Shoutout to Grip Puppies

On a ride the other day, I realized I've got like 4 years on my grip puppies (foam grip covers). They are cheap. They work.

The stock hand grips are too narrow in diameter and far too hard for long, hard riding. So, if your hands cramp up, think about it. I would have been happy to get a few thousand miles out of them. Considering they have been on an uncovered bike for 4 years and still work like they did on day one?, that's pretty impressive. No, I do not profit from this, I just like to pass on info about products that work.

Plus, they are made in the USA (I'm pretty sure).

Agreed! I put my Grip Puppies on 3 years ago. They're still good. It's the first farkle I installed on my KLR. The stock grips are way too skinny (IMHO).

I also have been using grip puppies for something like 4 years now. They are excellent! Cheap also. They make your grips large enough to stop your forearms from cramping or aching. The larger or looser you grip the bars the better it will be.
