Too funny, Not sure what sounded worse, the checkered flags, the plastic gears or the stuck needle. Lol. Yep they are cheesy but its all we have unfortunately, unless you want one of those medical looking ones that look like they belong in a doctors office to check your temp.
One would think some company would make one that looks analog but is digital , with a digital speed needle, has room for some real batteries, uses LED tech for a backlight that stays on for night riding. Every one now, the back lite is on for like 1 sec then shuts off, what good is that. They are all the same junk. Isn't like there are not 100 bazillion bikes out there.
