This is my review on MCCruise, one that I have installed on my V-Strom DL650
I'll start with the fact that I am NOT
affiliated in any way with Home Page | Motorcycle Cruise Controls
Before getting to this farkle, I tried all sorts of throttle locks and cramp busters. I thought I was happy with the Omni Cruise, which had to be adjusted every now and then or you had to accelerate on hills or readjust it when you shifted position in the seat and the wind slows you down. Also the desired speed was a pain to get and set it at that exact point.
When I purchased my bike, the MCCruise was already installed and it was one of the main selling point for me. I had a good look on their website prior to purchasing it and was going to get it on the new bike anyway.
It pretty much works like a car cruise control, accelerate to a point and press "SET" to set it. If you break or pull the clutch it disengages but remembers the old setting. All you have to do to get it back at that speed is press the "RES" (reset) button and will accelerate to the previous setting.
It will maintain that speed going up/down on the hills or regardless of wind conditions.
Once the speed is set up and you are cruising along, if you press the "ACC" / "DEC" button, it accelerates or decelerates by se set amount. My bike is set to increment by 1km/h but it can be setup to increment by 2 km/h or more.
The controls are illuminated and be clearly seen during the night. The colour is orange and is not bright, just the white writing is lit.
I can't imagine my commute on the freeway or my long trips without this cruise control now. It's by far the best farkle I have on my bike.
