So went to the dealership today to pick $1700 worth of parts and they tell me, well the grips WE helped you pick out came back discontinued. Seriously, are all parts guys this ignorant? Some comes into your store where you get paid commission, and spends twice as much money as they should, and you don't have the courtesy to call them and let them know there is a problem with their order? Now generally I wouldn't be that upset but I was pretty excited about my new grips and now I have to wait another effin week to get them, and thats only after I find a new set of grips. Which brings me to my real issue, anyone here know of any flashy ALL BLACK grips available....any help once again is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I've heard some pretty bad horror stories when going with anodized grips, anyone know how bad they vibrate on the V ROD?

I have chrome grips on mine, check out my gallery. Not much vibration but with my drag bars I lean more forward and the palms do get a little sore after several miles. Gel padded palms on the gloves fixed that.

I think I may have to compromise which I dont want to do, I hate wearing gloves, it makes me feel farther away from my bike, its kinda like feeling up the girlfriend, its one thing to get a quick grab and feel the cloth between you and her, but a whole new feeling once you get a feel of the nipple.....god I hate the dealership right now.

Wow, well spoken. I may have to change grips and ditch the gloves, never though of it quite that way. But then again the wife makes me wear gloves before I touch her anyway. :angeldev:

are you sure you also saw these PM's ? i've seen these on a DX and they are the works and with the integrated rubber it's the closest thing to get a feel of the nipple :D some members have them, too bad i can't use them since i run Kellermanns good luck with your search and when you do find some be sure to post some pics ?
ps : Rizoma has some nice black ones too but dealer says they won't fit the HD handlebar (diam. issue)
grtz

I just ordered a set of those black PM grips from HogPro today. I haven't heard anything bad about them.

I only wear gloves when it's cold.
I'll never look at my bike the same way again...... :D

The PM`s are truly great! I used them on a Custom-build FXR here earlier, just ordered a pair for my DX now.
