After a freezing Bristol – London passport dash two weeks ago for a friend and blue fingers, I decided enough was enough.
So this weekend I had some affordable heated grips from bike it installed from the helpful duo of Kellaway motorcycles. I had considered the Honda set (£150 plus install, no thanks) and some Oxford options, but plumped for the in-store no frills bike it grips (£45).
First reports are positive and my only gripe is that the grips themselves feel a little rough and BMX like, but no doubt in a few miles I won’t know what the old grips felt like.
Once I get a long single trip out of the way (next week to London) then I will know if they will last the winter.
