Loss of throttle control

My V has a serious throttle problem. It constantly forces my hand to twist the throttle and attack curves with wild abandon. Fight as I might she begs for me to push her hard and fast. I'm so weak and do it every time. Is there a help group out there we can join?

Hi, I'm King and my motorbike has me whipped....

Agreed. Took mine out last weekend to one of the Three Twisted Sisters in Texas. First time riding the route on the V. It was an absolute BLAST in the twisties!! Was having WAY too much fun! :-D
