I use both a cramp-buster and a throttle lock. I've had my neck broke and fused twice. My hand will go numb quicker than the bike can hit highway speed. Finding that sweet-spot for cramp-buster location is tricky but worth it. I couldn't ride without it. I use the throttle-lock much less often, as most roads just aren't straight and flat. It does take some getting used to using the cramp-buster but it just takes practice. It took a lot of practice to learn to keep my index finger covering the front brake, but I can't seem to ride without doing it now. In addition to the cramp-buster, I focus on shoulder position and head position to alleviate the numb hand.
edit, forgot: I don't have cruise on my Suzuki but I did have cruise on the bike I sold to buy it. It's surprising just how little I actually ever used it. It seems the infinitely variable needs of a motorcycle require my hand on the throttle.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
