I had the stock Maguras when new and joked that I could use them to buff the inner tubes in case I need to patch them. Then I put on the big soft ones, I called them titty grips, but I often didn't wear gloves in those days. Gloves made them feel HUGE.

I've used the stock ones for decades now.

I wear gloves all the time so the stock ones on whatever bike. I guess my hands aren't that particular. If my hand or thumb goes numb it is the way I am gripping or sitting. I correct that and hands are happy again.

I've grown fond of the "Grab-on" foam grips over the years. BMW also made a similar, fatter foam grip. Just my preference.

You can get the same grips (which happen to me current favorite grips for airheads) For about $8.00 at your local cycle shop.

Nothing fancy They are ProGrip Rally (or Rallye) come in colors as well.
My improved GEN II Amazing Grips I currently sell are actually designed by me and are now made in my own molds. The special synthetic rubber formulation is proprietary. In fact, we had to invent some new manufacturing processes to perfect the combination of resilience and "tacky" feel these grips deliver. These are exclusive to Randakk and not available from any other source.

These are what I got for when I replace my heated grip elements/set-up (sometime soon hopefully before it gets cold again...)

How do they differ from the cheapies sold at the parts stores? Mine are actually Italian made (I have a set on my TW200) and I think I paid $8.99 locally for them. I like them because they're slightly barrel shaped but still skinny.

My only complaint is that they have a tendency to wander a bit. I ride with gloves always, so they don't squick me out being a bit soft (hate soft rubber against sweaty hands.) Obviously, I have not secured them with wires like MX riders would. They do stay in place well enough to not bother me or cause a safety issue.

I just ordered a set of diamond grip Magura for my airhead because, like I said I really like skinny grips. I'm getting rid of some age hardened jackhammer grips that are too fat for my tiny hands.

Quite different in many respects. These were developed as a by-product of my involvement in vintage road-racing. I sponsor individual racers ...most notably Vintage Superbike National champion Dennis Parrish. I'm also the class sponsor for the Vintage Superbike Lightweight class. Highly skilled road-racers know the difference proper grips can make for the demands of high-precision riding.

The grip's product features are fully detailed here: http://randakks.com/collections/grip...-amazing-grips

Beyond that information ...the rest is proprietary. :)

I second the BMW sport grips. I swapped my old rock-hard grips with BMW's "newer" sport grips (BMW GRIPS #32721458395 & 32721458396) a couple years ago and never looked back. As I recall I had to removed the plastic throttle insert but managed to retro-fit this new grips to the older bike with very little effort.
