i always wanted to have one, but it just never found the right one.

I rode to San Marcos 2 weeks ago (30 miles south of Austin) to bring my bike up to school, I didn't have that much trouble with my wrist hurting it was mainly my inner hand/palm from gripping.

I would definitely recommend at least the cramp buster or the throttle meister.

just my .02

I used my last one ALL the time.. Even on short straights. Half the time I will set it to the speed I want, and pull some Gixxerbill antics.. Sitting on the back seat.. goofing off.. Only on the highway in the middle of nowhere tho

You need to squeeze the tank more and hold yourself up with your abs. It will make it much easier on your hands.. esp when braking.

I have seen the throttlemiser and it looks good, however I am always on a budget.

I tried a Vista Cruise for about $35 (On a 1200 Bandit) it clamped to the handle bar by the kill swith and supported a throttle clamp by a brace reaching across the switch but out of its way.

It was OK but I had to set the clamp for more resistance than I cared for or it would not hold speed for more than a few minutes.

Also tried a cramp buster its OK but you still have your hand resting on the control.
Maybe thats a good thing.

Based on the amount for riding you are doing and all the positve feed back on the throttle miser sounds like you should spend the money for one.

WTH? Throttle assist? Somewhere, an old Harley guy is crying silently into his beer over this issue.

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.
hey man, remember you posting up on another forum when you came to Houston a few months back.
Hope you are enjoying the riding here in Texas.
