Question SPORT BIKES, LONG TRIPS!!

has anyone use some type of grip lock for long trips and cruising , so you don't have to keep your hands on the gas the whole way riding??

i know that it could be dangerous but sometimes it would be nice to have for long trips.

Throttlemeister works great for those long straight roads.
A bit on the pricey side, but they double as weighted bar ends.

They have throttle locks at cyclegear. Only like 15 bucks. I cant ride without one. My hands get tired fast. Just lock and unlock with your thumb

I had a cramp buster on my bike before it was wrecked and I MISS it badly. My hand has been cramped for the past week and a half.

I know they sell 'cruise control' for bikes. Just look it up!

my gf was looking at an 06 cbr with the throttlemeister on it. i was hoping she would have let me take it off and use it but she didnt buy the bike. im planning a ride to austin in the next week or two, so i am going to buy one of the throttle locks.

i have not seen the lock from cycle gear....
is the thottlemeister worth the extra $ ??

I like it better than the cruise control.

I use a "throttle rocker" it costs around 10bux and it'll pretty much fit any handle bar,you just apply pressure with the bottom of your palm and it'll twist the throttle for ya.

Used it on my VA to TX trip and it worked well,i leave it on my bike since I'm so used to it already.

I have a Throttle Rocker that I use on my KZ. It takes a little adjustment but works well and is quick to put on or remove as needed.

I have the heavy bar end type. Works well, but sometimes needs adjustment when the end of the throttle tube wears. Great investment cause my right hand goes numb in 15 minutes on the highway on a sport bike.

Sweet. Thanks posting this thread up. Im riding from Tampa to Detroit in 2 weeks. Im gonna try one of these. I've done two 1300+ mile trips without one (Detroit-Houston & Hoston-Ft lauderdale) and it does kind suck after a bit. Hopefully this will help with some of the fatigue issues.
