Looks like a thermomter for measuring liquids... How good would it work for measuring ambient air temp?

according to documentation "Can be used to monitor air/gas, liquid, and semi-solids"

Actually, a cheap, digital meat thermometer works well.

Man, with a stainless probe, a 10' cable and the ability to monitor air, gas, liquid and semi-solid, you certainly do have plenty of choices about where to insert that probe! ;)

cheap thermometer

I use a real cheapie battery powered unit that I've siliconed watertight and velcro keeps it on the dash. When the battery dies I'll just buy a new thermometer.

a handlebar mounted thermometer will not give you an accurate reading. Its sitting there being beaten by the sun. You need a probe you can put in the shade to get a proper reading.

The utility of mounting a thermometer on one's motorcycle seems to be a bit questionable. When I'm out and about on der Strom, the temperature is never in question. If the air gets warmer or cooler during the ride, I'll know. Perhaps folks want to know the precise temperature readings during their ride, just for the sake of knowing? That's fine, I suppose.

Now, here's a geegaw that is worthy of additional discussion:

Living in Vancouver BC, I ride year round.

Black ice (or any other colour) is no fun on your commute home.

Knowing the relative humidity and the tempearture is very important.

Which is why I like the digital thermometer on my Jeep Cherokee. I get extra careful when it drops below 32 deg F

Or get a 2012 Strom that comes with the freeze warning signal that warns you when the temps get, well, near freezing. Also has a temp gauge in C of F.


A temp gauge is a must in my conditions and yr round commute.
