Default Re: Throttle to ATV Style Thumb?

I use to have an old skidoo with a thumb throttle, and I liked it. The build I am working on will have a thumb throttle because my twist got wrecked last year when I dumped my bike. The reason ATV and snowmachines have thumbs is that in a panic or loss of control the thumb is less likely to accelerate, where as a twist or even a brake lever type throttle you may be more inclined to grip and accelerate when out of control or "startled".
