I concure. Locking or otherwise defeating the spring return feature of the throttle is a dangerous thing to do. Yes, they have cruise control on some high end motorcycles but as Frozenveinz said, factory cruise control systems are very sophisticated and cancel out with break inputs and have an easily reached 'Off' button.

In an emergency/panic stop situation you want that throttle to drop out 'NOW' not after you've fumbled around trying to move a lever on your handlebars.

Don't do it.
