Crampbuster Cruise Control
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.

Works as advertised
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.

I bought this... It was a little small for my bike, but somehow got it on... I took it off after two miles... It just gets too much in the way, and feel like it is dangerous.

Great for the Slab But...
Yes it's a great inexpensive device that will save your hand/wirst on long trips; however, be advised that it can be tricky around town or off road. IMHO it makes the throttle way too sensitive when you're in stop and go traffic or up on the pegs during off road rides. It's easy to take on and off but I don't know how long it will last over time being installed and removed often. In any event, like I said its great for the slab and cheap.

First time rider
About 1.5 months in riding. I found my hand cramped from either clutching or holding the throttle in continuously.
I was told to get this so I did, the narrow one.
Sometimes I find myself coming to a stop and hearing an engine roar, as if there is a biker behind or beside me. That's my palm touching this cramp buster, just slightly. Though I normally have music going through my SENA's so I won't hear the revving until there is a skip in the beat. LOL
Otherwise, great product. Just takes time getting used to it initially.

So simple. So inexpensive. So nice.
For $10, this product is easily the best mod you can make for long haul comfort. If you don't have cruise, this is a must have for any long distance trips. I used to be able to do 100 miles or so at a time until I started feeling it in my wrist. Now, 300+ miles and I can hardly tell I've had the throttle open that long. It is easy to install, and for day-to-day driving, easy to remove. I ordered the wide one, but would rather have the slimmer one. It isn't as obtrusive during stop and go riding.
