I have the bar end throttle locks with the heated grips. I had the dealer install them before I picked it up. Not really crazy about the system. It works but that aftermarket 'breakaway' product seems more user friendly. I might end up taking it off my Shadow and installing it on the Rocket.

There's also the low tech approach of a "Throttle rocker" or "Crampbuster" (or some no-name variation.) Basically a bit of plastic that wraps around the throttle grip and lets you hold the throttle open by resting the palm of your hand on said piece of plastic. It doesn't lock the throttle in place, you don't have to keep readjusting it like a throttle lock and it still offloads your hand from having to constantly grip the bar.

It doesn't allow you to take your hand fully off the bar, though.

Works great for me at least with the original heated grips.

Cruise Control

I've been looking at these, and would be interested to know if anyone has had any experience/s with them.

UNTIL, I get so motivated to change out the throttle locks, I use the crampbuster. It's a must on trips.i The plastic expands a bit eventually but an additional rubberband between the supplied band the unit serves quite well. Crap, for $10 what the heck, it works

They look like they would do the job, but at $1,000, I think it would be cheaper to have wrist surgery to fix the problem, but thanks for the suggestion.

Why doesn't Triumph bring out a set as an accessory? They already have over 50 for the Roadster, so one more won't hurt

Cheers

I know this is old stuff, but I thought I would respond anyway. I wrote Triumph about the cruise control issue. I actually received an answer back. I was told, that I should consider buying one of the new bikes that just came out with a crusie control. They also stated that they probably wouldn't be doing any legacy work. Sorry guys, but this isn't a business that wants repeat customers.

The rocket has all the electronic hardware on it you would think a software solution could be possible.

I would be more than happy to scan the letter and send it to anyone who would like it if they are interested. Could I cut and paste it here? It's well written but I just don't appreciate being told to buy a different bike after just buying the Rocket.
