What do you guys use to measure temperature on your bikes?

A digital that is somewhat water resistant and preferably illuminated would be nice.
Battery operated and small enough to mount near instruments or on handlebars.
An external probe so I can position the probe out of the Sun but in air flow.

I know there are some out there that are cheap and not setup for external probing.
I’m using one now but it’s not suitable for real wet conditions.

Links would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've got a digital clock/thermometer combo unit that fits perfectly between the handlebar risers. It's not waterproof but it takes a beating and has lasted me better than 10 years. If I could find another like it I would buy it.

And I see you are a fellow Goldwing rider too.

Thanks for replies.

I found this one from Granger.

I wish it was illuminated. I like that it has a "Sola" panel and AAA battery backup.
Not waterproof, but a small shield can help that.
Price seems to be acceptable.

The temp range goes to –58 deg’s ( Not that I’m going to ride the bike at those temp’s.)
I would like to put one on my Kubota tractor for when I plow the driveway.

The one 650Stew listed does say it’s water resistant. Looks like a good choice for the bike, but like I mentioned above, for my Kubota, I ‘d like a range slightly lower than 14 deg’s
