Actually, I did a search for an "Old Hag" picture and Mikulski's picture came up.... and I thought it appropriate..

You'll still need duct tape or Velcro® to stick that to the dash.

Not necessarily, I worked up a system for a friends wing a few months ago on my lathe. Turned a piece of wenge wood in a chuck system. Top of it had a round indention bored outfor the clock to fit into. Bottom had a sleeve that fit into a hole drilled into the fairing. Side was beveled to rest on the fairing for a smooth look. Glued the wood into the fairing and the clock fit tight enough you could pry it out to change batteries when needed.

My brother, who also works with wood lathes, made one to glue to his handlebar. Looks sharp.

That sounds pretty slick but duct tape still has more character.

Scout Guy - do you work for these guys?

Your interest in duct tape seems to be a little obsessive and slightly creepy

But hey, I'm English. Maybe there's not much to do in Pennsylvania.

(They don't make duct tape there do they?)

Dang... I mean DANG! I need to duck to avoid the flying veiled barbs (I'm sure meant in jest) around here!!

I saw a lot of ForMotion clocks around, waterproof to 3 ATM (I doubt I'm going to bring my wing on a scuba dive, but I'm known for being innovative at work....)... They all seem to be in the $60 range (I have no idea how many Euros or Pounds that works out to), but some are intended to be mounted on round handlebars, which I don't believe we have on the Wings... I don't want to 'muck up' the appearance of the Wing but enhance it.

Sorry, I'm allergic to duct tape, it makes me break out in Redneck Hives, you know, a highly technical medical term for having a sense of decorum....

I spent the day yesterday on my Wing, at the MSF ERC class. I can't count the times I wanted to check the timebut couldn't, because the bike was turned off and I was wearing a "Joe Rocket" jacket which has fairly stiff sleeves and prevented me from 'pulling down' the sleeve to check my wristwatch.

By the way, I had a great time in the class, aced the U-turns, etc...

At the same token, to read the screen on my Wing to tell the time makes me take my eyes off the road and locate the time on the screen. It only takes two seconds but that just might be the critical time between an accident or not... An analog clock set fairly close to the windshield might let me glance at the time and not take my eyes fully off the road...

Have you ever considered a HUD? I have a vague memory of seeing something that attaches to your visor to give you speed and rpm information. Maybe you could do something similar with a clock.
