Motorcycle Clock

I've got a casio G-shock strapped to the left handlebar just below the clutch lever. Had it there since I bought my baby. Problem is I have to press a button to see the time at night. And with my gloves on, I can't hit the button that well to begin with. Pluse the watch keeps rotating into a position where I can't see the time.

Does anyone have a good watch that bolts to the handlebars and illuminates at night automatically? Or at least has an illumination button that's easy to press with gloved hands.

I can't help you with the rotation problem, but the watch I wear on my wrist is a Timex Expedition that I got at Wal-Mart.

The colors are different, but it's structurally the same as the left watch on the second row on this page.

The big oval button on the front face is the night-light. I just double-checked, and it's a piece of cake to hit with my gloves on. I don't think even mittens would be an impediment if you were so inclined.

That is deep. I would like a thermometer. Maybe I will start a thread.

I agree with Vulcanjoe. Why worry about the time, either the bar is still open or it isn't?

For emergencies I carry a Gentleman's Pocket Watch which aslo functions as a phone and personal entertainment system, more than good enough for my modest needs.

Mine is a Red one.

I have the one you can get on E-bay, and it looks like the one in the link from VOIP DOC. They work well, mount pretty easy and look good. They also have matching thermometers.

You might want to check Meritline.com. They have a ton of inexpensive (and sometimes cheaply made) clocks.

They have some for bicycles that do time and temp (also speed and mileage but I wouldn't attach the sensors to the motorcycle)

They have a mini projection clock that you can shoot at your helmet visor at night and know exactly what time the accident occured.
