Default Handlebar Grips

What's your recommendation for after market handle bar grips? I have large hands and am looking for some that might be bigger or have more cushioning as to provide better support for my hands.

I put a set of "Grab On Grips" covers on my '90 Kat 750. They are closed cell urethane foam, so they don't really absorb water. They are freakin fantastic. You just spray them with windex and slide them over your old grips and let them sit for 24 hrs. Mine haven't budged all summer. Comfy but not too spongy, and absorb vibes like nobody's business. I had the same issue, stock grips were hard and too small, made my hands cramp up. No issues at all now. I don't remember the exact cost but they were under $20 on Amazon.

Any particular size? I notice they have several different sizes on Amazon. Particularly the diameter. How easy or difficult was it to slide them on?
