I bought these for my Ducati 996. I run Hypermotard grips on my Sport Classic and really like the "waffle" pattern for comfort. So, not wanting to spend big bucks on Ducati grips, I went with these. They are comfy and reduce the buzz on my fingers a bit. They are a step up from original but the downside is I don't see them lasting very long. I ride rather aggressive and do some canyon runs and I can see wear already at the ends after only 2 weeks. That said, I would buy these again. BTW, I only used 3M spray adhesive on the left one as the 996 has ribs on the throttle sleeve to hold the grip in place. No twisting or slipping after hard riding. Hope this helps.

Let me say, I was skeptical at first when i first saw this on the site for such a price with so many essential features. I met a guy on a ride who had it on ( he had a MED )and asked him a few questions and was sold just by what I saw... a quality no non-sense leather suit. He did say that he should have ordered a size smaller as his was a bit off-shoulder. (He was my stature as well)
Otherwise he was happy.
It was shipped free... I ordered on a Sunday pm and it arrived Tuesday morning! It was bagged in it's own garment bag and shipped in a box. My first impression was the color was vibrant white and the red was subtle but noticeable ;)
I specifically ordered a SMALL although I'm 5-8, 165-170.
I believe a race suit should be hard to get into and out of. I see a lot of guys that say their expensive suits a comfy but they are ill fitting and too big. (It is my experience that a tight suit is better than one that will give you rug burns once you hit the ground and catch on something.)
It is comfy once wrestling it on, but getting my legs in was a challenge. There is WAY TOO MUCH loose material in the legs and my feet (size 9) kept getting caught up in it.. Same for the shoulder. The shoulder protection kept shifting around while putting my arms through.
Once on and zipped up though, it was part of me...everything was where it should be and movement was acceptable. There is a bit of nut tug but the flexible panel down there made it tolerable :)
All in all, I am happy with the purchase so far...maybe an update when I ride with it later. Cheers!
