Shouldn't you be polishing your Hardley? Maybe trying to get the last of the baffles out of the pipes?

That is an amusing post though.  :D  I am surprised you didn't mention Otto though.

 :offtopic: I know were off topic!

I almost did. But he didn't really come into play in the topic.  Besides, most of the new people really don't have any idea about the estate and your man servant. Otto and the estate would be more in a post about your home life. This was about corporate affairs!   :D

Still OFFTOPIC

Yeah, Otto and the estate tend to come up more during the months of August through June, when your bikes are laid up for the 'winter' and you are cozy in your Snuggie....

Still off topic yet:  It sounds like that Snuggie could come in handy with the cold rainy weather we'll probably be getting at Wellsboro!  ;D

Now would  be a  great time for Brian to announce that the cruise control he's been working on is finished and ready for distribution....  :P

And I was going to say the same thing also!

The very reason I joined this group is this thread. I have just completed my own rosta cruise install and want to thank Brian and Murphs kits for the installation page. This kits works great. Thanks

Thanks for the kind words and glad to be of help if I can.

Very old thread but glad to hear you got the CC installed and it is working well for you! Best of luck with it.

I can’t imagine any cc working better than the mccruise, on my bike it’s better than my cars. This is an old thread and the reason I’m responding is that in op post, it says mcruise is over $1,000. Times have changed and those Aussie dingo dollars have dropped against the dollar. Last spring, I paid around $ 780 delivered .
We got off a Royal carribean Cruise in Sydney last month and as avid ( over 35) cheapskate cruisers we never buy cocktails on board. Out of Australia, mixed drinks were cheap than at a chain restaurant in the states, about $6.23, tip included.
My point here is that mccruise is flawless, the one at Murphy’s isn’t and requires more effort for install. At the time of this thread, there was a big difference in price. It has now dropped to around $770 and if history repeats itself like last year, they could have an anniversary Special coming up like last March for 10%.
It’s possible we might see a mccruise sold for under $700. Add on self cancelling turn signals , Bluetooth helmet and you’ll be thinking “ who needs a GW anyhow???”.

My Rostra has a 2 to 3 MPH variance from the speed I set it to, 1 to 1.5 MPH high or low from set point.

After I adjusted the angle at which the cable pulls the throttle linkage, it is also seamless when engaging, no surging at all.

For around $250.00 (compared to $700, if it ever gets that low) I can live with the small variance.

I think mccruise says it is stable to within +\_ .5mph. However, I found that reducing servo play makes even that better,the Speedo needle doesnt budge.
As for cost, also factor in frustration ; I seen a lot more audiovox cc owners post about problems with it than mccruise owners. Mccruise also looks more stock, looks it came with the bike.

I have to admit cost was definitely a factor for me. I did have a few changes in my installation due to personal preferences and I just think some ways are better visually. But this system so far on hills turns etc has less than 1mph variance so I am very happy with it's performance. Possibly they have improved their system?
