I have and it is still on my bike. Quick and relatively cheap to free up your wrist.

The thing works okay, but just okay. Often it doesn't hold cruise well causing my bike to slow down. After I put some rubberized tape around my grip, it held better, but the grip was too good and it became dangerous to slow down in a hurry with. I carry it on my bike since it is so small and light, but only use it if I'm on a long straight stretch with little traffic.

Omni cruise.. in the vendors section. Takes that type of unit but made from aluminum and adjustable with a thumb tab to move it.

Superior product and cost 37 bucks to Canada. I've had several types of throttle locks over the yrs and after fiddling I made most work pretty well. There's no fiddling with this this, works perfect from the get go.. highly recommend.

cheap, works fine. I believe I saw this years ago done with a hunk of coat hanger wire. How many years ago?....not sure, but it was on a new Victor 441.
