sweet cruise control option! does anyone have one?

Looks like a great purchase and thought I would see if anyone has one or something similar and get their opinion on it. I plan on doing many more 150+ mile rides, and on the freeway, this cruise control would make for a sweet ride. Also just thought I'd share this incase anyone else was looking for the same.

here is a youtube video of it

and the website I found it on

I bought this from cycle gear which works okay....but in the end you still have to have your hand on the throttle.

That's pretty nice but expensive. I just stick a girl's hair tie between the end of the grip and the plastic housing for the starter button. Works pretty good.

Looks like it works sort of like a Throttlemeister which I have on my VFR. Not sure I would have survived my Iron ride without it. Tried crampbusters, but for me they got in the way too much.

I couldn't agree more especially on short rides.

Guitarman introduced me to using an appropriately sized O-ring. It didnt work perfectly for me (my speed would fall off over a few miles), but took a lot of stress off of my right hand, and I could take it off for short periods of time.

I had both a throttlemeister and a cramp buster on my old ST3, of the two I used the cramp buster more often. If nothing else, it was nice to be able to just use my fingertips and thumb to hold the throttle and rest my wrist. The throttlemeister would lose speed over time which irritated me, although it was a useful as a bar end weight.
