I've been looking for a small weatherproof, stick on, digital thermometer. No luck.

Can anyone recommend one?

Dying to know how cold the morning rides are.

Thanks

Most bike accessory shops do them (here, at least). http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle-Analogue-Waterproof-Clock-Temperature-Gauge-Fits-7-8-and-1-Handlebar-/300772861557?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item460775a675

I've got the temp bit of one of these-my Guzzi killed the clock...

Although, I'd probably buy this small and inconspicuous one. http://www.thermometerspecialist.co.uk/garden-thermometers/outdoor-thermometers/central-park-aluminium-garden-thermometer-1m

I'd like one too.
So I did some googling, and found:
http://www.thatpetplace.com/sybon-digital-submersible-thermometer-marine
Seems like it'd be easy to mount - pop-rivit the battery cap to the bike.

There are some nice, cheap submersible aquarium thermometers out there - if you can deal with celcius.  I expect there will be more fahrenheit ones coming to market fairly soon.

So if your thermometer tastes crappy...


I had this one in the past. It attaches to the bikes wiring, so you have an voltage meter too.
I don't recall if I got it from aerostich, but its the first I found with a google search.

YA could buy one (as I did) for less than 10K$ although it comes with a motorcycle

Although the galileo thermometer Papa posted might be more cost effective, well maybe a bit harder to read while deep in the twisties and yet good to contemplate the true temp on a long straight (think Kansas)    Bigok

I'd suggest asking Thermometer Mam.

Thermometer Man is the perfect name for the 83-year-old Richard T. Porter. He has the biggest collection of thermometers, almost 5000 in different shapes and sizes. Before losing his daughter to a brain tumor he promised her to do something with his collection, and therefore he opened The Porter Thermometer Museum in the small village where he lives; Onset in Wareham Massachusetts.

He began to collect when he was a science teacher for a junior high, because he used thermometers a lot in classes. He has given the National Weather Museum in Penn State the permission to take his whole collection when he is no more around. Porter has some stories to tell when it comes to his travelling through every state and 20 other countries to collect thermometers, and the collection is also in Guinness Record Book.

My RC51 was devoid of any kind of clock so I found this at a local autoparts store
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/BELL-InOut-ThermometerClock-1EYT9?gclid=CMTip_fhoLoCFc6h4AodJDQALg&cm_mmc=PPC:GooglePLA-_-Fleet%20and%20Vehicle%20Maintenance-_-Automotive%20Interior-_-1EYT9&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=1EYT9&ef_id=Ui@CfwAABRgFXDxO:20131018160644:s

Worked surprisingly well tucked inside the windshield, just above the tach/speedo display. It also displayed ambient temp. The background light was useless, but it worked fine. Don't remember the exact cost but it was cheaper than the link.

the above opinion is simply that of an average middle aged hick with one too many brain injuries... or, don't take it too serious.

I'll check this one out but it doesn't look like it's indoor/outdoor.

Bought this one for $9.60.

the indoor/outdoor refers to the antenna sensor that would be placed outside. The base unit couldn't take a solid drenching.





One of the main things I wanted to get was a backlight. So I could see it at night.

Looked at the Koso but that was spendy.
