Many bikes have really skinny and hard grips, they can be a bugger to hang onto all day. Not only do Grip Puppies make the grips bigger and more comfortable but as the material is err... grippy, you don't have to hold on so tight.
Stuffed grips, not roadworthy?
Give Grip Puppies a whirl.

AAArgh... Fedex sent my last batch back to the UK from whence they came. What a cock up! I'm trying to get them back and it shouldn't be more than a week or two.

Grip Puppies are soft foam covers which slip over your existing rubber grips. They’re rock solid when they’re fitted and they’re a really simple solution to reducing vibrations and the fatigue it causes when on the bike.
They do feel soft and comfy but be aware that they increase the diameter of the grips slightly and might take a little bit of time to get used to. Having said that, I find that I didn’t grip the bars as tightly which made me more relaxed at the controls — and that makes a big difference on long trips. Simple to install, just apply a little soapy water to the inside of the Grip Puppies before you slide them over your existing grips and give them enough time to dry before you ride.
They should also be viewed like tyres, expect them to wear them out. As a rough guide, expect to go through one set of Grip Puppies for every two sets of rim protectors.
Installed them on the chief's Ducati and she loves them. Easier and softer to grip and eliminates vibration.
