I've done this for years and wanted you guys to know about it. Go to Walmart and get two rolls of tennis racket grip replacement tape. Wrap one layer around each handlebar grip - PERFECT fix and feel for those with large hands. Also quells vibration really well. Very comfortable. Use one layer of electrical tape over the end of the grip tape. The grip tape is adhesive, but after some time will start to come undone unless you put some electrical tape over it.

Cheap and awesome improvement. Total cost - about $4.00

Sorry, I still for the life of me cannot figure out how to post pix inside the window, despite the best efforts of some of you to tutor me. I'm a little dense in this area. :doh:

On Imageshack, copy the line that has the "direct link to image" and then use that with the img and /img tags.

EDIT: I can't get it to work now either. Weird.

Ok, for some reason the "Direct" info that they give you has extra stuff on the end. Take off whatever falls after ".jpg"

So it's {img}http://img229.imageshack.us/img229/6236/bandit001ew2vr6.jpg{/img} with [ ] in place of { }
