I'm kinda' with you on that one..... Heck, I don't even like using my phone when I'm driving my car unless I absolutely have to.

I very rarely use my motorcycle solely as a mode of transportation. For me it's more like a "Holiday" when I ride. So the cell phone goes directly into the saddlebag until I reach a destination. Notice a said "a" destination not "my" destination; that's because I don't always have a designated destination. To me it's more fun that way.

I bought this one off ebay 2 years ago. Replaced the battery this spring, works great, but as mentioned with the other clocks you can't see it at night.

How do you adjust the time? Can you adjust it without removing it from its mount?

Mount stays on the bike, the clock easily comes out of it. There is a dial like a watch on the side.

It'll be snowing by the time you get it so you won't have to worry about riding in the rain anyway....
Did you notice it's coming from Hong Kong? The ad says Delivery by Nov. 17th but those slow boats from China can sometimes take even longer.

You can always hang a wristwatch from your handlebar until it arrives, lol!

A clock is nice for me because of school zones. Sometimes I am riding around the time they start and stop, so good to know with a quick glance.
AS said, I got one of the cheapie ones (clock and thermometer combos). The thermometer quit working the first day in the sun. It is now stuck at 80F. I need to return it to Amazon.
I ordered a cheaper just clock from E-bay, should be here in a few weeks (another one of the slow boats from China).

That Victory clock is nice looking, but I don't really have anywhere to mount it. The bar mount clocks mount easily and out of the way.
