Talk about back to the future. In the good ‘ole days, no self-respecting motorcycle would leave the factory without rubber knee grips on the side of the tank, useful for hanging on and hence stability.
Now, British company Oxford has redressed the situation with their new Tank Grips; an oil, chemical and temperature-resistant set that provides paintwork protection and grip. There are two styles, one for textile pants and the other for leathers. Each pack includes 2 x grips with pre-moulded cut line for a custom fit, backed with a 3M adhesive.
