    I guess i need to learn how to spell LOL
    Understood everything you said.

    Not to hijack (or would that be highjach?) this thread, but where did you get the breakaway cruise control? And, how exactly does it work?

    Thanks.

    I moved this as it had become a highjack, although not intended as one.

    My 2c: The Brakeaway should be the only style of throttle lock on the market. Any cruise control that doesn't release with application of the brakes is a safety hazard.

    I really like it's fit and finish, put one on a friend's 650, It's well worth the $200.

    One the best accessories I've put on my bike, it's a little pricey but I've said it before "you can't put a price on safety". The breakaway cruise control was the safest mechanical throttle lock that I've ever seen and it works exactly as they say. I purchased mine from cruiser customizing.com

    My buddy has one, and it's on my short list. Our Yami dealer is an authorized agent for Brakeaway and he got his installed for $150.

    Thanks, All. It certainly does look like what I'm looking for.

    Mikey, no problem on the breakout from the original thread.

    I just recently bought one from Ebay and it is a nice piece. It is very well made and works great. I have yet to ride the bike with it yet as it is still winter here. It installed in about 20 minutes and is very solid. Engagement is simple and absolute. Disengagement is just the same. Well worth the $200.

    Thanks for the confirmation. It's moving up on my mod list very rapidly. Just not sure yet how many long rides I'll be taking this summer.

    Thanks again.

    It's all mechanical right? Doesn't do anything if you hit the rear brake right?

    What about those plactic palm rests. Anyone try one of those?

    It doesn't get in the way of the palm rests, as long as they are installed where they are supposed to be at the outside end of the grip.

    It is all mechanical attached to the front brake so the back brake doesn't do anything to it. In panic stops you are on your front and back equally so the front releases it for panic stops.

    I don't know how the rest of you all ride, but with the exception of the very gradual slow downs, I always hit the front brake first. This will disengage the Brakeaway instantly. Otherwise there is another button to disengage it so you don't have to use the front brake. One way to engage it, two ways to disengage it. If you go to their site you can read the installation sheet for it. It will clear up any questions on how it works.

    I hadn't even thought of putting one on my wheel, but, after reading what you guys had to say about it I think I might go and get one. Thanks for opening my eyes.

    I have a friend who has one and let me ride his bike to try it out and i must say it is great. Going this week to my local dealer to get one.

    SPIROH142,

    After installation it is quite easy to use. Push a main button with your thumb to engage. To disengage either push the small thumb lever, or a gentle tap on the break lever. Over the years I have 3 different brands of throttle locks and had good luck/success with all three. But of the three the Brakeway is the absolute best.

    I have a problem with tendonitis in both arms, tennis elbow, funny I hardly ever played tennis, but I did swing a lot of hammers. Anyway I have throttle bosses on both sides. They allow me ride without gripping the handlebars, just rest my hands on the bosses and go.

    My only thing with the breakaway is, DOES IT WORK WITH ANY AFTERMARKET GRIPS?!?!? I have not gotten this answered ever, and I don't see where it says what it needs to make it work. Maybe it would work if the grip had a section with an OD of x and that OD had to remain constant for y inches wide. Something like that so I could figure out what grips it may or may not work with. I don't want to buy one and not have it work with the grips I'm getting ready to order!!

    I spoke to the local dealer and they say they work well with ISO Kuryakan aftermarket grip and the Breakaway website confrims that.
