I noted form reading a few of the posts that some are mentioning tingly hands form riding gripping the throttle. I not all that experienced a rider but from reading some other boards I saw recommendations on the Throttle Rocker. I got one and have been using it for a couple of days on my Gold Wing and it really makes a difference. Will put one on my wife's new Burgy when she gets a few more miles and more comfortable with it. And the great thing is that it costs less than $10 bucks. Here is a link describing it. :D (Got mine at a Harley dealer for $7.95)

I want a throttle rocker for my Burgy as well. Just for those long Highway rides when you want to stretch those fingers. We have a show coming up in our area soon, so I'm holding off untill then. Just packed the Burg away for the winter last night so I dont really need it right away.

It is different than cruise - as it stops you fighting the return spring.
I use both on my bikes.

But OP - caution your wife with the palm throttle cuz if it's set too high the Burgman will jump - some people don't like them for that

I've got two throtle rockers and I love 'em onlongishor boring rides! One for the Burgy and one for the Harley.

When I was doing a regular 150 mile commute a few years ago I had a BMW K1100 and used one on it too.

There are those who say they are the spawn of the devil, but used carefully and wisely, they art great. Normally about £4 in the UK.

I started using a CrampBuster a few years ago on various bikes. Since I generally ride in a group, I find I maintain a constant speed better. I used to rubber band badly... I twist it down out of the way when in town.

Yup, I also have and use a Throttle Rocker and for $10 bucks (approx) I can't think of a single item on the scooter that improves the comfort of my rides to the same degree. It does take a little bit to get used to, and getting it set in the "sweet" spot of angle takes a few adjustments, but after that, simply wonderful. Have used one for years now.

I like the one with velcro strap as I find it's more secure than the spring friction one but also harder to adjust.

Just curious...why would you need a throttle rocker on your goldwing? It already has cruise.
Seeing this thread was started in 2003, it would stand to reason the OP was referring to an older Goldwing he owned at the time of this post.
Was cruise control always a standard feature or was it an option 12+ years ago?
That could be why he was using one on a Goldwing.

I believe this is the most ancient zombie thread to ever be resurrected.
