Time & Temp?

I don't want to install a Vapor.
Is there something easy and cheap I can stick on the dash to LMK the time and temp?

I just bought a Oxford Micro Clock / Temperature Gauge for Motorcycles $24.99 at Twisted Throttle. It should be here next Tuesday. It looks tiny and I'm not sure if I'll even be able to read it with my old eyes..

Many things.

There is a gizmo sold by CA Sport Touring that will do it, but it requires hardwiring to the bike.

http://www.casporttouring.com/cst/motorcycle/14124.html Now, anytime you order anything from Sport Touring, you must order a pair of grip puppies. They are cheap and will make you happy.

For other options, take a look in the accessory aisle at your local auto parts store for a battery operated thermometer-clock. I used to have one similar to this and it worked OK http://reviews.walmart.com/1336/1432...ws/reviews.htm

I have had the oxford clock/thermo for a while now and its, well, okay.

Pros: It will tell time and it will tell you the temp. Easy to install (velcro).
Cons: It only shows one thing at a time and to change it with gloves on is pretty much impossible. It is also hard to read while riding due to size and the glare off of the screen.

If I had it to do all over, I would probably look for something else. Hope this helps!

Just think of riding like a mini trip to Vegas, where nobody cares what time it is. As far as temp goes, it is either too cold to ride, or it isnt, simple and cheap eh?

Got the meter and the dash panel from happy trail. The dash panel is nice and still on the bike however the first time the meter got wet it was history.

Gray-haired riders don’t get that way from pure luck.
