Altering your hand position on a long ride is second nature but making sure your hands actually stay put, isn’t always easy.

As you can see, a pair of TOGS now resides on the bars of my Stooge, I’ll get them out into the Winter gloop and see how we get on. I’m sure there’ll be a few tweaks and fine tuning required along the way but if initial feelings are anything to go on I’m hoping for good things … I’ll keep you posted.
