    Purty, always wondered if slipping would be an issue? Now I know.

    They look nice for sure. I figured with gloves and boots on the slipping wouldn't be noticeable. Yeah, I was wrong...

    I have the same on my pitbull and when they get wet they become very slippery. Miguel does sell rubber sleeves that go over them.

    Really? I haven't seen them on his website?

    I have the chrome dimple ones and they are indeed slick! I've had them for 5+ years and if a good gust of wind comes at a certain angle my damn boot will just slide right off.

    Im about to put a bunch of miles on the rigid since the K9 isnt avail and just get my feet more comfortable. My goal is to finish the year strong shooting for 4k miles before the year rounds out!

    I was going to use some heavy duty heatshrink tubing for now and see how that holds but if he has rubber I'd rather do that. I really only need it for the foot pegs cause I'm always wearing gloves anyways when I ride. Deerskin fingerless gloves make it stick!

    I am on my second pair. (I replaced that exact pair if someone is interested)

    I have the flame set now. I dont find the grips slippery unless my hands are wet or sweat. The pegs kinda are though. Took me a min to get used to.
