Example of a thermometer mounted on the Strom...
I had one of these Formotion thermometers on a previous bike, very solid heavy construction, oil-filled and completely water and vibration-proof. Comes with a quality 3M adhesive pad on the back. I mounted it on the brake fluid reservoir, it's not interfering with removing the top at all and is well within line of sight while riding.
My experience with these is they are accurate while moving, and not accurate while sitting still in the direct sun. Not having an integrated and very accurate temp display is one thing I miss about my BMW. This is an acceptable compromise. This is a back-to-basics bike for me so I wasn't looking for a hardwired or battery-powered digital doo-dad. I want analogue gauges.
