Default Best grips for 06?

Hey all, looking into a new set of grips for my 06. Just wondering what you guys would recommend? Cost really isn't an issue.

Some sort of Gel grip would be the way to go imo. In terms of riding comfort, probably one of the best mods you can do.

I roll with the Driven D3's. Macined aluminum and gel-grip, awesome look and comfort.
Lots of colors, you can even mix and match grip/collar colors. A little pricey ($50),
but a clean look that I found tasty and irresistable.

Grip Store

To broaden the search and in the interest of fair play, check out the Renthal's,
Kuryaken or Drag Specialtys to name a few.

I've hade the D3's and they were overpriced in my opinion. Soft grips and a thin aluminum collars for $50 is ridiculous. If you are going for looks check out these DMV grips that look similar to the D3 but the cost is a lot more reasonable.
DMV Handlebar Grips, 120mm

If you don't care about looks go with Renthals. I love them. I bought the Kevlar grips that offer great amount of grip but actually last a long time despite feeling like a soft grip. I switched to these after the D3's and haven't looked back.

I have dual compound renthals and they are awesome! I love them and I kinda like the grey, for the most part I like to think I prefer function over fashion. They are worth the $12 to at least try.
