I like Hogues, quite a lot. I had a set with steel inserts on one of my 1911's.

The original ones that were on my 1976 360VA but you can't buy then any more, they were sort of a natural semi-transparent brownish yellow rubber and very sticky soft.

goddam gunpowder happy russians anyway
I had a set of pachmeyers on my Ruger blackhawk, but they were pretty bulky until I trimmed the bottom off even with the grip frame.

On my bikes I tend to go with Oury grips.

I've tried lots of different grips, but I keep settling on Beston Gran Turismo grips. Most of my bikes have ended up wearing them. They just feel the most "right."

That being said, on especially vibe-y bikes, old-style Yamaha "Trail" grips work well to keep your hands from going numb. And the cheap knockoffs you find nowadays seem to actually last longer than the originals.

when you buy a pair of gran tourismos do they come with a glass ampule of glue that you have to break off the neck of to let out the glue ?
they look just like the ampules of morphine that was the basis of the intrigue in the movie

my favorite is the Tomaselli Daytona natural gum rubber grip:



It isn't the most comfortable, but I like it because of the natural translucent rubber color, because it is semi-soft, it has good grip, and it has the built in palm ridge. Mostly I like it because it is what all the pukka Italian 1970's hot rods had. Call me a hipster, I don't care.


Oddly enough my second fav grip is the Biltwel Kung Fu Grip:

I have these on my ironhead and they are super squishy, dampen a little vibration, and yet are easy to grip and hold on to, a nice thick size, and don't look like a chrome plated dildo (unlike many other harley grips). They are also like $15 if you look hard enough which is cheap.

Third favorite is any confy gel grip i can fish out of the Iron Pony clearance bin for less than $5. You would be surprised at how many cool comfy ones there are for less $3-4

Have the Tomasellis on my Aermacchi and had KFs on my old 883.
