Over the years I have carried with me and used a throttle rocker. They are wide and in certain conditions in shutting down throttle may present safety/control issue.

SOLUTION: Cut down with hack saw to about 3/4 inch wide, mount at extreme end of grip......and you still have grip space left for gloved hand to grip the bars in proper manner when needed.

The rocker does provide a little additional leverage on turning the grip---maybe giving the hand and wrist some relief on long rides.

For wiping nose, etc I use NEP throttle stop---also fun to play with, seeing how long you can go on one throttle setting.

I have found a soft rubber kind that takes very little space on the end of the grip. It's the best I've found yet . I have posted these once before but here they are again.

I always carry a few tissues, paper napkins, sheets of kitchen roll etc for wiping my nose. On the move a quick swipe with my gloved hand is usually sufficient. I find it easier, safer, and more cost effective than poking myself in the face with a throttle stop.

Please don't tell us what you wipe your butt with!   Smile

Hard to beat the Crampbuster throttle rockers. I've used them on a bunch of bikes and five maxi scooters I've owned. I like the narrow model and I cut the tongue length down to about half length. That prevents accidently hanging up a glove or something on it while still leaving plenty to rest the heel of the hand on. The thing I like about the Crampbuster is you can easily adjust it for different speeds or just roll it out of the way completely if you don't need it. They rotate upward easily but resist rotating the other way on the grip so are easy to put where you want them. At a cost of ten bucks US they're a cheap addition to scooting comfort.
