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)
rode my suzuki boulevard m109rt to st. pete's beach (from iowa city, iowa) last month but didn't see the go cruise throttle in the catalogue until just before i left. so i ordered it and had it shipped to my florida destination. voila! it worked as advertised on the 1,400-mile trip home. kept the bike running smooth and even long enough to either give the hand a rest or perform some minor task much more easily. for the money, it is an excellent device.

I like it!! A vista cruise won't work on a C-10 concours because of way the throttle cables are mounted. I tried a throttlemeister but it just won't stay adjusted and is more difficult to activate.. I really missed the cruise control on my GL1500 Goldwing. The Gocruise will hold the setting any time I want to take my hand off the throttle. (Posted on 2/3/12)
