I'm looking at getting the show chrome grips, they look sweet, and the ribs look less bulky. And EVERYONE has iso grips!

I had these grips on my last bike, definitaly easier to grab the clutch and brake lever with but my hand fell asleep alot faster because my hand really had to grip the throttle

My ISO grips felt huge at first but now I love em and don't have any problems with the clutch or brake levers.

Just keep in mind those all metal grips will freeze your hands in cold weather and can be slippery.

I took the Iso grips off mine because they made my hands black if I wasn't wearing gloves. I have two sets of metal grips I swap back and forth and like both. One set is a cheap set of torpedo grips I got off ebay, the other is a set similar to the Battistini/Ness holey grips. The torpedos are comfortable but make you keep your hands in the same position all the time. The holey grips let you move your hands around and the air circulates through them to keep your hands cool.

I don't have a picture of the holey grips, but if you search for Battistini you can see them. Keep in mind they also have cheap ones on ebay, but to get them to work you have to shorten the bars about 3/4" and drill out the ends of the controls a little. I use the metal grips in summer and go back to the Iso grips in winter.

You might want to look at the Kuryakyn Flame grips too, they are a little smaller than the Iso grips.

Torpedo grips:

The reasons stated here are why I have stayed with OEM grips until I find something better.

I had the ISOs but also found them uncomfortable.

The grips I have now are awesome.

The concave taper alows me to move my hands around to vary the grip width while riding.

Everyone thinks they would be slick to grab, but the little dimples do just fine for hand 'traction'.
