i stumbled across one of these on the net


and they seem like an ok unit for the price. i went a googling for the manual and you need to know how many pulses per mile is sent from the Vehicle Speed Sensor. The 300 has one of these VSS but i have no idea what the rate is of PPM pulses per mile. this unit can be set to 2000, 4000 , 5000 , 8000 PPM

anyone have any knowledge on this and like to share?

Many purpose built touring bikes have a cruise control system. While it sounds scary to use cruise control on a motorcycle, you have to understand where it is useful and where it is not. It's not meant to be used for in town commuting or high performance riding in the canyons. Where it is a useful feature is on long road road trips when the rider has miles of open road to cover with minimal cross traffic. Make a 600 mile trip across three states and you'll wish for such a feature. Most riders only get to stretch their clutch hand on these types of rides. Those with cruise control can rest the throttle hand, or both at the same time for short periods.

For the rest of us, there is a nifty product called The Crampbuster. It allows the rider to maintain a steady cruise throttle with the heel of the palm. This reduces fatigue and minimizes the amount of grip require by the right hand.
