I have had a few pairs of Grip Puppies on my past bikes and my RS came with them. These are good when my gloves grip them well but my current Dianese summer gloves and the Puppies don't agree. They have somehow polished each other, becoming slippy.
That's why I liked the soft ATV grips; they were nice and sticky. I wear leather gloves, never had issues with slipping, even in the rain. And the price was right. I still have a pair in my spare parts box; the price tag on them is $18 CDN. That was a few years ago, they're probably $25-30 these days. They used to last me a couple of years of hard use on the GS. Remarkably, they didn't insulate the heat from the OEM grips very much. Hmm, maybe I should put them on the Roadster 馃槀

As above, recently used Grip Puppies and my synthetic gloves have been a slippery combination but it could be all my fault, I'm thinking.

I sometimes spray silicone around my controls and may have inadvertently contaminated the poor Puppies and my gloves :unsure:

Into the washing machine they go!

For anyone thinking of grip covers there's 3 common brands.
Grab On is closed cell foam for around $15 US https://www.amazon.com/Grab-Grips-Grip-Cover-1-25in/dp/B000WJAH5M/ref=sr_1_3_mod_primary_new?crid=RC2UBNL7EQRV&keywords=grab+on+grip+covers&qid=1679234875&sbo=RZvfv//HxDF+O5021pAnSA==&sprefix=Grab+on,aps,213&sr=8-3
Grip Puppies is the same material for around $20 US
Grip Buddies look like they have a slicker surface and attach with Velcro which doesn't look comfortable $30 US https://www.amazon.com/Grip-Buddies-Smart-Skin-OGB-AB-SS/dp/B07MG8BWS1/ref=sr_1_3?crid=19DVQ8A4UU48X&keywords=grip+buddies+motorcycle&qid=1679234825&sprefix=Grip+buddies,aps,1197&sr=8-3
