Go Cruise Throttle Control: http://www.2wheelride.com/throttle_order.html Works great on mine. It is a little uncomfortable as it takes the left side of the throttle (where my hand rests) but easy to use/on/off. Fits in a jacket pocket when not used.

It's not a "Rice-Burner". It's British. It's a "Fish-n-Chips Burner"!

Not just a palm wrest but an actual throttle lock and it will disengage if you press a button or hit the front brake.

Went with what u suggested jbadner. Was way cheaper and simple, mines being shipped to me now. Thanks hopen it grips well and doesn't slip or losen with tension and vibrations.

You realize it's not a cruise control? It's a wrist rest. You hold the throttle with you palm against it. It doesn't lock the throttle in anyway.

Did you watch the video? It does "lock" the throttle. Actually looks pretty simple and easy to use, and easy on/off. Twist the throttle to desired speed, push it up against the brake lever, and it holds the throttle in place.

Oh, okay. Sorry I know of other devices of similar design that were simply wrist rests sorry for the misinformation.
