Cruise-Mate Motorcycle cruise assist
Some parts don’t fall in the category of sexy after-market accessories but are still very much sought after by many bikers to improve their riding experience.
Example, the Cruise Mate, a lever operated throttle/cruise assist invented by Thomas Lane in his garage a few years ago.
First, let me mention that Cruise-Mate is not a cruise control device: it doesn’t release when applying the brakes and needs to be turned on and off manually. But you will still be able to turn the throttle when the Cruise-Mate in engaged (turned on).
What about those Harley-davidson bikes equipped with a factory lock?
Thomas Lane explains The original star wheel provided by Harley-Davidson is very small and tucked under control making it very difficult to access. The original equipment star wheel also utilizes a very fine pitch thread, which takes several turns of the star to engage or disengage the throttle lock feature. Cruise-Mate is engaging and disengaging twice as fast as the original star wheel device. Cruise-Mate also incorporates an infinitely adjustable lever style handle for easy access by the thumb of the operator. Cruise-Mate will typically apply sufficient pressure to hold the throttle in place with 1/4 turn or less of the handle. Sold with complete installation and operating instructions including pictures every step of the way.
