this is what I have on mine.I like because I can set it to where the throttle doesnt return.I know a lot of guys think this is bad but you have to realize I have rode my 1972 FLH for 30 yrs and it had a push-pull throttle wire no cable or return spring at all.
Also the release when you touch the brake is nice.

i've got one on my highball, works great, takes half hour to install, but does hang quite low on the switch gear. so if you have long thumbs and big hands it works great, otherwise it's a bit of a stretch. one thing they dont tell you is that you need a wrench for the tap(should you choose to buy it from them). i put it in my drill.... but wouldn't recommend this.

The break away works really well.

I used the Break Away on my old Triumph and it worked great and looked pretty good with the ISO grips.

Is the Break Away the only one that releases when the brakes are engaged? If so that's the one I want.

I don't know if it is the only one that does but the Break Away's brake release did work well for me.
