New And Improved Go Cruise Throttle Assist For Motorcycles
As much as we love ripping around in the canyons, we realize not everyday can be spent in the hills. Sometimes (most times) we’re stuck freeway slabbing trying to get from point A to point B. That’s why we’re big fans of cruise control on motorcycles. If your steed doesn’t have cruise control, have a look at the new Go Cruise Throttle Control.
Designed to act as a poor-man’s cruise control, when you’re at your desired speed, push the Go Cruise down with your index finger until it rests on the brake lever. The Go Cruise has enough grip to hold the throttle in place and take stress off the rider’s wrist. To reduce speed, simply roll the throttle off manually to override the device. Installation takes seconds and doesn’t require any tools.
For 2014, Go Cruise Throttle Control has been re-engineered with a new, proprietary polymer blend material and revised cross-section that gives the new version increased grip, strength and durability. Go Cruise suggested retail price is $19.95, and is available in two sizes to fit motorcycles with 7/8-inch and 1-inch handlebars. For more information, visit www.thecycleguys.com.
