I used a cramp buster on my KLR when on asphalt but find I don’t need it with the TBW on my ATAS. It doesn’t take much pressure to hold the throttle position.

:eek: (like, littering?)
Yes, kinda like that. Except maybe it had some value to someone? Not one of my finer moments, but I was po'ed and frustrated with it all weekend and finally got tired of it being constantly in the way. That was back in ... hmm.. 2012?

If I was going to look at one again, it would probably be the Kaoko.

I've got a throttle rocker. It's in my CBR's tank bag. I used it once. Been so long I'm not sure why I've only used it once.

Hello to all of you.
Some of my own doubts have been answered with my daily rides.
Still very happy with my choice and still learning each day.

I want to present you my new Youtube channel MadeiraOnWheels. I have uploaded two videos "Passeio Com Amigos" or Ride With Friends. I will share more videos of my future rides with my ATAS 2018 DCT on the beautiful Madeira island. Hope you enjoy, suscribe and share.

Almost felt like I was there. I enjoy other people's countries. It is nice to go along for the ride with a coffee in hand.

I have had a few occasions on DCT bikes where I had an unintended acceleration, one even dumped me in a parking lot. I think I solved it with a DCT reset which may have helped to reestablish a little throttle margin where you can twist the throttle a little before the actual throttle reacts.
Mine has almost zero “slack” in the throttle. I suspect this accounts for the supposed bike-accelerating-on-it’s-own I’ve read about. If I think about twisting the throttle it goes... I’ve wondered if it’s adjustable like the typical cable type throttle but haven’t looked into it yet.

Thanks. I have no experience on making videos. I recently bought a camera and I still have a lot to learn. That's why I really appreciate the support. I hope you subscribe and share.

The slow, steep descent (and wonderful view) through the neighbourhood sections was fun.
