Hi JohnE1000-

Avoid anything that is too mushy like that foam junk. What you need is firm support for extended comfort.

Allow me to second Blue Jays post. We use to get these darn bikes traded in & so many of them with big fat mushy grips. Still we were so ready to change to regular grips & those with experience would damand regular grips while inexperienced riders would fall in love with the big fat mushy grips, though sometimes would ask us to put on a set of regular grips, YET when it came to a new bike they went with the stock grips as they had learned.

In my riding area, being in the Cdn Rockies I am continually turning the wick up & down due to the bends, & such.

You must have long dreary flat runs & so you could be thinking to some sort of a sort of cruise control which are avaliable, though I have never seen them & so many have said they did not like them while some swore by them.
