Something that is so simple, so efficient, so natural to use should have occurred to someone decades ago, but we had to wait all this time for it. This has to be listed along with the paper clip, the button and buttonhole, and the tea bag as an example of the perfect invention. (Posted on 8/23/12)
I have been looking at after market cruise controls for some time. They are either too expensive or complicated to install. The Go Cruise is just what the Dr. ordered if you are on long hauls and that's probably where you will only use cruise controls......all of the other times they are not needed. Go Cruise is great because you can remove it when not needed! (Posted on 8/3/12)
Best $20 bucks you can spend to save your wrist, hands and forearms. I paid $150 for a throttlemiesters on the ZRX and RC51 and $125 for a Kaiko on the Super 10. Then I saw one of these. I'll keep my more expensive units and bought one of these as a back up when I rode to Alaska. I can throw it in the tank back and swap it from bike to bike in about 5 seconds. Great idea, great price and functional too. Thanks Aerostitch. (Posted on 7/30/12)
It was simple to install, easy to use, totally adjustable, and a reasonable price. Time will tell how durable it is . . . fit my 2011 Suzuki Burgman 650 first time, works like charm. It takes up about a half inch on left site of throttle so it seems to crowd the hand a little, but actually becomes an asset on long rides. I like it . . . (Posted on 7/12/12)
I Have been using them now for a year, and have bought 4 of them. they work pretty good not great, they break real easy. for the price, it can get costly replacing them.
They really could rethink the design, i have already modified a couple and made them work much better!!!
I do believe, i have bought my last one!
best of luck (Posted on 6/22/12)
When this item arrived I thought; "$20? Looks like it 's worth $6. After using it on a 2 week tour of the southwest (including a 660 mile day across Kansas and Arkansas) I decided it was worth $50. The ability to release my grip on the throttle kept me in the saddle much longer than when I used a "cramp buster" type product. It took a few tries to perfect my technique and frequent minor adjustments had to be made but after a while it all became quite easy. One other point to be made; while shutting the throttle or squeezing the brake disengaged the unit, I used my thumb on the gap where the two "arms" of the product hold the grip to decelerate. Otherwise I would find myself coasting at a higher speed than I wanted. This also allowed me to maintain my speed without alarming those behind me. (Posted on 6/19/12)
I'm happy with the Go Cruise Throttle Control. I had already installed a more conventional throttle lock , but was not all that thrilled with it. My particular throttle lock required a 90 degree rotation forward to set the lock. Some rotate back, mine rotates forward. There are pros and cons to each. The problem I had was that, as I set the lock, there would be a modest, brief deceleration as the lock was being set. Since I often lead a small group of riders, this unexpected deceleration was a problem for the next rider in line. So, I thought I'd give the Go Cruise a try. Installation takes about 10 seconds - seven of those spent just looking at the thing, getting ready. In operation, the Go Cruise is dead easy. A simple pressure with an index finger and the Go Cruise is set. It simply rests against the brake lever and, through friction with the throttle grip, overcomes the return pressure of the throttle spring. After a couple of minutes practice, it's a completely comfortable thing to do. There really is no learning curve. When it's time to stop or slow down, simply twist the throttle closed to overcome the Go Cruise friction and you're right back at the beginning. The only fly in the ointment is the friction that I mentioned. Light friction means a gentle push of the finger sets the lock. But light friction also means that vibration will allow the throttle to slowly start to close itself. Go Cruise understands this and has provided a rubber band that can be placed around the throttle grip so that the Go Cruise will have greater friction, but will, in turn, require a firmer push with your finger. Choose your poison. For me, it's a perfect solution. I set the Go Cruise, then, if I really want something more than a short break for my throttle hand, I can set the original throttle lock with no deceleration. I really like the combo. It works for me. Is it the one for you? That's up to you. Understand the limitations and you could be good to go. Good luck and ride safe. (Posted on 5/16/12)
