Default Speedo ideals

I don't have a speedometer on my bike & was looking for ideals on how some of u have yours. I don't see the point in the ones that are mounted in difficult places to see but wanted to get some ideal of a good looking set up that isn't stock. I have aftermarket bars as it is I say not stock. I was looking at maybe a 2.4 with the mount but idk. Lol this is what I was using in my picture. It wasn't bad at all but my watch just didn't stay lot all of the time & the pipe insulation was a little whatever is laying around lol.

Thanks for any pictures posted as well as info.

If you’re looking for cheap and easy, and you have a phone with a speedometer function - buy a $10-$12 handlebar phone mount from Amazon and go that way. I have one on my Moto Guzzi and used it to check my bike’s speedo.

“Rokform.com” or “Rammount.com” 2 very good and secure phone mounts for bikes, Rokform is alittle “pricey” but, you get what ya pay for.

I've had rokform gear b4. The s7 clear case is junk just because if the rubber pulls away & there is no screen protection like raised corners or something. The mounting system is bad ass &tuff as nails & the magnets are a great ideal. The rubber once again gives way with heat & putting it in your pocket within a short amount of time. I still like the product & will probably check them out again.
