Hello…

Not "Bluetooth" handsfree. Handsfree, handsfree.

On occasion, I have ridden for 10-30 seconds with my Throttlemeister holding the grip around 60-70 mph with my hands on the tank or hovering a panic distance away from the handlebars with the stock tires.

But, since I've installed the Michelin Pilot Road 3's, the ride is so smooth, yesterday, I did a 7 mile stretch on a smooth, straight highway, handsfree, using only my hips and shoulders to steer, with an occasional tap on the bar to completely get back on track.

The 14 is the first bike (besides my '71 BMW R60/S) and the 3's is my first set of tires that I have been able to pull up to a light or a stop and hold my balance for a decent amount of time at a complete stop before moving on.

Great bike, great tires. Anyone else give it a go? :eek:hno

I've been known to lean back on my tail bag with feet up on sliders and throttlemeister locked going down I80 in route to Sturgis for several miles. My buddy hates it when I do it because he doesn't have a throttle lock on his Busa.

Most of the roads around here have way too much drainage crown in the center to be able to pull that off.

Which one do you recommend?
I have a GPR. No issues and easy to install and adjust on the fly. And despite what GPR states the mounting bracket for the 2006-2011 WILL fit on the 2012's.

If you drag race a lot and strap the front you may want to go with the Olins shock style stabilizer as there is more clearance for the strap.

Being able to take your hands off the bars would be a massive relief for me.

Either that or buying a ninja 1k
