What they're telling the tourists

  1. I found this link on the British site MCN...
    it's for an Aussie bike/car hire company...someone explain to me the bit about a radiator hose on the handlebar cruise control?

    Never heard of that one.

    I like the comment about Aussie don't speed án all. :LOL:

  2. The radiator hose over the end of the bar is like a poor-man's throttle lock. It squeezes the throttle grip and the bar end, meaning if you hold the throttle at a certain position and shuffle the small piece (ie ~1" is enough) of radiator hose along so it's half on the grip, half on the bar end it'll hold there.
  3. I'd say the radiator hose is just a variation on the rubber O ring throttle lock

    :grin: :grin:
  4. Hmmm....ok, I understand.

    Don't think I'll try it meself.
    Cheers guy and gal.
