Greg,Replaced my grips with some dandy Pro Grip 102 foam Superbike grips. Nice... I had some other "superbike" foam grips on there (Johar?)
But these guys felt great today; you have tight hand control but just enough foam to kill half the vibes.
My last excursion into Florida to visit the Keys I found the same traffic! From Jax south I did some A1A and US1 only b/c I hadn't been in about 35 yrs but eventually made my way to the turnpike down by Vero Beach. It was well worth it!Got up at O'dark hundred, rode up about 100 miles to Cape Canaveral to watch the SpaceX launch, only to be completely fogged in. Then I rode home. Thought it would be more scenic coming down A1A but big mistake, horrible traffic. By the time I got about 1/3 of the way home, I moved over to US1, then I-95 and finally the turnpike. Just wanted to get home at that point. Altho I've lived in FL for 40 years, this was the first time I'd ever actually gone to a launch. I was so disappointed that I couldn't see anything. All we could hear was the roar of the rocket engines as it ascended, then the set of double sonic booms as the rockets re-entered the atmosphere.
I have a pair of 714's on my Bandit presently. They're pretty good, but because I run flat drag-bars on that bike, there's a little more pressure on my hands, and I find the heel of my palm get's a little painful after a while using the 714's.At a suggestion of others I also tried Pro Grip #714 gel grips. I never went back to foam.
Oh yeah, I'd forgotten you prefer more forward lean than I do. I tend to sit up much more so I have very little weight on my wrists & elbows.I have a pair of 714's on my Bandit presently.

Pretty good otherwise.
