I had an extra set of H-D grips, so I fitted them to my snowblower!

Installed my new grips and went for a ride. They are thicker than the stock grips and bulged in the center. Classic style.

That same grip is on two of my Sporties, the style with the heavy ribbing allows a more relaxed grip, all but eliminating neck and shoulder cramping, at least for me anyway.

That's what I'm looking for. I'm hoping it helps relieve cramping in my clutch hand.
