At the progressive motorcycle show in Phoenix this past weekend there was a booth for a product called omni cruise (http://www.omni-cruise.com). I talked to the guy in the booth he is a rider and the guy who designed and builds the throttle lock. It's different than other throttle locks because it's not a part that stays on your bike, it's more of a clamp. So you can have it in your pocket while riding then when you get to a stretch of highway you can pull it out put it on the grip and set your speed. It fits on most hand grips so if you have multiple bikes you only need one omni cruise as long as it has clearance to rotate on the grip. Part of the clamp goes around the grip and the other part rests on the brake lever to hold the throttle open. It can be disengaged by rolling the throttle closed, pushing down on it with your thumb or pulling the brake lever. You can leave it on the throttle and up out of the way when you don't need it then just push it forward and tighten it down when you want to use it again.

The guy builds them all by himself and was proud to say that every piece machine and tool used in the process of making them is 100% made in the USA. He was a pretty cool guy and gave my friend and I $10 each of the price since we both bought one. So I got it for $80 less than the throttlemeister throttle lock which I think looks horrible and isn't as easy to disengage. Looking at the design of the throttlemeister it looks like it could engage on its own when you aren't expecting it if you've left it tightened down.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I'll put a review in here once I do. But the build quality is top notch. At first glance it looks like some type of Leatherman product. Just because it's a small company doesn't mean it's made cheaply. Also I like supporting small companies over big name companies.
