Post Grips

I am looking for new grips for my bike. I have "Pro Grip Superbike" grips on them now. They are decent, but they are starting to come off in my gloves, like small pieces and they are about 7 years old (4 of which I didn't ride). Anywho, I was just wondering what people would recommend. I ride daily and sometimes distances (350-400 miles round trip). I am looking for comfortable grips. Max $ would be $35 a pair. I have heard that "Galindo Pro Superbike Grips" are good ones. Just looking for other options and what people's opinions are from experience or scuttlebutt (word of mouth). Thanks again.

Got some Harris grips and love them. I think they are made of silicone and shouldn't break down as fast as a regular rubber grips. No need to use a knife tco remove the old ones. Use your air blower/nozzle on your compressor to take them off and put back on. Didnt know if you knew that trick or not.

I am going to get the Galindo ones I think. I found some Harris ones but I only found some with graphics on them. I like solid colors. So i think I am going to go with the Galindo ones. They are around $15-20.

Didn't know about the air compressor trick. You put it on which end? Outside(bar end) or inside(start/stop/high beams)?

On the outside. Insert the nozzle between the grip and clipon and it will "inflate" the grip enough to release it to make it easier to pull off. Install is the reverse or use a rubber mallet. Hairspray will work in place of grip glue.

Good pick. They are my first choice in grips.
