I did 230 miles on my drz today with snow lining the road for about 180 of it and the moose hippo hands along with my $20 cheap ass grip heaters made sure that my hands were the only part of me that wasn't cold. They work great, and yes, they are ugly as hell, who cares!

Check out Walmart for the Stearns version. If your Walmart has them come spring/summer,,,,, you an get them for 7$ a set. I bought 5 sets!

And yes, they really help vs normal dual sport type hand gaurds, they are light and the go on and off in seconds.......................... and they cheap.

Function over form for me, the dweebs ool breezes and scoff all they want. They remind of all the Ass Pirates on the Hardly Ablesons with their assless chaps.

Expect my covers to arrive this week. Already have the oem guards on the bike but they let a lot of cold air freeze fingers. Also, WIW I found Bike Master heated grips with a 5 position temp controller on Amazon for $55. Have yet to install them but they are very solid construction and should plug right in. (No Amazon or Bike Master affiliation) If you are looking for heated grips, not just the grid type, check 'em out.

Is everything you have on your bars listed in your sig line?
I believe so, why?
