Dear OBB/OGB Visitor,
Let me introduce myself. . . . . . . . Just like you, I am a serious Sport Touring Motorcycle Enthusiast, who every chance he gets, likes to ride his RT for both work and pleasure.
I started riding bikes back in 1964, and have owned every brand/model you can think of, and a few you can't. I've ridden in Europe and all over the USA, and my bucket list includes getting to ride as many countries as possible.
While teaching Motorcycle Safety, I developed my Neoprene Original Beemer Buddies/Original Grip Buddies Comfort Grips because I wasn't happy with what was available. It turns out that what I came up with is currently thought of as the best option available to improve your hand comfort and the overall control of your motorcycle by serious motorcyclists, at a price everyone can afford (see the testimonial section).
I make these grips myself in Upstate New York, from the finest industrial-grade materials I can find. For example, the glue on the Velcro brand Hook I use is rated to be stable to 220 degrees F, that's 8 degrees above boiling! Also, I lock-stitch the hook strip on with B-69 nylon thread that you couldn't break with your hands, if you tried. And the embossed rubber of my brand new Neoprene SUPER SHARKSKINS is, extremely grippy, durable, simple and quick to install, and won't soak up water.
Thanks for visiting my site, and I hope you enjoy using your new Original Beemer Buddies/Original Grip Buddies, as much I did creating them. Maybe I'll see you on the road?
