Re: grip puppies

Linton, forgive my ignorance, but what are grip puppies ? I currently am waiting on a set of footpeg reloactors from Suburban Machinery (Ohio), and am about to order the Fenda Extenda, other than that I don't know of much in the way of accessories for the K12, I already have sheepskin covers and a set of RKA luggage bags.

Re: grip puppies

they are a foam grip/cover that go over the hand grip they can help with finger knumbness basically they open up your hand so you dont hang on so tight, heater still works in grips I love them.
there is buggar all accessories here for the LT I have the foot boards + suburban lowering kits, at the moment I am back on std pegs. Vstream Screen, dice for my ipod I also got a rear rack from the states dont use it,, the footboards well that was a saga came off in Tassie actually snapped both the eylets off the cover cause they dont fold up, they caused several hundred dollars worth of damage to the bike there is no way in hell I would advise anybody to buy them,

Re: grip puppies

Ahhh, now I'm with ya, would have been nice on my K100RT but I finally went to sponge type oversize grips and that did the same thing as these would do.
Don't suffer from the problem on the K12 and I've sat on it for 12 hours at a time. Cruise control allows you to move around and change hands etc, which helps.
