Hey, go to your closest auto parts store and buy a "Manual Choke" kit.
It comes with cables and a ****, but istead of attaching it to your choke, attach it to the throttle plate where the cruise attachment would go.
Voila! Hand throttle.
Just remember to push it in when you're done!

p.s. I accept no responsibility for any untoward events that may occur from using this method

Also with the harder/heavier footwear, you are using less effort on the pedals, decreasing fatigue on your feet.

i do a lot of driving everyday for work, i deliver newspapers, i usually were my steel toe boots, not the best idea for a skinny person, the bone in my heel keeps digging into what very little meat i have there, very painfull at times

Works great. I have one in the track *****. I dont drive with it.. it just helps to warm it up when you dont have chokes.
