Default Cruise control

I have a 2016 xc without cruise control. I found a dealership that has one in stock. I am curious if you guys that have cruise use it a lot and how you like it? Also if any of you put it in yourself how hard was it?

Never leave home without it! I actually use it all the time cause if I donít I find myself going way faster than posted speed limit.

It is the most important feature on my bike and I use it all the time.

It is the only reason I don't have a bunch of tickets. I use it any time I can.

The hardest part of the install is mounting the black box. The instructions tell you to remove the swing arm, etc. but watch the Witchdoctor's video on installing a lowering link and you'll see how you can get to the area under the seat where the box goes without removing the swing arm. To the best of my memory the rest was easy.

I love my cruise. I would get it before it's gone.

MY first bike with a electric cruise was the venture. Much like this bike I agree mine has saved me some coin. On long trips I couldnt live without it now. Shoot even just running an hour or so I use it most of the time if it's possible.

I rarely use mine because most of my riding is on twisty roads but I do turn it on a couple of times a month and engage it just to make sure it is working.

There is, or was, more than two kits in the country. Two kits in my house just last week. Lucky score, though.
