Go cruise throttle lock

It does exactly what every other throttle lock does......locks the throttle. Speed will vary with terrain...

Sorry pics are a bit dark

More cruising....All you have to do is cut an inch off the plastic handlebar cover, to make these generic throttle locks work...Just leave it on there when you sell the bike. No need for those $200.00 plus smart kits.

Does the phone holder interfer with the brake lever, grip etc ? Can you see the phone easily while riding ? My phone has GPS and this is a less expensive way to mount the phone vs a ram mount.

Get a real CC or go home.

A throttle lock is NOT a CC. If you live in Kansas/Oklahoma/Texas/Nebraska (etc.) where you have pool-table flat roads for miles, a throttle lock may serve you well.

It won't elsewhere.

Unfortunately, the only true CC that's commercially available as an add-on for a motorcycle (that I'm aware of) is prohibitively expensive.

Having owned and used a McCruise CC unit for 7+ years now, I can attest to its efficacy. It runs the same roads as our CC enabled cars in the same way.

Is it worth the price? For me, yes.

Regards,

Dan

Dan.. for sure a Throttlelock is not a Cruise control.. but it's better than nothing.. I use mine all the time on 4 lane and on the 2 lane to set it like at 35 MPH.. shake my hand for a second.. relax it and then click it off and back to it.. On the 4 lane I usually set it between 75 and 80 MPH (speedo indicated- so really between 67 and 72 MPH.. slows down on an up hill to a little over the speed limit (60) and then picks up to maybe 85 or 90 (onthe speedo) on the downhill side.. That's OK.. it works just fine fo rme..

I just got back from an 800 mile trip and was thrilled to have my throttle lock style cruise control. I don't need it all the time, nor do I want it all the time, but for fifty bucks it sure is nice to click on every now and then. Helps with boredom too, lol.
