Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Bishop-

Glad the OBB's are working out for you. Thanks for the nice comments!

Eddyturn-

You are very welcome sir. I love it when I can help one of my clients eliminate a distraction (eg. hand discomfort) which results in their being safer and happier!

and,

Jimmex and Roadie-

Both of your orders went out right after you ordered (sent Tues 11/22/11- roadie: check email). You should both get them very soon.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Dave R.

Wow!

Come on guys - when is the last time you read the instructions and tried to follow them and then had to make a few things work out just so you could get the installation correct!!!!?

Well, all who may not have jumped in yet, Dave does a great job of explaining how to install - a very simple process [a bit harder in a dark garage after the sun goes down].

Now, if I can get the just-moved-office organized I will go for a ride. These BeemerBuddies seem like the cat's meow - especially if the heat comes thru as we understand!!

Thanks Dave.

Got mine in the mail today. Barring rain/snow mix as predicted I'll check 'em out on the road. Either way they are going on in the morning.

Roadie-

Looks like your grips were delivered at 8:42 am this morning. Once you get 'em installed and you've had a chance to try 'em, let us know what you think.

Best,

Dave R.

Installed, and they work as advertised! Only a short ride with them so far, but they fill my hand nicely and I think they will prove to be more comfy on long trips.
Thanks Dave.

I got my pair two weeks ago or so. I've put about 500km on them since. Love them. I have relatively long fingers so it's really taken some stress off my hands and they absorb some shocks.

I agree with everyone who said they were well packaged. Mine even came with a sucker and a hand written note. Nice touch.

I'd recommend them to anyone who finds the stock grips a bit thin - they've made a world of difference on hand cramps for me.

Peterb-

Thank you for your kind words. Also, the time has come to install a light in the garage. This is a required piece of equipment if you want to actually see your bike after dark in there. But you already knew that. Let us know when the office is organized and you have had a chance to install the OBB's and give us a ride report. I know you will enjoy the "concentrating of the handgrip heat" you will experience with the OBB's. Let us know!

MotoBoss-

How did you make out on the test ride with your new grips? Inquiring minds want to know.


Roadie-

Glad you are comfortable with your new OBB's. Keep me posted over time, especially if you take them to exotic places in the world. I'm thinking of putting up a place on my new website showing where my OBB's have gone in the world.

Ottagonian-

I've said it before, but what a tremendous boost to realize that these OBB's actually make a difference in your riding experience, and therefore in your life. Makes me speechless sometimes. Thanks for your comments!

BeemerChef and NHBill-

Yours both went out yesterday, and you should have them soon.

Best,

Dave R.

I must admit I have failed . Due to work obligations I have not been able to get them on the bike let alone go for a ride! The weather has been constant rain for the past several days with snow yesterday and just today we finally got some sun. The temps are moving back up this week and this weekend (Saturday) I am getting them on and riding. I have cleaned the grips and ready to get them installed but.............................

No worries mate! Just wondered if you had had a chance yet to try them. No hurry. Let us know when you do.
