$3 Thermometer

$3 Instant Read cooking thermometer + Wire hanger + Fairing Bolt

Cheap, water resistant, accurate, and calibration adjustable.

VERY secure in the wire mount.

I have the same gauge, but mounted mine to the bracket that holds the headlights. It's inside the faring where I can see it, but hidden from view.

Hey where's you find the one that begins at 0?
I was going to use the same idea a couple years ago & all I could find in Wallyworld where the meat thermometers that started at like a 100.

If you want to spend a few dollars more, go to your local restaurant/kitchen supply store. There you can get the manual thermometers or an electronic one. Thermometers from regular stores are not that good or durable,

.....same reason they install them in modern day cars (to read outside temp)???

Now, having a compass on board (a car or bike), I never really understood???

Actually, I'm a professional chef and that thermometer IS from a restaurant supply store.

Analog instant read thermometers from Cooper or Taylor are very durable and can take a bit of abuse. I use both brands on a daily basis.

I've had pretty bad luck with the digital versions though.

I an tell it's hot when I'm on a bike. In the car, the aircon masks that sensitivity.
