To all of you Harley Electra Glide owners out there, just how worthless is that Air Temp Gauge in the dashboard?

Seems like it's always about 20 degrees above the actual air temperature. I believe the sensor is inside the fairing, which explains why it's inaccurate. And why would a rider need to know exactly how hot or cold the air is? Your comfort level will tell you that.

I'd like to get a list going on what kind of gauge Harley Davidson should replace it with. Here's some of ideas to get started...

  1. An oil temp gauge

  2. A compass

  3. A radar detector

  4. A gear indicator - (1st gear, 2nd gear, etc.)

  5. A decibel meter - to see how loud your pipes are

  6. A bubble level - so when you're drunk you'll know if you're bike is laying down

  7. An inclinometer - to see how high up off the ground your wheelie is

  1. How about a miniature radar with a tube type display? It would be just as useless, but more in line with the low technolgy of the Harley machines.

  5. The most logical of all gauges would be an oil temperature gauge. What better way to know if there is an engine lubrication problem beginning.
