Now who is get a aching throttle hand ??? Well..... this little gizmo uses the weight of your hand to keep the throttle open & at 7 I thought u would give it a go.

I prefer this Jonny Rockers one as it acts virtually like a poor man's cruise control and you can go hands free if you want to - used it on the last bike and now the Multi

2500 miles in ten days, badly smashed wrists some 40 years ago, the wrong side of 65; aching hand or wrist?...not in the slightest. Get a grip exerciser and build up some strength.

For free on wish - just pay the postage!

Took about a month to come from China and used it on a recent trip to France.

It really helps to release your grip on the throttle and reduces any strain on the hand.

By the way, I ordered Ducati summer gloves on wish which I received a few weeks ago.

They are a beautiful pair of gloves but if ordering be sure to order a size larger than you need.  These were under 20 per pair.

I would recommend the Kaoko.  Very effective and looks great.  As far as exercising the forearms, yes good advice for any rider.  I have found that there are times on long trips that the use of my right hand for adjusting things is helpful.   :001:

I am waiting for Revzilla or Twisted Throttle to get the Kaoko off back order. I have a Go Cruise that I got on Amazon for $31.30 but while it does work somewhat and lets me shake out my wrist once in a while I want to try something better. I worry about cranking it down too tight so it won't roll off easy so it does let the speed slowly fall off. I concur with the exercise advice, I started using grip rings and doing more forearm exercises and notice much less fatigue on long trips or is it just this bike is much more suited to me or better rider triangle than previous ones I have owned?

Oh yeah!  Very similar experience.  I have to agree that the bike is MUCH more suited to me and my riding style than my last bike (Harley).  It is night and day.
