During one session of California Superbike School, Keith Code revealed that John Hopkins had to replace his handgrips after nearly every session as he squeezed them so hard he wore them completely out each time.

I still have the original hand grips on my 21-year old K1200LT with 220,000 miles on it! Sheesh!
