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.

In the case of riding with the throttle closed there is no issue with the cruise maintaining the speed. However, if riding along, you close the throttle, that means you want to slow down. For the cruise to try to maintain speed, would be wrong. BMW cruise on their motorcycles has always operated in this way.
