Ditto

Ian, has been super responsive with some issues I had. By far the best addition to the bike. No issues with the XD4 helmet.

You shouldn't be disappointed. Popped right on in a matter of minutes.

Grips over OEM

I just slid the Renthal grips over the top of the OEMs with a light spray of window cleaner. Slid on easily and grips still heat up to more than I need.

Nicks and Claysville

Well, those are now on my list of places to try. I know gravel down to both places so that'll be easy and hopefully tasty.

Thanks gents!
