HOMEMADE CRUISE CONTROL
After a few long runs, 700KM or so, My wrist would cramp up and become very painful, some kind of motorcycle cruise control was needed, just so I could rest my wrist from the dreaded throttle cramps without having to keep stopping. I researched various cruise controls from the very expensive electronic ones, 500 Dollars plus, to the cheaper cam lock mechanical cruise controls.
I did not like the electronic variety because of cost and plus there is so much electronics and wiring to go wrong, the mechanical variety, whilst only being around 50 Dollars were not made specifically for my bike, mostly Harley’s, so experimented with various rubber bands and came up with this.
I bought every size of elastic band imaginable and tried them all out, this is the kind that worked best, fat and very rubbery, as used by most postmen.
It takes two rubber bands twisted around and placed between the throttle grip and throttle mounting, it works great, I have had no more of the dreaded throttle cramps since using this on long runs. One US Dollar is the cost for a life times supply, and when no longer required simply use a screwdriver tip to hook them out.
