R, Well they are costly at $74. I've had them on my Nomad for a long time and your hands will never cause any problems. It's a diameter thing with me. They are 1 5/8" roughly. I have arthritis so bad that holding those small suckers just kill me and my thumb and first two fingers on my right hand get numb.

So Kury came out with them for Sport bikes this year and hot dang as soon as I found out I was on the internet. They look even better once the bar end weights are on. Oh! That's another $45.

I'm an old man and have to have some comfort while he's hauling a**. So now with the bars up and out, great grips, Air Hawk seat I can be comfortable as he** on the great suspension set up and I'll never tell.

I can rip those twisties in my backyard.

Work, that they do. Best I've ever had my hands on. I feel like I got a hold of some thing instead of a pop sickle stick.

Chrome is not my thing but they definitely look comfy. I'm getting up there in age lol. Do they make them in all black? How do they feel with a two finger pull?

well, my dirt bike has similar size handgrips, so it was a natural transition for me. everyone is different though and its great someone put something on the market like that, because im sure there are plenty of people who want them!

i need to come up with something cool...that way i could get rich and be lazy LMAO!

Just wait until the bar ends are on. Right now they are cruiser looking admit. Just hang on.

I would consider them if they were all black and not $74.... I too have the numbness problem in my right hand, but it's due to a 19 year old elbow injury that tweaked the nerves a bit...

That sticker I made using a label maker. It's RPM = Speed at 13,13.5,14,14.5,15,15.5,16 and 16.5K in 6th Gear. I'll have it memorized one of these days. It's about an 1" tall and 1/2" wide.

I know the speedo is at least 3 MPH fast at 55 to 65 MPH so no telling how far off it is at higher speeds. Tachs, gear ratios and tire heights are accurate numbers to calculate speeds by.

Love the ISO's on my cruiser, but I'm not digging the look of them on your bike (they are comfy though). Would look better if they were red, brushed aluminum, or black, IMO. Just look a little out of place without any other chrome on the bike (though it's tough to tell from your avatar if the graphics on the side of your bike are chrome - might make a world of difference, visually).

I'd consider a nice, thick grip for my 10, if they looked like they belonged on the bike.
