Zapkat-

Glad they got there quickly, and before Christmas. I hope you and your son will enjoy them and ride safely. We will all enjoy hearing your ride report, once you get to put a few miles on them.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Best,

Dave R.

UK Rigpig-

Hey Geoff! Glad they finally arrived and you got them fitted up OK. Pretty soon you guys in the UK will have an Original Grip Buddies Authorized Dealer. Have been talking with someone over there in the UK power sports world who is interested in representing my grips. Will advise when we make things official.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Best,

Dave R.

Wanted to ask you if you ever ordered a set of my SUPER SHARKSKINS from me? If not, happy to fix you up. Even though they are the same thickness as the originals, they seem much thicker because they are denser and more durable, so you may see them as an answer to your request for more thickness. By all means call me if you have any questions.

Hey Dave,
Not yet. I figured I'd finish wearing these out first :) up to about 13k on them and still not wearing further than last time. I figued there might be some ultra-super sharkskins in the future

I'll be in touch soon, I'm sure.

Glad you're getting good, extended use on the original model of my grips. Seems that folks are pretty happy with our current SUPER SHARKSKIN model, so feel free to order that one when the time comes.

Happy and safe riding to you!

Best,

Dave R.

You are very welcome. Bottom line is that no matter how quickly I ship something (especially internationally), I am at the mercy of the USPS in terms of how quickly your package gets delivered. The hell of it is that USPS has been shown to be the best alternative by all measures.

Glad you got 'em, and many happy and safe riding miles to you.

Best,

Dave R.

Super Sharkskin Update

I have received a lot of pm's and emails from Inmates here who report that they really like the SUPER SHARKSKINS in terms of the added feeling of "substantialness" and overall increased durability over the original OGB's. Then the other day a guy contacted me to say that he had bought a set of the SS's, but had not had a chance to try them yet because the originals were still in fine shape at 13,000 miles and 15 months. Go Figure?

I guess the bottom line is that whether originals or SUPER SHARKSKINS, there are lots of folks out there very happy with their grips and loyal to the brand.

Thanks to so many who have bought over the last several years, and who have given me an opportunity to contribute to their ergonomic bike comfort.

Best,

Dave R.

Going to do another post on our blog about the farkles we have installed on our '13 F8's. I now have enough km to make a really informed impression about how much we love the SS. Coming soon Dave I promise. Leslie


If you see typos it's my phones fault!

Can't wait to try these! The grips on the F700 are also really skinny. My hands are typical women's hands; I can't imagine how cramped the grips would feel with large NBA-sized hands (you know, where they can grip a basketball easily)

I think you will be very happy you got my OBB's. Please let me know what you think.

Best,

Dave R.

Have been looking for your ride report on the new SUPER SHARKSKINS. Did you feel that they "filled" your hands satisfactorily? Many have reported that they no longer felt the need to have a death grip on their handgrips once they started using my OBB's, and actually made them safer on their respective rides because they were no longer distracted by handgrip discomfort. Candidly, that is what we found with the motorcycle safety students we worked with, and for whom we developed this product some years ago.

Your thoughts?

Dave R.

Hey you transplanted Yankee. Why haven't I heard from you in a while. I called up the dealership where you were giving your presentation the night you gave it, but somehow I missed you.Was going to surprise you. How bout your ride report on the new SS's??

Signed,

Sad and lonely in Saratoga Springs (LOL)
