your best bet would be not to piss people off..
What I do is remove the handlebars after every moto. My throttle is never twisted. it only takes 10-15 minutes and I know I can shave some of that off with practice because look at nascar, 4 wheels and fuel under 18 seconds....Give it a try

Another thing is buy a enclosed trailer and load it up after each moto but then they would think your trying to hide something and protest you...

If your serious Doug Henry used a velcro strap around the brake and throttle. At least prevents UNIENTIONAL twisting and makes alot of noise if they undo it.

After 4 years ridding my thumper I finially had someone try to twist my throttle 2 weeks ago. I was able to catch him before he could do any damage. And that was just because he wasn't aware of the potential flooding problems. other than that I have had no problems with this, at the track or the trails. Maybe you need to be nicer to your fellow racers.

Yes White Brothers makes a throttle cover for our bikes. I just saw it in the catalog under the accessories section. It is like 10 bucks or so...
