Makeshift Cruise Control - If you're sick of the blister on your thumb from holding your throttle in place, check this out. I had the idea last week and it works great, sorry if its been posted before.

Okay, so what you do is lightly loosen your throttle handle, and pull on it until the throttle 'drags' on the end of the bar just enough to hold its position, but not enough so you have to 'crank' on it(that could be dangerous). Then you just re-tighten it while still pulling on it. Don't over-do it, but you get the idea. I've done this on both my bikes now and love it. No more blisters!
