Excellent write up, and the pics were just what I needed to see before I changed mine.

The grips you put on were what I grafted on to my old VFR, and then were stock later on a previous GS. My 07 GSA stock grips suck, too small for my hands, this looks like just the ticket.

Larger diameter, but I'm used to holding big stuff...

$20 for a pair form Max BMW. I like them cause they send me M&M's... I'm a sucker for chocolate...

Oh, and I get them pretty fast too.
Got these grips from the dealer yesterday, $20 for both.
R and R'd them in about 10min. Hairspray worked great!
Very easy job!

Hey, how you doing?
I got them at DetBMW,they are not an item they stock.
I ordered right before they sent in their weekly(?) order
and got them the next day.
You going to Stockbridge this year?
