Gorgeous. Where did you purchase the grips? I don't see them listed on North Fork's site.

That looks great! =D>

I know some don't like the look nor feel of the Edge Black Widow grips, I tend to like them alot. It may be like my butt dyno with my car and it's all in my head but it seems like they make the rods a little more sensitive to light bites.
