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.

Now that setup, I would think, would be a lil' slower to disengage in an emergency situation. To where the other one, you just roll the throttle foward or the bar end, and thats it. Plus it isn't technically "locked"
I can speak from experience. The vista cruise can be backed off by simply rolling off the throttle. I've never seen one you couldn't. I do like the throttlemister concept for both looks and function. If it wasn't so pricey. I would get one for my Gixxer. I just don't ride it on long trips enough to justify the expense.
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.
I'm sure this unit has some sort of detent spring to keep it from slowly clamping down. That would be my only real concern other than price.

Maybe if there are enough people that want to get these, maybe we could contact the site owner if he'd do a group buy.
:luck: The price would have to come way down before I would consider one.
Don't get me wrong. I think its a great idea for those of you that use your Sportbikes for travel and commuting.
