Heated grips: Oxford or BikeMaster?

I'm going to be adding heated grips to the XChallenge and have narrowed it down to these two. Twisted Throttle has the Oxfords for $79.95. Happy-Trails has the BikeMasters for $53.94. I'm leaning towards the Oxfords as I only hear good things. My buddy has them on his KLR and really likes them.

No experience with the Bike Master but I put a set of the Oxfords on my Wee about a month ago and love them. I bought from Lockitt and they swapped out the standard Oxford controller for a warm and safe panel mount troller for an extra 35 bucks. Very happy with that choice, it looks much better and should be more reliable. I was somewhat concerned about the heat output with the aluminum bars I have but they get screaming hot.

Excellent point about the aluminum bars. I have the Renthal bars on mine. Thanks.
