Throttlemeister?!?!?

Any of you guys use this "cruise control" device for trips? I was riding home from Navasota last night (cold as )and I wanted to take my hand of the throttle as it was cold and starting to "fall asleep". I know they aren't for eveyday use, but it would have been nice to have it. Anybody got input on throttlemeister or similar devices? Thanks for the inout in advance.

is this the same as that thing you clip over your throttle, and use your palm?

NO, you replace your bar ends with these modified "bar end" looking deals. I believe you twist them to the spot you would turn in the throttle to kep a constant speed. Thus, you can remove your hand and not lose speed due to your hand coming off the throttle. I think that is how they work :confused1

you can always use your left hand to control the throttle when your right hand gets tired...

not a good idea when you're cold, wearing your dark shield and doing 80+mph trying to get home Although it is possible to do the left handed trick for a short (very short) period of time, I find it more difficult to keep a straight line. I wouldn't like to see my response if something happened in front of me while riding left handed.

I had one and used it all the time when I rode. It is a very nice piece of work. I would suggest that everyone that would like to give their wrist a break get one. I used to ride down the freeway with no hands. It was quite relaxing.

Wouldn't it be better if they put the throttle and clutch on the foot pegs and just the gear shift and brake on the handgrips. Then it would be more like driving a car. Think about it for a minute and you will see that the idea could work.
Go ahead and tear it apart now.
