    Neoprene/foam handlebar grips for R1200GS 2015

    Hi Guys

    I'm assuming people buy stuff like this from various places - the ones for bikes are probably triple the price of other places, but who has bought from them and are they any good?

    I get pressure on my palms and was looking to cushion them a bit with a thin overlay of neporene/foam.

    Does anyone use these and where ahve you bought them from - are they any good?

    Thanks

    The same can be bought on eBay for half the price, so I bought two sets.

    I found them at twice the price so I only bought one. I guess the bloke who bought one pair probably got it about right.

    Not quite...

    I have these on my 1150 and I love them - I really like the thicker grip, and there's an element of vibe reduction, and the heated grips work just fine through them.

    Do these soak up water on a normal Irish day??
