    If you keep it up I'll have to create a frequent flyer program!

    I'm doing assembly right now and will have yours on the way in a few hours.

    Looks like I mis judged sales... going to run out of bands some time next week and will be out until first week of march! woops!

    Well, I've had it for more than a month now, but not gotten around to using it until last weekend on my Yamaha TDM900.

    It makes a fantastic toy for fiddling with in front of the TV by the way.

    Beautifully engineered; just fun to play with.

    So, how does it work?

    Bloody well actually.

    Firstly, you can slide it on over the end of the bar without having to force the jaws apart (unlike some others).

    Secondly, the design of the rubber grommet is inspired; when installed it provides a channel between two raised ridges which keept the Omni-Cruise in line (whereas the plastic version sometimes needed a bit of alignment before applying it).

    Thirdly, the infinitely variable tension works a treat. With the plastic version I found I had to build the grip up with self amalgamating (rescue) tape to get the thing to grip and keep a constant throttle. On one of my bikes I overdosed on the tape, turning engagement of the cruise into a two handed job. With the omni cruise, if the bike seems to be gradually losing revs you simply wind a bit more pressure on the set screw, re-set it, and Robert's your mothers brother.

    Fourthly, even with sufficient tension to keep the throttle in a constant poistion, backing it off was very smooth and reliable (i.e. no brown stain moments).

    The only shortcoming (if you would call it that) is that the Omni-Cruise is quite noticable on the handgrip. I find myself reluctant to leave the bike unattended and leave the Omnie-Cruise on the handgrip. The previous (plastic) version was less noticable and less expensive, and more prone to breaking, so I just left it there and took my chances. The Omni-Cruise looks like an expensive and well made bit of gear, and I think it will prove more attractive to theives.

    Who would have thought that a product could be too well made and too well finished?

    In summary, I'm totally delighted with the product, and happily recommend it to you all.

    To make matters better, it is made by an ADV inmate, Brian, who has invested a lot of time and effort in designing and producing the product, and who, co-incidentally, seems like a very nice bloke from the conversations I have had with him via PMs.

    Cheers
    Tim

    For a quickie theft proof device, just put a zip tie thru a couple of the holes, that keeps the vagrants without knifes/side cutters away!

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reviews!!

    I an definitely planning on having decals made but to be cost effective I an going to have to wait until I can afford a huge run to get the cost-per low enough.

    According to my contact my bands should be running today or tomorrow and hopefully I should have them by the end of the week to start filling back orders.

    Backonthebike I an definitely posting that review up on my site! Thank you! Droptarotter is right, a zip tie our safety wire through the two big holes with just enough slack to adjust the omni will make it much less inviting for would be thieves.

    I have placed my order today and am looking forward to replacing my "plastic one" with a non slipping version.

    Thanks for the discount as well!

    Just ordered one for my first long trip on my Uly. Unfortunately I'll have to run about 200 miles on the freeway, this should work great, better than hand cramps...

    Holy shipping Batman! Got all of the back ordered Omni's and orders that were missing the band from the last month SHIPPED yesterday. I'm now fully back in stock.. for a while. Only have 100 left but I am starting on a 500pc production run next week in anticipation of AZ Bike Week.

    I decided to allow dealers out of the country to expedite order for yaw'll living in the burbs :rofl Biker Bits in Australia has Omni-Cruise's in stock so you fellers can get them a little quicker by hitting him up.

    Mark shot a neat review of the omni... though he was more than a little rough with the band and it eventually broke.

    i just ordered 2 .i know they are easy to move from bike to bike but I'm really lazy . i also tend to lose a lot of things in my very disorganized garage.
