    Finally got around to installing my Omni Cruise on my Uly... It arrived very quickly, had great packaging and is truly a quality product. Definitely a lot of thought went into this.

    I haven't had a chance to use it much yet, commute is only 5 miles or so and haven't had a chance to let the bike really stretch it's legs lately, but function seems great for what I've tried and can't wait to put it to good use.

    Keep up the great work and continue to develop awesome products!

    Received my order today #225

    Ordered 20th December, so just over two weeks to get here to Canada (and over the year-end holidays at that).

    Thanks - it looks really great! :clap

    Now when the 8 - 12 inches of snow on my street disappears, I'll give it a try...

    order 233 done, free bump

    this is a heck of a value since ive broken 2 of those plastic ones in the last 2 years, besides that they never work since they slip so much on me

    I have had fast service before, but this was ridiculously fast. I placed my order and Brian was printing out the shipping label a whole 7 minutes later AND sent me an email to let me know that FedEx wanted him to change my address a little. Ships in the morning.

    Wowser.


    Thanks.

    Order #241 in! We'll see how this works on an RC51. I've got the Go-cruise now and I've been careful to not over-stretch it when taking it off and on. My biggest complaint was that it wouldn't always grip enough to maintain a throttle position even with the band installed. I reinforced the plastic with zip-ties through it, which helped, but I still had to keep a little pressure on the throttle to maintain speed.

    I'll post back with pics and experiences after it shows...

    I have the same thing happening on my F800R, and I havent taken it off since I put it on. I like the idea that this one is sturdier, and has a set screw instead oif relying on the strength of the plastic.

    I too have got sick of the plastic versions breaking. They are a great idea, but I always have to carry a spare (and they are $25 here in AUS).
    Pulled the trigger on the Omni 3 minutes after finding it on here.
    Brian, I'm hoping to be able to say I've got the first one Down Under??

    Cheers

    PS. 106 degrees F in Adelaide today; how's it goping over there?

    Order placed.
    This one is going on the BMW.
    The plastic one from the other company is still on my KLR and still works fine.
    Won't need to replace that.
    Yet.
    LOL

    Congrats on the write up in Motorcyclist! By your lack of posting on the thread lately, I assume that CNC is running like crazy!

    Forgot to post that I received it promptly.
    Haven't installed it yet, but it seems pretty sturdy with a nice design.
    Can't wait for the weather to break to test it out.

    Holy Cow, guess I missed an email so ADV quit sending notifications of new posts!

    Thank you everyone for the comments and thread bumps ;)

    I'm working on a run and have lots of machining work ahead if me since my mill was down since the 4th. Had to rebuild the spindle and rewire the motor... fun stuff!

    Prior- thanks for the congratulations, but I don't think they printed it yet did they??? I think it will be in the March issue, possibly even under the "MC TESTED" section which would be killer!

    Surprisingly I've had more international orders so far in 2013 than domestic! Including Australia (Backonthebike- never heard back from them BTW), Finland, Netherlands, Spain, Singapore, and of course the Ever-Awesome-winter-warriors to my North: CANADA! I figure about an order a day is great for the dead of winter with no advertising yet. I'm excited for summer to roll around because when orders pick up I can start working on some new ideas (including some neat ADV toys :)

    I'm so glad all the reviews are positive and exciting! I could hand out free money and one in 10 people would complain they have to pay taxes on it... THANK YOU GUYS!

    I started throwing in an insert begging purple to post reviews on other sites too. I started to sign up for a few other forums and they are almost all owned/managed by motorcycle.com and require I pay monthly to even post. Seems kind of strange to make it harder for businesses to offer discounts to your members.

    Im going to have to order one of these. I have a lever type system on my 950 right now, and I dont like it. I have big hands, and the unit I have takes up enough space on the throttle, that it makes it uncomfortable. I have the handguards as well.

    How wide are these units? they dont look much more then 1/4 inch ish...?

    Dead on 1/4". need 3.25" clearance to the hand guard. I'm working on something to adapt the new v strom guard to fit too :)
