Cruise control/throttle lock

What do you guys do when riding long distance as far as not having cruise control?

Here's the best $20 you'll ever spend. Such a simple, yet effective solution.

I use the Kaoko throttle lock. It works great.

I have to admit to not understanding the need or desire for these. The palm of my glove(s) grip the throttle with no hand or wrist strain. What am I missing?

I'll have to admit I know nothing about the Tiger. On my LT for long stretches I love the cruise!! For one thing it is nice to let go and stretch out my arm often. I have bad circulation and after awhile in the same position my arm starts tingling. I hate that. I will always have a cruise or throttle lock.

I have a Kaoko throttle lock but only use it to remove my hand for very short periods of time. On my BMW I use cruse control all the time when on the highway.

Hi there!

I think I'm going on the Go Cruiser Throttle Control. Just 1 question, is it 7/8 or 1"?

Thanks!

They make it in both sizes. They are the best, much easier to use than any other throttle lock.
