Apologize for the quality but it's late and I was in a hurry. (Most of) my Sunline stuff came today and it's more beautiful in person than any picture could do justice. The color is pewter with a slight blue-ish cast. The stem is a work of art. Saddle's the only thing on backorder (white - - of course!)

Not sure where the manufacturing takes place, but Sunline has been around in MX circles for over 20 years. It was started by Motorcycle Hall of Famer Dave Ekins and was bought by Eddie Cole (former Kawasaki factory pilot) in 2004 and was in turn acquired by Valencia Sport Group (661) last year.

Have not tried the grips . . . brand new product, so I guess we'll find out. I'm a little hesitant, as I loved my Yeti/ODI's, but time will tell. Had to have the color

They come in thick or thin, depending on your hand size, which I though was a nice touch. These are the thins.

Yeah, I was going to say those look mighty thin.

My "who makes them" comment was a latenight joke, as they are logoed pretty heavily, but there you go again busting out some encyclopedic knowledge of the parts you ride. Really, people should send stuff to people like you for free

Hey now, I thought discussing sponsorship was strictly verboten.

Oops; it was late and my irony detector was not entirely tuned up

I have to admit that I Googled that tidbit out of a TransWorld MX (or somewhere like that) article. I knew Sunline had been around a while; but I myself had no idea how long. It's fun when people ask me questions like that because it gives me an excuse to learn something too. It caught my attention, because I do remember Dave Ekins and Eddie Cole. . . and Torsten Hallman, Preston Petty and even Rick "Super Hunky" Sieman (first editor-in-chief of Dirt Bike, now with off-road.com) and his infamous GYDBT.

I'll ask my sponsors to take that under advisement

I liked the girls for Sunline products in Bike Mag.
