    I don't go for a drive and not use it, bloody marvellous it is.

    If you drive on motorways , OK. But it'd be no good here

    Adaptive cruise control is where itís at. Awesome kit. Literally can use it everywhere. (Car)

    It was on my second Blackbird when I bought it. An after market addition, but TBH, for that bike it should have come as standard - not that I liked it back then, but now I'd love it (if I get another BB type bike!)

    Oh yes I remember my mate Willy clapping and waving his hands to music on his stereo while touring Spain

    I had an R1200RT with cruise fitted as a courtesy bike when one of my BMWs was in for fixing one time.

    It entertained me trying to ride the bike as far as possible without touching the bars. On one (straight) section of M-way I shuffled back to the pillion seat for a bit...*

    I'm not sure I'd use it routinely on a motorbike, but then I try to avoid using the motorbike on motorways if I can.

    *yeah, I know, not big or clever, but I was young and foolish.
