I dont know yet about long riding....they feel very nice in hand.IThe diameter is bit bigger ,that suits workman hands.If there is a problem it is propably in the bar ends.They are much lighter than the org ones.The handle bar is wibrating bit more...iching maybe the right word.I let you know after a bit longer ride.But the look is fantastic like you said.Comfy and design sometimes dont go hand in hand..... :blah:
For my opinion the bar ends looks so good that i am trying to keep them.When i was driving back home from my dealer i took 190kms/h and i did not felt the prob at that speed.In high speed you have so much other things to consider....
But in normal speed i felt the difference with the weithgs.When it is little warmer i drive some more and let you know if there is a prob or big prob...if it is big i will paint the org ones in red.
don't have any pics on bike, but you really just don't notice them, but the grip better, so I can relax my hand more, and they dampen the very high frequency vibes a bit.
Plus for the price, it was no stress to try them. http://cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?item=VAN_19-7240
