What a difference! I installed it in about 2 minutes. Took it for a ride to see if it'll hold. YES! It holds! It'll take some seat time to be able to do it without thinking about it, but it really is easy, just learning to do it while holding a steady throttle will take a little practice. Once set, you might have some creep up/down, however a slight adjustment will get it set and it will stay. You can easily move the throttle while it's locked. So you could come to a stop, take off, get to speed and let go. A slight turn of the wheel will disengage it completely. To be clear, this is a throttle lock, not a cruise control, so it can't take into account for hills and valleys. However, when that throttle hand needs a break, you'll be able to do so.
Don't waste your money on the cheap stuff, get this and do it right the first time. I highly recommend this! (Posted on 15-06-06)
