A friend of mine uses some special rubber damper made to take up the vibration in bows he buys them and shoves them in the open end of the bars. Said they work awesome but are $$.

Along with the iso grips that Bull117 suggested i would recommend a seat with a backrest so you can totally lean back and relax and gently hold the throttle.I notice a big improvement with it.

Vibration

I have ISO grips on my VTX 1800S. I took off the left side handle cap, inserted a rubber tube as long as the handle bars filled with BBs. The tubing was about 9/16" in diameter and the full length of the bars.

This made a huge difference by dampening the handle bars vibration, about an 80% improvement.

I think they make bike gloves with a gel pad as well. I never tried them but I can not see why they wouldn't help.
