There is a reason everyone has those, they are SOOO comfortable I thought the exact same thing when I got my 9. I used to see custom bikes with the ISO grips installed and I would think, why would you put those on a beautiful custom bike...everyone has them!! Then I rode someone's bike that had a pair and never looked back. I rode from Charleston, SC to Huntsville, AL, last year and my hands never cramped or fatigued (is that a word?). I used a crampbuster for the ride over as well.I prefer the show chrome accessories grips. Look better than the Kury's, and everyone has those.
And now they come in black!!Kuryakyn ISO Grips
One if the best purchases that I've made, comfort wise.
