Turbo mode throttle

I know the 11/12 mph throttle mode on the Turbos is just a little bonus thing, but if you use it for any great length of time or miles at a time does it hurt the bike in any way? Or are you only supposed to use it in little spurts? Whats the longest/farthest anyone has ever used it for?
I've tried it a couple times and it does okay getting you up to 10mph but then it gets stuttery: alternately accelerating and decelerating. I couldn't see using it for any length of time while riding.

Hard to hold the thumb joystick in throttle mode. It doesn't benefit from pedaling and stops assisting over 12 mph. Really pretty useless!
