Cruise control anyone?

So, for those of you that weren't able to get the Audiovox electronic cruise control before they stopped offering it, I found this site. It's a bit more pricey, but a heck of a lot cheaper than what else is out on the market. As soon as I can scrape some $$ together I think I'll get one.

2017 Indian Roadmaster (current ride)
2003 VN1600A (Traded August 2017 to #1 son for a Bushmaster AR)
2001 VN750 bought 4/19/08 w/2309 miles(Sold April 2010 with just over 12,000 miles)
VROC #33035

I believe they are referring to a true cruise control rather than a throttle lock.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Yes they are talking of a true cruise control..one that keeps the bike at a constant speed whether its going up a hill or down one.

You can wrap a mini bunge cord around the inside of the grip where it meets the control box and have a pretty easy to use throttle lock...
