If you guys went to PM, you could actually post an ebay link. You just can't do it in the forum.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

That would give a correct indication of the combination of forward movement and either headwind or tailwind, another essential piece of information.
I sense sarcasm...

I often bite my tongue on this forum because I know that everyone is titled to their own opinion...

I don't mind the sarcasm though as I've grown some thick skin...

I know, and thanks for the reminder...

I'm not too interested anyways as building a new one with Voltars help will be more fun and rewarding...

Hey Voltar,

My gear indicator is built and ready for the PIKAXE, just need to schedule a meet and eat somewhere between you and me one of these Saturdays (I'm buying.)

No, but if you mounted a fan and looked at the output voltage you could calculate your air speed velocity it and use the output to charge the battery too!

Actually you can buy what you "want" off the shelf - Digital Wireless Anemometer with Temperature & Humidity - WARD'S Natural Science

What I'm looking for is 360 degree radar, so I can see when cars are creeping up on me and hiding in my blind spot. Not sure whether a phased array of antennas glued around the bike or a small tower mounted to the luggage rack with a spinning antenna on top is the way to go.
