Grip Protectors

I very seldom wear gloves which causes me to wear the grips out quickly. The left grip has already been worn smooth on the back side at 14000 miles. The heated grips are expensive! I used grip puppies on my Wing but hate the thickness and the heat reduction they cause. I bought this and put it on a few days ago, love it so far. No heat reduction and looks great. I hope it lasts but it is inexpensive.

Now that I am home and can use a keyboard , I'll finish this post. On the left grip I put 2" heat shrink tubing. It looks good and is pretty thick, I think it will last a while too. While the heat shrink looks good, the other looks better, however the other is rubber and does not breath as good as the heat shrink. I'm leaning towards the heat shrink.
