Default Tingly arms

Today after several relatively short trips around the block and such I decided to go for a "bit" of distance. I live rural on a dirt road. I have some friends that live about 4+ miles from me. I rode out to their house on my 500HP motorized bicycle (OK, maybe 2 HP) and learned something. The road has about a jillion "riffles" which some refer to "washboard". I fought to keep the bike in tire tracks that were left by cars and trucks but I was not successful most of the time. Reason is that cars and trucks are not so plentiful. You can see more snakes than cars on that road. As a matter of fact for the entire 9 or so mile round trip there was not ONE vehicle (and thankfully NO snakes). The guy I visited told me about some kind of sponge hand grips that will keep my arms from tingling due to the road conditions. Anybody have any info on them?
