I'll definitely order one. Turrible shame riding season is limited at this point
You have to remember to consciously close the throttle when getting on the brakes hard. A couple of times with the Go-Cruise I hit the brakes and clutch and red-lined the engine. It's a strange feeling, like sensory overload. Hard on the brakes, traffic coming to a halt, check your mirrors and suddenly your engine is screaming. "WTF? Oh yeah, the throttle lock, damn, what do I need to do, oh yeah, close the damn throttle" All in about 1/4 of a second. You'll get used to it...
