The best bit of touring kit I fitted to my sports tourer is the tank grips. I do lot of two up touring with my partner (and panniers, top box and tank bag) so the dynamics of the bike are far from the ‘review’ specs. Prior to the grips I had difficulty getting enough grip during emergency or hard stops. Similarly in heavy cross winds, my knees would slide all over the place, something rain would exacerbate. My only regret – that I didn’t fit them sooner.
I no longer fatigue as quickly on long rides. I can just respond to changes without that nagging fear my legs would just slide up that polished tank. My advice – get a pair of tank grips and enjoy your ride more.

I purchased the top of the line Techspec tank pads online two weeks before a planned solo bike tour of Tasmania on my 2001 Yamaha YZF R1. Of all the touring parts I purchased for this trip, the Techspec tank pads were easily the best purchase. They provided long distance comfort and definitely reduced fatigue in my legs for the long, boring trip from Sydney to Melbourne. And when it came to riding the insane hair-pins and sweepers in Tasmania, the grip level from knees to tank was brilliant, providing me with huge confidence levels and greatly assisted my riding ability.
I feel these have helped me improve my riding style and for that reason alone they are worth the purchase price. Fantastic, well recommended product!
