Alternative to beemer buddies
« on: June 07, 2014, 12:59:17 am »
Anybody got a good suggestion for an alternative to beemer buddies (other then grip puppies :) )

I liked the buddies but they fell apart way too fast...

Thanks
You only need two tools in life – WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn’t move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn’t move and does, use the duct tape.

Hi Marc!

I would like to assist you with your Grip Buddies. When did you buy them, and how many miles do you have on them? Very hard to back up a product without any information or an attempt by the buyer to contact the manufacturer. Would be very happy to help you with this, and I can't imagine that you won't be a "happy camper" by the time we are done.

Would suggest that you PM me and begin a dialogue, so I can be sure you are taken care of. There are many aspects to the wear that a person experiences on something like grips, and I am sure I can assist you in determining the best course of action to get the most wear out of your grips.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Alternatively, you can email me at info@originalgripbuddies.com, or call me at 518-461-3003. Actually though, I am sure I included that information when I sent you your OGB's.

Best,

Dave R.

Do a search on the web for Grab On, they have been around since the seventies, had them on a GS750 back then.
Have them now on the GL and the Connie.
