It's time to get new grips for my KZ305. I am considering grips that are thicker in the center than the ends.
I have never used this type of grip, but they look comfortable. What are pros and cons over standard grips?

I'm not a fan of those bulge type grips.  But then again, my hands aren't overly large.  I think the real answer to "which grips are best" needs to be answered by the user.  My favorite are Oury grips.  They have a lot of rubber under the hand which helps damp vibration.

I can't believe I'm the only one using Avon grips. I've used them on all my bikes for ages now...

Those look just like the ProGrips that I use on the KZ 1000 LTD. They work great.
