I installed the Universal Vista throttle lock yesterday and got a chance to test it out. While its not a true cruise control that holds the speed constant, this is a clever device that could prove to be very effective in relieving wrist cramps on long rides. There were more expensive options available, including electronic cruise control systems, but I wanted something simple and cheap. I’m not a big fan of interstate cruising anyway, so I would be using the device only on those flat, long stretches of interstate when I need to get somewhere fast. When set, the device holds the throttle at its position, but it can be easily overridden manually in case of an emergency. I’ll get a chance to test it out on the interstate this weekend on the trip to Bardstown, KY.
