Ahoy.

I have big (XXL gloves) hands and I'm wondering what's available out there for my Monster (04 M1000). I had some gran tourismo fatties on my old ride. Those were fine as they were fat and damped vibration. But I don't think those would work out on the M.

Is there a fatter, possibly gel-filled or "cushy" set of grips out there?

Thanks,

I know what you mean about the big hands (& feet - wink, wink,nod,nod). I use an $8 grip designed for touring that is convex in the center so it fills your hand evenly. I forget the name, but most shops call them. You have to cut the ends off with a razor, so your bar ends will fit.

What size are these bars/throttle assy? I don't wanna get some "fits most bikes" pkg and find out these are some bizarre Italian mm size :-/

Nope, made for standard 22mm (7/8") handlebars.

Maybe he should take advantage of the monkey grip issue and just buy heated grips. People seem to love them except for the big size. He might find the size perfect and get hand warmers all in one.
