Holy cow Dave, I just saw your post to me. My trip south was great.  Had a blast, but the first week was wet! Love the grips,had finger grooves wore into them by the time I got home, pretty wore down now, but still better than not having anything on the grips at all.

Rich-

Glad they are working out for you. Merry Christmas to you and yours in the coming days. BTW, just came back from the IMS show at the Javits Center in NYC. Lots of cool new bikes, and an opportunity to meet some COG members in person and put a face with a name.

Very Merry Christmas to all!

Best,

Hey dave, saw you at the show but you were in the middle of a potential sale. I was the guy who butted in and was saying how much i love your grips & that they helped me with numbing problems. Hope i was helpful.  :great:

Dave, I put your new version OGBs on for 2013 and ended up hardly getting to ride due to so many surgeries.

However, I am going at least to Texas in August and possibly the west coast by way of Portland (long story) and I'm sure I will have feedback after that trip.  :)

JR:

Sorry to hear about your surgeries. Hope all went well, and by all means let me know what you think once you get back in the saddle. In the mean time, have a very Merry Christmas with your family.

Best,

Matter of fact that was a help. You can butt in any time, and the guy bought 2 sets!

Thanks,

Hi,
       I use them.

I have big hands and they make the grips more comfortable! :great:

I would look at them as a consumable as they do wear! ;D

Do these work well with the Oxford Heated Grips?  I would think so, just looking for some current responses.

Thank you  :motonoises:   :great:

They work just fine with my 2011 C-14 OEM Heated Grips.
So I don't see why they wouldn't work with aftermarket ones.

Can anyone confirm what size is needed for a 2010 C-14 with stock heated grips.  I'm driving by a dealer this week and he is indicating I need the AB size but suggest I measure to confirm. He gave me the way to measure (shown below) but I am not anywhere near my new to me bike before I go by.


The first letter is the circumference (all the way around) of the grip. The second letter is the length of the grip.
A = 4.00" (102mm)
B = 4.25" (108mm)
C = 4.50" (114mm)
D = 4.75" (121mm)
E = 5.50" (140mm)
For example:
BE = 4.25" circumference x 5.50" length
AC = 4.00" circumference x 4.50" length
Told ya it was easy!


Thanks
