I bought a pair of these from Cal Sport Touring and after you trim about 1/2" off the non-tapered end, they fit perfectly and add just the right amount of extra diameter for my hands. Softer, too. I can't say they absorb any vibration, because realtive to the other stuff in my garage, the Strom doesn't do what I'd call "vibration." More like a big, quiet electric motor. And finally, a bike with an overdrive gear that's really an overdrive gear!

hey, Lmundy, I see you are a texan. we have our "own" group here and need everyone to check in once in awhile so we can sort of accumulate how many Tex-Stromheads we have. Then organize some rides or something.
