I agree the Goldwing temp. gauge would be the more accurate one. Most Bank billborad stlye temp. gauges all over the country don't seem to read correctly. You'd think with 700 billion from the boys in DC they would at least tell us the truth about how cold it is!

When I ride I have only "temperatures ranges" I go by:

19 -39* at 50mph = Brrrrrrrrrrrr, freezin' my B --T off :22yikes:

40-76* at 50mph = Comfortable and Feelin' Great ;)

77 -87* at 50mph = Whew! gettin' Reeeeal Warm :eek:
88* & Up at 50mph = OUCH! Hot enough to Pop Corn. :popcorn:

It is in the right air intake, if you shine a light in there you will see it. PS they stop working at around 17, so don't worry when it gets that cold

I have learned that the temp can be effected by the engine temperature.

I never read the ambient temp if the bike is warm and has been standing still for any amount of time. I read the temp only after I have been rolling at least five to ten minutes to insure the engine temp will not effect the ambient temp reading.

Temp reading wrong...

All I know is yesterday it was about 53º on the news and at the gas station when I checked the temp, my trike showed 72º...

What's up with that?

Always shows hotter than outside temp... I think my sensor must be near the engine.

If you were sitting or in the Dallas traffic you were reading the road, and traffic temp. Mine is usually pretty close once I am moving, but like Wilson said you have to go a block or to to start getting good readings. I have started mine for the first time in the morning, and the thermometer in the garage say 38, and the bike say 45. It is only good while air is moving across it. :shrug:
