Excellent, thanks. I'll probably tackle that before summer.

I too am interested in an electronic cruise control. Thanks to Rolex and others, I think I will spend the $$$ on the McCruise unit. It is motorcycle specific and brand specific. The guys at McCruise have already answered several of my questions very quickly. I think the install might be over my head so I went to my local trusted mechanic and he said he could do it. When I sent that info to McCruise they told me -"No problem and if he needs anything tell him to shot them and email or call." And they provided a number. So far,great customer service and I think it will continue. Will keep you posted on how it goes.

I have one bike with a electronic cruise. OEM BMW. Works as good or better than any you'd find in a car. All the others, including my V2, have the thumblock. I never feel cheated by the simple ones. In fact I think they are just as easy to use and reaching down to add / remove a touch of speed is just as normal as checking my mirrors.

Which ever way you go it is worth it for long hauls not have the right side of your body handcuffed to one position.
Will the thumb lock you provided in the link fit a DL100A?

I have one on mine. Mind you they are "universal" so one thing you will need to do is to capture the locator tab on the device so that it does not free-rotate. I used two zip ties. Other folks use safety wire, etc.
