    i got the 2 I ordered .
    thanks for shipping to Canada, and for free.
    i haven't used it on the bike yet, just played with them for a couple of days, they are so well made and lighter than i expected.
    GREAT PRODUCT.

    one question
    on the video that i saw about installation it says to put the "letter side ' of the little rubber ring facing the grip. my rings don't have any writing . one side is smooth and the other side seems to have a little lip on either side. i assume smooth side on the grip and the lips prevent the cruise from sliding off the rubber ring??
    do i make any sense ? ( i had a few beers)

    thanks again

    The bands were constantly being installed inside out so I had them not print on the new run. Plus over time the print wears off the inside. I just thought it looked cool, but having it inside out when people receive it makes people instal inside out.

    THE RIBS GO TOWARD THE GRIP so that the slightly rougher side faces out.

    That creates a concaved surface that also locates the omni and prevents it from wandering.

    Its best to try it without the band first as most bikes dont need it at all.

    The bigger two holes are purely decorative and fit a zip tie perfectly. I didn't mention anything about it in the instructions as I'm afraid someone will over tighten the zip tie creating an inability to adjust the Omni, or have the zip tie "clamp" get caught on a glove or cable. I planned on making a lanyard, but was advised my my insurance company not to as a dangling omni attached to the handlebars could also be dangerous.

    Its sad, but there are other products I have designed that never got launched for the same reason: .01% of all people are dumber than 99.99% of the rest of us... lawyers LOVE those people.

    Maggot- Thank you! Hopefully they all by you a beer after using and loving theirs :)

    ROSSM- That sure sounds like a well phrased review for my website ;) Sadly most of the reviews on there that I would like to quote for advertising some day left their name off so I can't :(

    nytrashman- Thank you sir! I love repeat customers!

    After Cyclefest next month I'm going to get some t shirts made. The quotes I've gotten require running at least a few hundred at a time to even be able to ship them for $15, but they will actually be pretty bitchin with a silver metal flake diamond pattern. I can't wait to start doing some shows and get to meet some of you guys!!

    I just placed my order this morning. Thanks for the discount. Maybe I should have asked earlier, but is anyone using it with an S10? Didn't see it listed as a known conflict so I'm hoping it clears the stock handguards. Got an extra band to use on my DR too. Thanks.

    Thanks wdeTA I sent him a PM.

    Icecold Dan it needs 3.25 inches to safely operate. If you just stick a tape measurer up against the grip and measure to the hand guard at the CLOSEST point it MAY hit that should give you a good idea.

    If it doesn't look like it will fit shoot a bunch of pics my way and I will see it I can make an adapter to fudge the hand guard. I just mailed out three test adapters for V Strom riders as they were very vocal that they would like it to fit... but it didn't.

    Of course if it doesn't fit and you don't want it I will take it back for a full refund less shipping and handling (s/h = $0.00) :)

    Got everything back from Laser and started shipping again yesterday.

    I'm machining the delrin lower, assembling and shipping so its a slow process but I SHOULD have all the back orders out by tomorrow.

    I'm going to let you guys pick the first shirt I do. I have a few designs, but mind you I'm NOT a graphic artist. Just poking around corel draw with the logo and such. Nothing fancy.

    Just ordered one with the coupon code. Thanks for that and looking forward to trying it. Are new orders shipping out now? Trucking the bike to Virginia in 2 weeks for 2 week vacation and hoping to have it.

    edit> email saying it is being shipped out already the next day.

    Couldn't figure out how it works, and once I did, it's so simple it's brilliant!

    Another Omni Cruise coming to Mexico!

    I just ordered 3 of them. 1 for me and 2 as gifts for my 2 main riding buddies. Over the years, I've burned a LOT of their rubber borrowing their bikes. Seems like a nice token of my appreciation.

    All orders were caught up as of Tuesday and the orders from today are already shipped too.

    We had a LOT of fun at cycle fest!

    My little booth at night after the event closed:

    The view of the Stage with live bands and freestyle jumps... from my booth! (no the orange Omni-Cruise is not for sale though I was offered $200 for it by a guy with a V-Rod Trike)

    On the way home from Phoenix to Orange County I got to see the coolest thing yet... Omni-Cruise in action! We passed a husband and wife riding down the 10W and noticed BOTH had Omni-Cruises on their bikes! We stopped for gas and they pulled in too and I snapped a pic. The wife picked it up on Thursday and the husband came by on Saturday and they both were loving them for their LONG ride home. That was a pretty cool feeling to get thanked mid-ride by a stranger :-)

    Thanks in no small part to the overwhelming support from the inmates here I was able to order a second, larger, CNC Mill today. I have the next two weeks to figure out how I am going to fit it into my 1.5 car garage sized shop... but in a month or two I will finally be able to start getting ahead and eventually putting them in dealerships and shops around the world. Who knows, by winter I might even get to start working half days: only 12 hours.

    Thank you all again. I cant tell you how much I appreciate everyones support and all of the other forums people share on.

    I have not read through all the posts in this thread. I saw the first page and went to your site. Omni-Cruise looks solid built. I had to order one after trying several other that are out there and do not work.

    Thanks.

    Agreed. The Omni-Cruise is one of the best made accessories that I have purchased in quite a while.
