    Hello KWC,

    Your throttlemiester device looks great! I'd like two (2) also if you fabricate some more. Please post if you decide to do so.

    Thanks,

    :clapItem works far better than one would expect.
    Cannot imagine using Throttlemeister without it. Especially a bike with hand protectors. Gives you the necessary "traction" on the TM and even facilitates locating it when your when wearing gloves.

    Mine arrived today. Thanks.

    I tapped it on with a mallet. It added just a fraction of width to the throttlemeister, so I had to move the grip inwards just a hair to allow the grip to move freely.

    I start a 3 day trip Sunday. I'll post how well it does, but it seems to be just what the doctor ordered.

    OK, it was a 4-day trip.

    This little wheel is GREAT!

    Going across Kansas, and later back the same way was mind-numbing. On the way back it got cold so I had to break out the winter gloves. With this wheel I was able to set the Throttlemeister firmly, and use it a lot.

    It works much better than the smooth metal the meister is made from.

    The only caution is a minor one.
    With bulky gloves, I unknowingly twisted the wheel toward the ON position as I rode. It never got near the point where it affected the throttle. Now I know to check that it is fully OFF, every now and then when wearing big gloves. With my fall/summer gloves this did not happen at all.

    I highly recommend this item.

    Keith, mine arrived today. I have to say, it's even nicer in the flesh than in the photos. I'll fit it tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

    It works very great, just the right amount of grip.
