There have been bunches of posts of throttle locks and other techniqies to take the strain off the right hand on longer trips.
Here is a shot of my ORING throttle lock in the off position.
And here is a shot with the ORING in the on position.
In this shot you can see where I have twisted the throttle about a 1/3 of its travel and the oring holds it there. Note that even though the throttle is held in a position, even with the oring engaged, full range of throttle motion can still be used, so in that rare emergency where you need to de-throttle, you just do it, rather than having to disengage something prior to backing off the throttle.... and it is about as cheap a solution as you can get!
You can also see in each picture the newer style Throttle Rocker, that uses the velcro strip. I have found that with proper effort one can secure the ***** thing so it works right. Between it and the ORING, long rides are a breeze.
