I have a 2015 Connie, getting ready to do a 1000 mi one day ride.

I have an older model FJR, an '07 with nearly 125K miles. The Connie is often blacklisted simply b/c it has no cruise control, how have you overcome this? I have 2 different throttle locks installed.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.

It does not bother me, I also have a 1997 Vulcan 800 Classic. I have driven it all across the USA 500 to 700 mile days, took me years to breakdown and get a shorty windshield for her. I just like riding, on my Connie I normally ride with the windshield down unless its cold or raining. I do have an O-Ring that I can roll into the crack between my throttle and housing if my hand gets tired, but I rarely use that. Cost $1.25.
