While having a "you can't see it" trailer hitch installed up on my Burger in Kingsport,TN by genius scooter specialist Joe Wolfe, I was fascinated to hear that he also has adapted an aftermarket cruise control to Honda Helixes and Silverwings. J.C. Whitney is the source for the electronic unit. He states that it would be no problem to put on on my Burger. It only involves the speed sensor. Joe's phone is:
423-246-7076.
Did Joe give you a quote for the cruise control (installed)? I'd be willing to ride the couple of hours to get it installed....and have a perfect 'excuse' to tour around the NC/TN mountains.

Just got off the phone with Joe. He seemed to think it shouldn't be a problem mounting it on either Burgman although he has yet to install one of them on the Burgmans. The price for the electronic cruise part is $119 and according to Joe has doubled in price over the last couple of years. A vacuum bottle costs $12 and must also be installed in trunk using about the space of a quart jar. It takes Joe about 8 hours to install the cruise (removing body panels, running wires, mounting the sensors, installing the mounting bracket for the comtrols, etc) and he normally charges around $150 for the installation. Total price for the cruise control installed should be around $300. Expect to spend the day in the area or leave the scoot.

Joe also offers trailer hitches and trailers for scooters. He has 3 trailers in stock and has parts to make more if needed. Hitches sell for $150 and the trailers for $750. The trailers weigh about 65 pounds and are often used with 250cc Honda Helixs so pulling them the 400 should be a breeze. Joe doesn't currently have any pictures posted on the web, so I invited him to the forums and suggested he post some pictures here.

Joe was down at Scootercade last week. He saw out famous (or is it infamous?) moderator Paul. Didn't actualy meet, but someone pointed Paul out as 'A moderator on the BurgmanUSA forums'.

If you wish to contact Joe, you can also email him at : [email protected]

It looks like a nice system, a little more than the Vista or the 'O' rings, but I like the brake disengage idea.
Daryl,

Yeah. Looks like a nice sytem. But at $199 ... it's not just a "little more". :wink:
