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.
