Thumbs up Touring grips -- found

So I had added SV Racing's foam grip covers and have found them to be too slippery to my liking. Did a search and found the discontinued Sunline Gran Touring grips and remembered them from back in the day. I wanted some bad but nowhere to be found. The knock offs of the Italian Gran Turisimo grips on Ebay weren't going to cut it either.
I then found these in several styles and colors =>

Biltwell Renegade Grips

The other styles are on other pages on their site.
After putting them on the other day and 30 miles or so -- they come close to the Sunlines. Throttle is stuck to my glove in a good way and I don't have to keep readjusting. I give them
If you do a search on Ebay you can get them with free shipping
Happy enough to pass it along.

Good to know. The Sunlines were just plain perfect, aside from the fact that they didn't really get along with grip heaters.

Are they as squishy-soft as they look?

Not so much. Firm, yet tacky --- and that's all I'm gonna say about that
