Cruise control

Anyone fitted anything to the throttle for long journeys in the absence of a proper cruise control?

I have cruise control and rarely use it. Always having to stop using it due to poor lane discipline by other road users

Dont start me on bad driving! Good point but would still like something to ease the wrist ache on long runs.

Possibly this  .... as I used on my Street Triple before having C/C on my Tiger, ....

.... simply let's you relax your finger grip and use the heel of your hand to hold a constant speed when cruising on motorways etc.  :028:

P.S there are probably cheaper versions, just that I knew the above as a reference.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Prior to buying my Tiger with cruise control I used one of these Go Cruise throttle control gizmos on several bikes. Inexpensive, dead easy to install, works great     http://www.2wheelride.com/throttle_pro.html
See you somewhere down a twisty road......

I have an issue with the beginning of arthritis in (specifically the right) hands and need something to be able to relieve the numbness now and again and am leaning toward the KAOKO product - Google it, but rather order directly from South Africa as the price seems to be far better at around 70USD (55GBP) as compared to 150USD on Revzilla. Has anyone tried this neat piece of kit?

I've used the Kaoko devise on my previous tiger. It works well and is well made. My new tiger has the cc therefore don't need the Kaoko. If interested I can let you have it for a good price.

On old Brit bikes there was a spring loaded screw to hold the throttle open, needed it with hand signals.

Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.
