don't run across much elk where I ride.

I like the idea though of a larger diameter grip, that might be a help! Now I'll have to spend some more $$. That brings up a question, should the grips be the same style as boards etc? On the last softail I was going for a more uniform look and added all Tribal collection, but have noticed some do and some don't go for the uniform look, just looking for input :)

I have the Avon contour grips with the spiked ends. They’re great for people with above average sized hands.
