Aftermarket Grips

Whats grips are you running and whats your opinion of them over stock grips?

I need something that wont slip off when I use my tie downs. I have the strap thingy that attaches to both grips and then you use ratchet straps on the loops that hang off the strap thingy. This pulls hard on the grips and bunches them up on the ends of the bars.

P.S. I searched "grip" and "grips" and came up with squat.

Rental or Domino etc, those are high performance grips, do not confuse Bling with Performance.
If your grips are moving and rolling up, then they are not secured properly - iaw - glued and/or etc.

An easy and cheap solution to the problem you've experienced is to put a piece of PVC pipe over each of your grips before you attach your "strap thingy." They''ll prevent the "thingy" from pulling directly on the grips.

Man, if that's the problem, you need to switch tie-down methods...
Get a second generation Canyon Dancer...or, better yet, switch to a Baxley Sport Chock and just lightly restrain your bike. There are much better ways of doing that than just crushing your grips with racheting tie-downs....
