    A very good way to injure or kill yourself. That's probably one of the stupidest ideas I've ever seen. Just imagine yourself in a panic stop situation fumbling to get that thing released and your engine/bike/you slowed down.

    The reason cars, motorcycles and most other vehicles have spring loaded to idle throttle controls is for immediate response in a bad situation. Electronic cruise control systems have the means to release when the brakes are applied or a cancel button is pressed.

    This accessory might be fine for long distance, highway cruising on a motorcycle but has no place on a motorized bicycle.

    My advice? Forget it! That thing can hurt you!

    From numbness? If so, it's caused by excessive vibration. Check your mounting to make sure everything's solid.

    This may help too:
