I prefer throttle by wife. Always dependable and never fails.

I agree with Rudy, I work all day long on these Hi tech wonder car electronics and I for one can do with the simple cables. I want to ride my wing not work for hours tracking down a bad connection in the hundereds of feet of wires and connectors. The newer wings are bad enough much less add more complication. Just my opinion
I will have to agree , The best thing I have found with the electronic throttle controls. Is just more income for me ,

No joke!! If you have the opportunity to work with these system when they have a glitch they will scare you on 4 wheels not to mention two.

A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory
Why spend life in a cage when you can spend it behind bars?...Handlebars, that is.

Don't forget that once the elecronic parts go into mass production, they probably would be cheaper to make than the traditional throttle cables and pulleys.
Cheaper to make doesn't always seem to make it cheaper for us to buy. I think sometimes it must be the distribution systems that drive up the costs for us. Parts probably have to make a profit several times before they get to us.
