I"m using stock, but will probably opt out for aftermarket gel when the time comes... or when i decide to install heated elements undrneath....   Headscratch

When I switched from the stock bar to a Superbike type, I replaced the smooth, hard OEM Honda grips with  gel. No big deal, I think they were $10. Vibration has never been an issue with this bike.

I use the BMW ribbed grips on my ST1300, KLR and ZX11.

Stock at the moment. Will be putting on progrip 719 gels when I put on the grip heaters. Very comfortable grip and they look good as well.

Broken glass on an old tyre is good but I've found barbed wire improves my hard man image no end.

Other than that I still use stock... Not really found a need to use any aftermarket grips. Of course I could be missing out on nirvana but at least I'll be that little bit richer and at the moment I'm still ignorant   Twofinger

Progrip gels are great for sorta-buzzy inline 4s like mine, but I've settled on BMW Sport-Grips as the most comfy while also providing good grip and feel.

None of the above. I use Grip Puppies (foam) over the stock grips.
