Thanks guys for all the compliments 馃
Thanks Tozguy, that could be something to try next !!

Alright so just got back from my 587km in the deep woods in Nothern Quebec.
My setup works good on long straight roads but unfortunately when my finger started to get numb, my thumb wasn't ready yet for another treatment 馃ゴ. I did use it a few times though and I was glad.
As soon as we left the roads for the trails in the deep bush/woods trails, that thumb is the best for the tight quick and precise manoeuvres on the throttle lever. That's where I realized that I don't know I would be able to use a twist throttle when I am in extremely bumpy winding trails and at the same time you gotta play that thumb throttle 馃槼馃槼
Thanks for the detailed feedback.

It seems the manufacturers of ATVs knew a thing or two about the best throttle setup and nailed it from the get go, but I am left pondering as to why dirt bikes, which can ride gnarly trails that ATVs ride, have twist throttles. Aren't they subjected to the same bumps and turns and knocks ATVs go through?
