FREE VORTEX GRIPS

Who ever is in need of some motorcycle grips post a picture of your current grips. I will pick the worst ones and I will send you a brand new set. Contest closes tomorrow at 8:pm, with how much traffic this site gets posting some grips in decent condition might get you a win.

I agree, this site is sadly slow with the amount of riders in the LA/SD general area.


I'll play, my track bike. The left grip slowly slides off and I have to keep banging it back on when it gets warm!

I could win this...too bad I drove in this morning. Depending on traffic I might be able to squeeze in a pic before the cutoff.

hbwesman got you beat, his look more worn down. Just use some safety wire on yours to keep them from sliding until the next contest lol.

Hey Mike, I've got Griplock (glue) if you wanna borrow it. I can bring it on the 11th if you're gonna make It. Worked well for me.

I've also got an extra pair of grips I'll probably never use again if anyone needs a set (see the picture). They're not fancy but they're in great condition. One still has my old throttle tube on it so you'll have to remove it. Reply here if you want it.
