Wonder if you worked it right if you could have a pulley to run the cable through to get the darn bike up on the center stand..... LOL

I'm going with handlebar switch. I figure I or a buddy will be straddling the bike and I don't want another piece of long wife and the bulky remote.

I got both. The handlebar is great for sludging through the mud going forward straddling the bike but there will be times when that won't be possible (Like when you're using it to retrieve a mate's bike using a tree, etc). It also gives me two controls in case one gets disabled.


I also installed the Kaoko throttle control to keep the Revs up and the battery charged.

I did get a flat right after it rained and the ground was so soft that even with a plate under the center stand the bike would sink so I wasn't able to get the rear wheel off the ground. About 100 yards away I saw an Oak with a nice size lower limb so I rode down there, threw a line over the limb and I was able to get the rear wheel off the ground.

A really handy tool that I even use quite often around the house.
