Well it's been a great 34,000 miles over the last 4 years on my 06 Vulcan 900 but I am finally putting "Black Sheep" up for sale.

2 reasons mostly: carpal tunnel & cruise control. My wrist can't do the 8 plus hour trips anymore without aching and needing to take frequent & longer brakes from the throttle. And the throttle clamps just don't quite do the job for me. I ride year round and my bike is my primary transportation. To most riders cruise control is a luxury but in my situation it has become more of a necessity.

I installed an electronic cruise on the 900 this winter and its been a great upgrade! Especially when I am on the slab!

Witch one do you have Pat? The only affordable one I am aware of is the Audiovox system but from what I understand it only regulates RPM and not actual speed.

For the miles you have on it I'll say you need a more comfortable bike like the street glide or something like that. Have you tried the universal cruise controls? I have one and love it on long trips, you can get them for arround $30. I installed mine the same day we were going to AK on a motorcycle trip and what a life saver. As soon as you start to feel numbness set it and rest your hand for a while.

I'm leaning towards a Nomad/Voyager or one of the Victory X bikes. My HD dealership charges an extra $700-$1000 in dealer fees for each bike the Glide is a little rich for my blood. I have used a couple of the universal throttle clamps and they help but ultimately I would prefer a way to just set the speed and not have to mess with it.

I got this one. http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=64&products_id=369

And here is a great set of instructions, from a fellow forum member, that I used to help do the install.

This works great. Now granted if you read the instructions it only works at 50 mph and above, but I really don't have a need for it below that. It holds your set speed very well I might add. Only varying a mile or two. Up and down hill. When you first set it it takes about 7 seconds to fully engage to where you can let off the throttle.
