2009 lt sticky thottle

On the road and I noticed the throttle will not return to idle when I let go of the grip. I have about 500 miles to get home and was wondering if anyone experienced this. Currently in Effingham Il. Need bee I can stop at the dealer in St Louis. Any recommendations? Thx

No recommendations, but I remember on old Motorcycles with out cruise we used to pay extra to have the throttle not return.

It has been a while since this happened and I forgot to post the resolution. What the dealer found was the round sleeve inside the grip had for some reason changed shape. A bit of sanding to knock down the friction points and all was fine. That was about 10,000 miles ago.
