Cruise control and throttle "roll-off"

Does "rolling the throttle off fully" (i.e. against the stop) disable the cruise control? If so, I'm kinda mystified...

This is the most relaxed position (for me, at least), and would seem to somewhat defeat the effect of a CC.

The TEX I test-rode a while back seemed to behave this way. The electronic CC (Tuneboy) I installed on my Duc MTS1200 does NOT behave this way (and is very nice).

For LD riding I find it very relaxing to roll the throttle fully closed, and "rest" my hand against the throttle stop. If this disables the CC, then...hmmmm.

Anyway, just wondering...thanks for any responses.
