eaaaaasy button!

Just got mine in the mail and installed inside of 5 minutes!

They feel good and fit right. A whole lot better than having to purchase new grips to replace the throttle side that slit open when the bike tipped in a trailer . Gaffers tape to secure the slit, grip buddies to secure the rest and give my gorilla mitts something to hold onto.

hey Dave will you be coming out with a leaner grip anytime soon? Love the ones we have for lighter gloves but for my little hands might be overkill for the winter. Just curious!

Hi Leslie!

Actually, we are testing some new thicknesses which may work out. I will keep you apprised. If everything goes as planned, they will be called "Super Shark Lites". Still in the testing phase, but we are making progress. No introduction date set, as yet. Need to make sure we are satisfied these will work as designed.

Best,

Dave R.

OBB ordered today

Dave,
I'm a little slow but just found your great group buy today. Paypal is on it's way.
Riding season begins again as soon as the heat and humidity drops a bit more.

thanks,

Mick

bmwmick-
Know exactly what you mean. I and my riding partner left at 6:30 am this past Sunday morning with the temp running at around 58 degrees F. We rode 281 gorgeous miles on the sweepies and twisties of the Adirondacks just in time before the temps reached 89 degrees F. Safe and sound back in the garage to wait for the next nice riding day. Love this time of year for riding.

Best,

Dave R.

Wear of covers

Dave

I put a pair of these on my bike back in November 2010 as I recall and probably have put on 10,000 miles. My rig has a sidecar and notice that the left cover is starting to fray the outside layer where my left hand knuckles grip. I do not see this as a problem since I can just rotate them to an area where I am not seeing any wear but was wondering what life expentancy I should expect for them? I do not see any wear on the right cover and then may be because it is always being rotated to a new position and does not see contiual use in only one position.

Square4-

The mileage you are reporting is more than 3 times our stated warranty period of 3 months/3,000 miles. That being said, we have an upgrade coming out in mid to late September which improves our neoprene formula and makes it more durable. Candidly, it is probably not unreasonable for you to receive 9-10 months/10,000 miles on our original Sharkskins. BTW, the new and improved model will be called "Super Sharks". Look for them to debut 2-3 weeks from now. Regardless of how we formulate the composition of our neoprene grips, there will eventually be a date in the future when they will wear out.

Hope you are enjoying your grips, and we will have the Super Sharks out soon.

Best,

Dave R.

About two weeks. Will announce their arrival here, as soon as we can feasibly ship.

Just received my Original Buddies and have to say that I LOVE them. The install took 5 min and they are very comfortable for me as the regular grips seems too narrow for my long fingers and too hard on my palm.
Great product from a great US company!
Thanks Dave!
