Twerth, I use a GoCruise. The cheap plastic version. Have had it for the past few years. It's so simple, I'm surprised it wasn't invented 40 years ago (oh, wait, my 750 honda and my old BMW had throttle-dampening screws on the bottom of the twist grip!).

Anyway, I find it simple to use, and easy to swap it from bike to bike. Downfalls are it eats up about 1/4" of length of your grip. So if you have large hands, it something to consider. Also, since it can come off easily, it could be stolen easily. I've never had this issue, and it's not something that stands out like a sore thumb. But I figured I'd mention it.

Thanks Stick. I got to take a look at a Go Cruise on a friend's bike over the weekend. He seems to like it. But, I've already ordered a Vista Cruise. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably give the Go Cruise a try.

Anyway, pics of the reassembled bike are attached. I've got a couple of weeks of home improvement to knock out, but after that, I'll disassemble and start paint work.

Bad news for you with the tip over. A guy at work tipped mine over a couple of years ago which wrote the bike off. I purchased back from the insurer and repaired it. At least I knew the guy!

Yours will be as good as new in no time.
