I had a Throttlemeister on my ST1300 and it was nice. Well constructed, high quality, heavy bar ends. It works really well once you get the right pinky dexterity to twist that thing while keeping the throttle engaged. If I was going to add a mechanical cruise again though, I'd probably go with a Brakeaway.

That thing looks awesome! We should get a group buy on it if it works on the 9'er.

I called them and they said it doesn't work with the Renthals, but it will work with the stock handlebars. They said that they make one that is compatible with the Renthals in the future. (the Renthals are a smaller diameter inside the bar)

throttle lock

I've been using this $16 throttle lock on my 919 with Renthals for the past couple of years and it works real good.

I'm using it on my Renthals, you just have to increase the ID to 5/8" to fit their smallest plug. Really happy with it so far.

+1!

I like how your hand stays on the bar (avoids the very bad habit those cruise controls could motivate you to take your hand off the bars). The CB1 is thin enough to stay out of the way, but still takes getting use to not to hit it by accident. You rotate it CW until the desired cruise speed (onely one) is horizontal level supported by your wrist.
