I've been using cheap Chinese heated grips for many years. The heating was weak, rubber got worn fast, right side grip was prone to cable break. I've to change grips every two years.
Now I have Oxford grips. Heating is much better, sufficient even for 0F rides. Doesn't wear, cables are better quality too. I don't like button control, that's the only down side.
By my deeds I honor him, flat twin.
