Omni-Cruise Universal Cruise Control/Throttle Lock Slip it on to any size grip, on any bike. Snug the thumb screw. Go Ride. The Omni Cruise is a universal fit motorcycle throttle lock. It is a new concept in easing the stress on riders wrists. Not only universal fit, it also installs in seconds to provide fully adjustable cruise control on any bike and only when you need it. That means it isn't using up any valuable grip space when you don't need it, and when you do, the Omni-Cruise Throttle Lock is the thinnest on-grip motorcycle cruise control on the market at only a quarter of an inch wide. When you hit that unavoidable boring stretch of road and your fingers begin to go numb and your wrist is starting to ache, simply lift up on the Omni-Cruise control thumb lever, and it takes the weight of the throttle return off of your wrist. Pulling the brake lever will lift the Omni-Cruise, thus turning it off. Also, rotating the throttle off will lift the Omni-Cruise, turning it off. To decrease the maintained speed, simply rotate the throttle off to the speed desired. To increase speed, either roll on the throttle then push press down on the Omni-Cruise with your finger or press down and roll the throttle at the same time. It is simple to install, simple to adjust, and simple to use. In seconds the Omni-Cruise can adjust to fit anything from a 50cc pocket bike to some of the largest cruiser grips ever put on a bike. Anything from scooters to cruisers, super sport to super naked, and any bikes in between. If it has a throttle and a brake lever with 3.25 clearance, the Omni-Cruise Cruise Control fits. It is designed to ease tension on the riders wrist, and not to enable single handed operation of a cycle. Your right hand is your gateway to speed control and removing your hand completely increases your response time in the event of any unforeseen event (like a rogue suicidal squirrel). Simply put, keeping your hand on the grip increases your chances of living through a bad situation no matter what throttle assist best fits your needs. Omni-Cruise requires a minimum of 3 1/4 of clearance from the grip to any objects that may interfere with its operation, including hand guards and low mirrors in front of the grip. Many times these interfering objects can be adjusted, but not always. Please measure if there is a risk of interference. Features Installs and comes off in 6 seconds with gloves on At 1/4 wide the Omni-Cruise takes up less grip space than any other on-grip product on the market Utility Thumb Lever flips 180 out of the way quickly for bikes with close-proximity plastics and windshields and provides ergonomical thumb activation Weather proof Body CNC'd from premium 6061 USA-made billet aluminum Pivot nut made from 7075 premium grade Aluminum Lower Slide (contacts brake lever) CNC'd from Acetol to prevent wear on lever Plastic Thumb Knob on Stainless Steel screw allows easy adjustment with gloves on without removing your hand from the throttle Stainless Hardware with high end Brazilian 17-7 Stainless spring washers 1 year warranty

I commute and do some ADV stuff. Needed a replacement for my Tourmaster Transition that was VERY long in the tooth. I bought this in Hi-Viz and have a new favorite! Great American Cut (as Anthony describes it), ventilation is amazing on my KLR. There is almost nothing to nit-pick on this coat. If you are looking for a great dual sport coat or something for commuting it is terrific.
The only minor issue is that they made the waterproof pockets on the front WAY too small. About the only thing I can put in there are an extra set of ear plugs. Not sure what they designed these for because the non-waterproof chest pockets are GIANT!
Revzilla shipping was lightning fast! (I think it arrived about 30 seconds before I finalized my order) And as always all of the videos are a huge help. Thanks Anthony and everyone else at RVZ for doing a terrific job!

Bought these last September for a late fall ride in Colorado and Norther New Mexico through the mountain passes. They were fabulous. Not a lot fo venting but there is enough that they didn't feel too hot when it got warm.
If you are looking for a pant that will ofer good protection and 4 season riding, these are it. They were fantastic in 30 degree Michigan winter weather.

I bought this helmet to use for commuting on a KLR. I wanted people to see me, and there is no missing this helmet! It sticks out a lot.
I also decided to take it on a 1,000 mile adventure ride through the back trails of Northern New Mexico and Colorado the first week of October. It performed very well.
Pro's
-Felt lighter than my 5 year old Shoei
-Fantastic visibility
-easy to take off and on
-LOVE the quick fasten and release on the chinstrap!
Con's
latches were sticky which led to almost not getting it open
-airflow is a little less than expected though that worked okay on days in the high 30's
-Plastic latches for the front... just not sure how strong they will be if needed....
alot of helmet for the money and I would reccomend it highly... it was a far better product than I expected for the money.
