Same as those, but the all black version. I do NOT like any chrome in the cockpit of handlebar area. The sun gleaming off chrome and straight into your eyes is very distracting and tiring after a short while.

That is a fact!

And why I strip all chrome off the dash areas.

I used to like the ISO grips but NOT in chrome and the black from the rubber comes off on your gloves. I now prefer stock grips with foam covers.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I had smooth leather covered aftermarket grips on my 1500 when I purchased it. I had a problem with my hand cramping on long journeys. I recently changed the grips to standard rubber that have lots of embedded pattern for grip and my hand cramp has been practically non existent ever since, even on a recent 3500 mile trip. I think the problem was that with the smooth grips I had to clasp too tightly to stop the throttle slipping back.
Just something to keep in mind when choosing your new grips.

I think you are right.
I had ISO grips on my 1500s, both of them...
if it weren't for the cruise control, I would have had a lot of wrist problems.

my current 1800 has grips that look almost like OEM but they are soft foam and have a lot of little grippy knobbies on them... I can use the throttle for extended periods of a hour or so.... then back to the CC again.

I've never had a glare issue with the Kurvakyn grips.. Probably because my hands are the grips when I'm riding.............

Back to riding after a 30 yr lay off.. Started with a 86 Magna 750 on to a 02 Shadow 1100,99 Magna 750,91 ST1100, finaly a 93 Wing.. and now an 06 1800 Loven Life...

Never thought about the chrome reflection.

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.
