Get a Grip

Since I have been spending a little more time on the TBS lately I have discovered I would like some larger grips than the stock ones I am currently running. I have somewhat large hands with Arthur present in the fingers, (worst one of the rightus boys I might add) I find the bigger diameter ones I run on my other bikes are more comfortable. I have been searching on line and found several sets that peak my interest, but thought I would open it up for suggestions from anyone else in the same dinghy.....

Wow. Too bad your bars are smaller than the ones on my Low Rider. I need smaller grips as I get Arthurs syndrome where my thumb meets my wrist from reaching around the 1 5-8" Kuryakyn grips...

Go retro and get some squishy Coke bottle grips.

With my Adventurer, I went with these contoured Kuryakyn grips (mounted) which fit my hands better than the skinny stock ones. ( Part #5928 )

I got my TB with this: https://www.motozem.cz/penove-gripy-...-r-tech-eagle/

I like large grips, but change it for another big heated of Oxford Brand

These came from the previous owner. Pretty sure they're Kuryakawhatevers. Nice and beefy.

Those are Kuryakyn ISO grips, same as I have on the Low Rider. Unless they're smaller due to the smaller bar, they are 1-5/8" diameter. Quite beefy. You can get them with a "Throttle Boss", too, which helps on those long stretches of highway, if you go there.

Good suggestions one and all. If I go the Kuryakyn route I will either have to get a second mortgage on the house or sell a kidney. They make a decent product but you certainly pay for it......
