Crampbuster Cruise Control
Works as advertised, but I stopped using it.
It does what it say it will, and does it pretty well. But after using it a while, the annoyance of it being there when I didn't need it outweighed the advantage of having it on longer cruises. The spring return on my throttle isn't all that strong, so as long as I'm wearing a glove just the weight of my hand will keep the throttle in position without needing to grip it with my fingers. So, the Crampbuster in collecting dust.

This is the best 10 bucks I've spent in a long time!
I purchased a Crampbuster just before making the trek from Southern Arizona to Sturgis and back and it saved my bacon! I'm sure that my hand would've been aching at the end of each day. Instead, my hands stayed relaxed (except in the rain). It worked flawlessly.

Will really help releive the cramps, I have mine set at the position for 70 mph, just basically lay your hand over the cramp buster for a relaxed grip and ride.

Simple, foolproof design. Excellent product.
I put these on all of my motorcycles. They are semi-flexible molded plastic that wraps around the throttle grip and allows you to rest your wrist without having to grip the throttle tightly. Not quite cruise control, but the relief is very welcome, whether it's a short ride or a long tour.
The Crampbuster won't rotate toward the rider without pulling the throttle, which is exactly what it's designed to do. Pushing it away from the rider is easy, and rotating it out of the way for slow-speed maneuverability is easy.
This is one of the best $11 that I've spent on motorcycle accessories. Installation takes seconds, and it can be easily removed if you ever decide you don't want it installed.

Not for everyone, but it worked for me
I have been having some issues with my hands going numb on some longer rides and looked for a quick and cheap solution. I came across some talk on r/motorcycles on Reddit with a good amount of positive reviews on the Crampbuster.
I purchased it before a 200 mile camping trip down in central Florida. While I still had a numbing effect from my bike's vibration, I was able to adjust wrist and use the palm of my hand to hold the throttle in place while still being able to grab my brake. This relieved most of the numbing in my hand and I was able to adjust my hand to new positions.
I used the wider model over the skinny one. The plastic was flexible enough to make installs a breeze, but still strong enough to hold its proper shape.

Inexpensive way to reduce hand cramps
This has helped me immensely with numbness and cramping in my throttle hand on long trips. Cake to install. Also a really inexpensive solution to a pesky problem.

Cheap, simple, effective. Easy to adjust and transfer between bikes.

cool idea but
I think it's basically unneccesary. I can get by just changing the way I grip the throttle. It takes getting used to (it's a pain at first) and in the end it just seems like an as seen on TV gimmick. It's taking up space in the top of my tool box.
