Someone asked me about my stick-on thermometer at the Starbucks while getting ready for Rick's Grand Saline Soda Shop run.

I got one here and also got my wife a clock - both are stick-ons. We have them stuck onto the "dash" cowling but at least one person on a forum somewhere recommended sticking them to velcro so they could be removed when in "hostile" parking areas.

This type is a handlebar clip on:

It is handy to know the air temperature so you can be sure to shiver or sweat, as required... :roll:

I had a clip-on thermometer on my old bike but it really was useless b/c the heat off the motor would give a false temperature. :-( I really would like a clock though. No room for a clip on though on the SV.

That's odd... mine already has a clock built in... :-D

So much for my "I lost track of time" excuse. :(

I have a digital thermometer on the ram-air duct on the left side. The engine heat can influence the temps at a stop, but I have no trouble while under way. On my other bikes, I had a watch fastened around the upper triple clamp. This is the first bike I have owned that had a clock as one of the gauges. I only wish it was dedicated instead of having to toggle between functions to see it.
