When it comes to giving a motorcycle the convenience of cruise control, the conventional wisdom often states that the best (or only) way to do this is by installing a motorcycle throttle lock. There are websites and promotional materials everywhere that declare this as the best option for motorcycle owners. But conventional wisdom is often wrong and, in this case that is no exception. Throttle locks certainly do their job, but a throttle “assist” — rather than a lock — is likely a better option that has flown under the radar for some time.
Endurance is the name of the game in long distance riding, as any experienced motorcyclist will tell you. Cruise control is not just a luxury when making a lengthily trip; it’s a necessity. Nothing beats the feeling of you and your Yamaha on the open road, but without cruise control you may quickly find you’ve taken on a nasty stowaway called rider fatigue. If you’ve ever made a long trip without cruise control you’ve likely found yourself forced into taking a break because of a sore shoulder, wrist, or cramped muscles. But cruise control isn’t just expensive; a locked throttle makes navigating winding roads and dynamic cruising a headache as well. Fortunately, finding a quality Yamaha motorcycle cruise control option doesn’t have to empty your wallet, or negatively effect your control.
