Today after leaving my riding group after arriving at our destination and lunch I rode home through the open countryside by myself. I normally joy ride with a group and use my bike as I would a car to go shopping etc. I never realized how useful the Brakeaway cruise control really is. It is hard to use while riding with a group because no one can keep a constant speed like a cruise control. I live in South Florida where we ride all year long. But never have I ever enjoyed the ride home as much I did today. The temperature was 80 with no wind, my clay like ear plugs worked wonderfully to stop the wind noise. The cruise control let my hands relax while maintaining a constant speed. I've had Burgmans for two years now but today I really appreciated mine.
