I have your Snakeskins on my KTM 1290 R; I've had them on my S1000RR; and I've been trying to devise a solution to lock on to my GS when I'm riding it like a sport bike. I love the product for sporty riding and though it's not quite as grippy as Stomp pads, it's way more attractive and still gets the job done. By far the preferred solution to being able to lock on with the lower body.
May I offer some constructive input to your GS product design? On the GS, to get a good lock on for my outside thigh/knee, the place I need the grip is lower than where you're showing the pads in those photos. Up that high I don't think they'll be functional unless you're a rider with very long legs. My thigh/knee wants to grip in against my 2016 GS on the black tupperware piece just below the tank and at the seam boundary between that and the tank. It's really a pretty awkward spot to try to design a grip pad, I get that. But if you made a thin strip that ran along the bottom of the tank and across the top of that black cover, it would provide a more effective place to lock on with my lower body.
Obviously, BMW didn't give much thought to these ergos for sport riding - it's not a sport bike. But any who, that's the place where a grippy pad would be most useful.
Are the pads for the top of the panniers grippy as well? It would be nice to have something there that held things more securely that are strapped down on top of the panniers. It would also need to be a material that is easily washed with soap and water. It'll get pretty nasty on there.
Thanks for making a great product!
