Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Tiger 1050 The Kaoko Cruise Control is perfect for anyone looking to reduce fatigue and strain on your hand and wrist during long distance highway riding. Each Throttle Lock consists of a simple, ingenious and robustly designed friction nut that is integrated with a special Kaoko bar end weight. The Kaoko bar end weight is closely matched in appearance and weight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEM) bar end weight. The Friction Nut has a left-hand thread. It must be adjusted so that it makes light contact with the rubber throttle sleeve. The Grub Screw is set to provide the necessary resistance on the friction nut. This may be adjusted periodically to take up wear. To Engage Twist the throttle and friction nut simultaneously with your right hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired position. The friction nut is designed that the rider may still open and close the throttle. To Disengage Roll off the throttle while gripping the friction nut. The throttle should open and snap closed freely. Features Easy to operate, even with heavy winter gloves High quality, compact and durable design Super smooth action Takes less than 5 minutes to install Very little maintenance is required Less wear and tear on throttle cables and grips Better MPG Note Does not include a replacement left side bar end weight.

Expensive, of course, but still the most elegant solution I could find. I'm very happy with this product. Looks great, well made, high quality, and works well. Locks the throttle - no slip. Fiddly to install (had to grind the pilot off the plastic washer). Also fiddly to engage, but not bad once you get used to it. Recommended.

RAM is good stuff. Solid and well made. Got the short arm to mount my phone. Works like a charm.

So far I have only used this GPS locally, but it seems to work great. It paired easily with my Sena headset, but getting my phone to pair at the same time as the GPS has been difficult. GPS is easy to use, mounts to the bike easily, and is simple to wire to the bike for charging during use. Price was right so I went for it. Glad I did. Revzilla was awesome as usual.

I like Olympia gear. This is my third piece from them. Their gloves in particular are fantastic. Most mesh jackets I looked at skimp on protection, IMO. One of the reasons I bought this jacket is it has an articulated CE back protector as opposed to a simple piece of foam. It is still light on protection compared to my old Fieldsheer mesh, though. The jacket is very light. The jacket lining seems kind of fragile though no problems with it yet. This thing flows a ton of air. I can't wait to try it in really hot weather. The waterproof liner is a nice addition. I'm not wild about having to zip both the liner and the jacket when the liner is in but I recognize there's no other good way to make sure it is watertight/rainproof. I love the hi-viz/black version. Very sharp!
Yes, I recommend this product.

These boots are very well made, provide good protection and look great. They are EZ on and off which was important to me because I bought them primarily for commuting. They started out stiff but are breaking in nicely. The toe area is tall and initially I found it awkward getting my foot under the shifter. This is going away as the boots break in. I could possibly have gotten by with a size smaller, not sure, but if so it would have minimized these issues. Great boots. TCX is a premium boot at a good price in my opinion. I still have a pair of Oxtars that are probably my favorite boot ever.
Yes, I recommend this product.
