Very pleased wih my Aerozine grips, but they are quite hard. Excellent grip though, and available in all kinds of colours that suit or ruin the bike.

Haven't tried the corky version yet though

Out of interest, anyone ever had a grip simply slip off? I haven't so have always thought lock ons unecessary.

I use the Renthal super soft lock ons and am pretty happy with them. Comfy, seem to be wearing well and clean up well despite bring white.

I've had grips come loose-ish when the weather has been absolutely horrible, but generally use hairspray to put them on - makes them easy to install, and when it dries out it sticks them to the bar :lol:
