I think your throttlerocker would work - it just might be a little snug when installing over the beemer buddies. I tried my Go Cruise with the beemer buddies and while it did work, it was just not as smooth as without them. I will not remove the Go Cruise so I'll have to cut the throttle side beemer buddy down in length so it works properly when I put the beemer buddies on for the summer.

Got mine installed...happy so far!

Received my OBBs quickly, installed them quickly and happy so far. I like the texture much better than grip puppies and they don't slip at all. Also, I have my Kurkyan (sp) throttle rocker installed with the OBBs, no issue whatsoever.

Seller is a stand up guy, I've bought other gear from him in the past, great communications!

gunderwood-

Your grips going out tomorrow (Sunday). Thanks for the order!

DFWBo-

Glad you liked the overall properties of the OBB's in comparison to the Grxx Pxxxxx's. BTW, thought you were real good to deal with on the GS-911. Hope everything worked out well with the firmware upgrade we talked about. Good to know that the Throttle Rocker from Kuryakin didn't militate against my OBB's. Also thanks for the nice compliment. . . . . . . . . . . . . .back at you!

LeeMan-

As to the Go Cruise compatibility issue- well, we've already talked about my position on recommendations. I would be interested in your posting some pics of the GC installation experiment you made with the OBB's. How much do you think you'll have to cut them back? Let me know your thoughts.

Best to all-

Rep

Not sure I can help as I will not be installing the OBB's till spring. With temps in the 20's I'm wearing my Olympia winter gloves for my commute - which are extremely warm with thick padding. I tried the OBB's with the Olympia gloves but together they made the grips too large and uncomfortable. Also, while I could still feel the grip heat with the OBB's - I want all the warmth I can get during the winter. The Go Cruise requires about a 1/2 inch so I guess I'll be trimming the throttle side OBB by that amount. I think they will work great for the warmer months when I wear my summer gloves.

Question ship date?

I placed my order last Monday (7 Nov 11, paid via PP), and I was wondering when the ship date would be? I'm anxious to install the OBB's on my RT.

I received my pair in a timely manner. I installed them this weekend (a 30 second job per side) and went for a ride today. After a couple of hundred miles, I like them. The heat may have taked a couple of seconds longer but still kept my hands warm. While I have medium sized hands, the increased size helped my comfort level.

One of the best $20.00 I've spent on the GS. Highly recommended.

I too have experienced the part where the OBB's take a few seconds longer to heat up, but then seem to hang on to the heat for longer. Interesting phenomenon! Glad they went on quick and helped with your long distance comfort. Thanks for the endorsement, and the comment about good value.

Installed!

I received the OBB's Monday, like we figured. Packaged well with easy to follow instructions. (Thanks for the Dum Dum!).
I removed the Grip Puppies from my RT. Side by side, the OBB's are a little thicker than the Grip Puppies. Installation was easy. The instructions give some good tips on placement of the OBB seam. I repositioned the OBB's a couple of times and the adhesive maintained it's stickiness. I haven't had the opportunity to test ride the OBB's, but they feel better than the Grip Puppies.

Consider me a happy customer!

Casey851-

Please disregard my PM, and give me a call at 518-461-3003 when you have a minute. I am very pleased that you got the OBB's in the mail Monday. I also appreciate that you were kind enough to post your updated information here on this thread. Your observations are both valued and appreciated. I put a lot of time into writing directions that would be both helpful and easy to follow, so it is very gratifying when someone like yourself finds them to be an asset. I further selected the industrial grade velcro hook that would have highly sticky properties just so people would have the option of being able to re-position the OBB's, if need be. I'm glad you like my product, and thanks again for your business! I will look forward with anticipation to your ride report after using them a couple hundred miles or so.

Best,

Dave R.

Update

I have had my BBs for a couple of weeks now but this past weekend finally had a chance to try them out in cooler weather and longer distance.

As reported by many the installation is a snap and they do not interfere with the Kaoko throttle lock on my 1200 GS. The heated grips worked just fine (air temps were in high 30s) albeit it took a few minutes for the heat to come through but once it did, the grips were the usual temperature. I can't say I noticed any loss of heat.

All in all, very nice product and the textured surface makes gripping the throttle much easier.

Thanks for a very useful farkle, Dave.
