Hello to all !
Going for a long weekend ride (approx 600km) and I was thinking of some temporary device to rest my thumb occasionally 馃槈
I "invented" my own device !
Here's my little video !
Sorry don't know how to add a little video 馃が I would've like to show it in operation.
I cut a finger from a rubber/cotton glove, a zip-tie attached (loose for finger), a piece of string and voil脿. Honestly it's pretty cool 馃槑

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

Just wondering if you did much cruising at a constant speed?
Yes a bit !!
In the first part of the adventure, the first 197 KMs were divided in mixed types of terrain. Only maybe 70KM were just cruisin and again, were divided in 10-15 KM sections.

Well after trying and inventing 馃槣馃馃 my device to rest my thumb, I didn't find it practical although it did work.
I'm 6'3" so I have good hands. When holding the handle in a natural way, my thumb is way to for down on the little lever almost at the pivot. Not very ergonomic 馃檮 If I wanted to use the tip tike it's suppose to be, my hand was sticking out of the handle bar halfway. So I decided to move the whole thumb throttle assembly towards the center. Now when I hold the handle, my thumb is on the throttle where it's easier.
