Sorry for the highjack!
Not really sure Ortonomics. I read it somewhere on the project forums or cycle word, or Hornets Nest or sport-touring.net or stromtrooper's website or FZ1OA or ..... . I'll have to do some searching. But unless I find another bar that helps I may have to stop riding. There are times when I can see my hand on the throttle and I'm moving forward down the road but I swear I can't feel anything but the fire from wrist down - carpal tunnel survivor w/o surgery (maybe not much longer if I continue to ride though).
So Again I really don't know if the sand works but am willing to try it to keep riding , er, beginning to ride safer.
I read about Progrips, again at some site I frequent above, and decided to get the 177938 Progrip RVGS Street Gel Grip 719 1 $ 9.95 from ridegear.com . But too much cushioning will reduce my feel for the road and nuances in what the suspension is saying to me (doesn't everyone's suspension talk to them too? - who said that?) so that could pretty unsafe too.
I now ride short trips and can shake my hands at my sides often by either pulling in on the clutch so the bike coasts while I shae my throttle hand out or I simply take my hand off the throttle and shake it out while coasting. Sure It's still unsafe to ride with numb hands and constantly needing to take one hand off to get some feeling back into it.
I was into cycling until the carpel tunnel crept it's ugly head. I ended up riding recumbents from Bachetta - hey they need to make a motorcycle. Didn't Dan Gurney have a motorcycle project sometime back - here it is:
It may look funny but maybe that's what's in my future. Or maybe a
Good luck and keep me/us posted on what you end up doing.
