Comfortable grips. Do the exist? What are you using?
Have been trying different grips for more comfort.
Took a drive to the bike shop as I recalled some foam grips I had on the Virago that absorbed more of the high frequency vibrations.
While there, I saw another set called Progrip. They are a softer rubber, kind of like a silicone but not and are somewhat ergonomic.
Anyone have good experiences in this department?
What grips do you use?

+1 on the Oury's. I've used these on my bikes for years and there great. Haven't done the Doo yet, but its coming.

I agree with that said. My fingers have been going numb with the solid ones that were on the bars. Even through gloves.
I had to shave it all off with a large Olfa blade as they were cast right onto it. Was quite a chore. Used LePage contact adhesive and black silicone to fill the end piece. Hope they stay on.

ODI screw-down Rouge! on all three skis!
The GPR setup has more-than paid for itself in stitches! -early season I was using my middle finger on throt (cramping), my right hand flew off in the snotty stuff and I gathered it up. Any other setup and I was tasting the bars.

billie, those looks pretty good
one thing.. I would recommend wearing gloves, ODI and most grips tend to have a little bit of slip to them when wet.. and I just recently rode without gloves and actually for the first time was a little nervous, of accidentally letting go!
