Talking Cheap cruise control

Just wanted to show off my new cruise control. It works great and is really cheap.

so do you have to slip the bungee over the grip to "turn on" the cruise control?

The only thing is , you need to remember it is there. I popped a wheelie showing off yesterday and it came up a little too high.

OK, not into wheelies, but could sure use a rest on the ol' throttle wrist. How do you work it?

I only use this on long rides. I don`t move it while riding. It just holds the throttle where it won`t spring back.

oh, I get it, it's a friction lock. I've seen large rubber O-rings used, as well.

Guess I should have been wearing pants...

Not sure that's safe though. I guess it'd be ok as long as you remember to force your thottle off before you brake. In an emergency it could be criticaly time consuming.

You may have something here. If you could connect it so that when you pull on the brake it relases the friction, you could have a patentable idea.
