check this thing out,,, so simple yet it works ! i thought it was well worth the 20 bucks. it looks a little funky on the bike but you can put it on or take it off in 2 seconds. i tested it out on a 300 mile run to americade bike rally at lake george ny this week and i'll tell ya, my right arm never felt so good. cruise control is key,,, and this little gadget was right up my alley. ride safe & enjoy !:choppersm

Interesting product. just one question. when you pull brake level does it disengage automatically? or have to twist throttle forward?

Don't get me wrong... I like this product, but since it doesn't automatically kick the "cruise" off when the brake is applied..... I see some serious litigation in their future.....

Neither does the Vista Cruise. This looks like it may be easier to engage.

Lots of throttle lock type cruise units on the market, and have been since the 1970's...Never heard of any lawsuits yet involving any of them, and they don't disengage with the brake either...

Not sure about that version of cruise control but for 20 bux I'd say it's worth a shot. I've got a vista cruise (was on it when I bought it) on the vtx and hardly ever use it. When I travel a long distance on the bike it's mainly to the mountains of TN and it's virtually worthless for that being a lock instead of an actual cruise devise.

When we went to the dragon last sept. I used the vista on I-75 for a while in Ohio but once we crossed the river bridge it was clicked off and rarely used.

I got the $35.00 throttle lock on for years now.This looks like a good product serves its purpose,hell i cant see paying for one of those top end ones that cost as much as a new tire.

That is what the clutch is for. Pul it in and you stop driving the rear tire.

Looks like it is designed for plain rubber type grips and ISO grips would be to big for it though. For $20 looks like it would work.
