Original Grip Buddies for $25!

It was exactly what I was looking for. If you are 6' or taller, you don't cramp your grip, you can almost mind-meld to turn the throttle with greater leverage efficiency, and I don't even need my heated grips to stimulate cramps anymore.

I got than damn omni cruise for $50, and I just threw it in my trunk. I wish I had found the original grip buddies before I even got my heated grips or cruise. Its' just so hard to find something to expand the grip diameter except foam which is nothing really. I may have big hands for a 6' tall person, but these feel by far the best of ANYTHING I've ever used for a grip, and it's solid with just a little spring.

I may start letting people ride the Yellow Jacket just to see what all bikes could feel like for $25, for the original grip buddies anyway.

Yup...got 'em as well. They are nice and plush on the hands and good for reducing vibes a bit. The company owner even threw in a couple of dumb-dumb pops with them .... which in all honesty made me a bit skeptical about the G.Buddies at first ... thinking that I just got "suckered" or it was me who was the "dumb-dumb". But the puppies turned out to be a great mod.

I bought these on Amazon for $10.69 and they are the exact same things as the grip puppies. Except for the price of course! They fit great and feel great. I did have to cut to fit the length of the grip but that was no big deal.

The original grip buddies and the REAL pazzo shorties make the Vs. 650 feel more like a used $10K bike for sure (under $175 for both, lol.) They are the best way to baby your own hands and get several more 100K miles out of your Vs. 650: watch me! The Yellow Jacket is definitely in for the long haul.
