You'd think that they could at least put a friction knob on the throttle somewhere, though.
They've done away with that since the late '80s, supposedly due to liability. They even quit building the throttle housing with the hole for the friction screw. As to the ride by wire system, both that and the electronic cruise seems to work very well on the K16, so offering E-cruise on the forthcoming GS would seem simple enough. I'd probably opt for it.
