Bar end throttle lock...where to get them?

Some of you guys may have seen these...You replace your bar ends with these type of bar ends and it makes it a throttle lock. The ones I saw on a bike was on a Kawi and were chrome to also dress it up and looked like a typical bar end. The way it worked was if you pulled back on the throttle with the bar end, it would lock the throttle for cruise control. To disengage, you simply twist just the bar end a little and it unlocked, or just roll foward on the throttle and bar end at the same time. Kinda hard to explain, but anyone know where to get these? I checked with my local shops and they've never heard of anything like this. The guy told me where he got them, but of course I forgot the website. These would do wonders for the right hand on a long ride.

I'd think that'd be a dangerous if you let a little road grime get on it... or after waxing... and the it gets slick... you might have trouble twisting it in an emergancy... :2cents: though

You don't have to twist it in an emergency. All they do is put constant pressure on the throttle. You can back it off by simply rolling off the throttle. The big warning about all theses things is, You have to back off the throttle. Not just let it go.
ahh... ok.. intresting
