Throttle lock advice

Hey guys I plan on doing some touring with my cruiser and would like a recommendation on a throttle lock. It will be for my yamaha stratoliner. I have seen throttle locks for as low as $10 and some up to $200 So what do you guys recommend??

I got a cramp buster for 2-3 hour rides and a go cruise throttle lock for 3+ hour rides. Both were recommended by other MH members in the past and have worked out perfectly.

How is the go cruise throttle lock? Is it fairly durable? It looks flimsy in the pictures...

.Breakaway makes them just for the stratoliner and it looks and works wonderfully. theyll fit over stock or aftermarket grips like the Avons I have. you can manually set and disengage also you can tap front break to unlock it so you can have quick reactions on the road.

That breakaway throttle lock is certainly nice but is out of my price range for now. I have decided to go with omni cruise which is similar to go cruise throttle lock but is made of metal.

It's a single solid piece of plastic. Looks flimsy but it would take some effort to break it. I guess if you pulled the two prongs apart too far when putting it on.

I have used all kinds of to hold speed.

Throttle locks remind me of the stick I used to use on the big rigs fuel peddle before they had cruise control. Not really safe.
Throttlemeisters are the better of that type of option, but the crampbuster is my go to.

I would much rather get an actual cruise control device (i.e vacuum or actuator type), but I am just too damned KLR-ish to spend the cash.

Check this guy out. Omni Cruise.His are similar to the Go-Cruise, but CNC's from Aluminum with a delrin pad that rests on the brake lever.
