    • Mr. BeachMoto- You are very welcome. glad they feel great!

    • Mr. beeper- You're welcome. Here's hoping your new GS gets here quickly!

    • Mr. Gumbeaux- You bring up a very good point: I live by three basic rules:
    1. Take care of the customer

    2. Take care of the customer


    3. Take care of the customer


    Also, I'm sure you will find that plenty of heat comes through my OBB's to your hands.


    • Captain Picard (I promoted you)- Happy to accommodate! I think you will find the OBB's are quite compatible with the Go-Cruise. From what I remember, the Go-Cruise will not even touch my neoprene grips. Looking forward to your report.

    • Mr. Lakota- My pleasure! Glad they cure the skinny grip problem, and isn't it great that you still feel the heat through my OBB's?
    And, last , but not least. . . . .


    • Mr. NavyDiveDoc- Glad you found installation easy and straightforward. Good luck on the roadtest-stay safe!
    Thanks all for the feedback. Means a lot to me, since main reason I make these is to help others be safe and comfortable. You can't imagine how much I enjoy helping other serious motorcyclists like myself!

    Got mine already. Thanks for the quick shipping.

    Look good. Going to try them on and out as soon as I can ride again. Couple of weeks on a toe surgery. :-( but these do look like they will work just fine.

    Got my two sets today!:clap

    Between installing on my F8GS and the wife's Honda 250, I think I invested 3 minutes of time. Perfect fit on both. Great work AdkJack.

    To Gadgetboy, Sturgeon, and Cush-

    You are very welcome. feels good to know that I can play a positive role in all of your riding comfort and safety. Also, it is kind of cool that these OBB's are easily and quickly installed at home, without needing to involve anyone else's help.

    In the immortal words of Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard) of the A-team:

    "I love it when a plan comes together"

    Rep

    P.S. I just noticed how many posts Gadget Boy has on this forum: 50,020 for pete's sake! That's gotta be some kind of a record. Congrats Gadget Boy!!!!!

    Service.....top notch, sent PP within a few days package arrived at my house.
    Quality....again top notch, they seem well made and install in minutes.
    Comfort...just took a quick spin around the block with them on, and although seemed a little "weird" because of the thicker grip feel great. Also had the heated grips on low and felt the heat coming through so no worries there.
    I will hopefully have the time to put a few more miles on them this weekend to get a better "feel" for them but so far impressed with the product and the service.

    My two pair made it all the way to the Great White North but alas installation will await the Spring as there are few days of riding weather left. I am encouraged by all the positive reports however.

    I installed my new BB's today on my F650GS. I'm going to ride with them unglued for a bit to get a feel for the seam location. I really like the feel and my throttle rests (yes, one on each bar) fit over them just fine. It's a quality product.

    Ghostryder-

    Thanks for the nice comments. Isn't it great when you realize that the OBB's actually concentrate the heat from your grips! Also, I think you will find out over time that the so-called "weird feeling" will be riding your bike (any bike) without OBB's in place. I've personally been using one set or another on various bikes for 8-9 years, and it's tough to feel comfortable on a bike without them.

    bmwoadsterca-

    There is no law against installing your OBB's over the winter and enjoying their feel in your garage over the winter. It''ll make them that much more enjoyable looking forward to how you'll use them in the spring if you let your self "anticipate".

    Timmer-

    Glad you like the OBB's. Remember though, we do not do any testing with or make recommendations to our customers that they use our grips with any kind of throttle locks etc. That's one of those deals that you experiment on your own, and have to take the resulting performance of your own application of our grips on your own shoulders.BTW, you can re-position your grips if you don't like where you put them the first time. The glue is plenty strong enough to handle re-positioning.

    KCDakar-

    Got your email, and your grips should be speeding your way later today, as I ship 7 days a week.




    Keep the feedback coming guys.

    All the best,

    Dave R.
