I have used aftermarket throttle locks like the VistaCruise or the OEM Harley throttle lock on my bikes for almost 30 years and probably a million miles now, and have never once thought "Gee, I wish this thing disengaged automatically when I touched the brakes." So I would never spend the extra $170 on the Brakeaway.
For that matter, I have either the Vista or the OEM Harley on all four of my bikes, and don't actually use them that often. A simple $10 throttle rocker gets way more use, and really cuts back on hand fatigue. The hand cramps don't come from twisting the throttle, they come from gripping it too tightly for an extended period. The throttle rocker lets you use the heal of your hand to hold the throttle open, thus encouraging you to relax your grip significantly.
