Grips and cruise control

I've got large hands and the older I get I don't see things getting easier as far as cramps and aches. When I ride usually around at 175 to 200 miles my throttle hand starts aching pretty good. I'm interested in a 2 fold approach to the issue some type of thicker grips and a cruise control. Have any of you guys ran across thicker grips that work well/hold up and which brand/type of cruise control are quality/reliable?

I think you have the right idea with bigger grips, too. Just be sure if you get bigger aftermarket grips and buy a CC system that it wil work with the larger grip diameter.

I like the look and write up on the Throttlemeister, I've tried the cramp buster I liked it except I kept forgetting it was there and tend to bump it around. I'll check into the grip puppies. Thanks for the info guys...

On the subject of bigger grips I use these on my FZ6 to help out with vibration http://www.casporttouring.com/cst/mo...0/GPSMALL.html

Aright, I've ordered a set of grip puppies. I'll let ya'll know how they work out I'm still eye balling the Throttlemeister it looks and sounds pretty good. It looks like it will work okay in conjunction with the grip puppies and I'll probably get the heavier end weights, though vibration hasn't been terrible.
