I've got the Rizoma Sportline billet grips with the Rizoma conical slider bar ends from PJ's.

Love the looks, really compliment the black Rizoma handlebars, mirrors, rearsets and overall theme of my bike. The slider bar ends are really trick and match the slider foot pegs on the rearsets. The quality, fit and finish is outstanding, as with all Rizoma products. The grips took a bit of getting used to at first, but now I really like the feel of them. The rubber grip insert isn't very padded, or very wide, so your thumbs are actually resting on aluminum instead of rubber. The grip is kind of ergonomically curved though so it actually fits my hand pretty well. You definitely have to always wear gloves when riding and if I had to say anything negative it's that they seem hard after coming from gel grips.

Here's pics...

So that's it, one response from me? Surely someone else has feedback, I know there's more Rizoma grips out there!

Wait until Monday. The board is always slow on the weekends.

I've got the Rizoma Sportline billet grips with the Rizoma conical slider bar ends from PJ's in black just like Sbeau's set up. I love the grips, I'd get them again for sure. I also have the black Rizoma AL bars I think they compliment each other well.

I would also advise using gloves unless you're taking a short ride. Just say PJ's has some Lux Rizoma grips those look pretty cool, but I like the shape of the Rizoma's sportline grips, the curve fits very well in my had.
