When I saw that this week's Saturday Photo Hunt was "silver" I immediately thought of my silver handlebar clock on my motorcycle. Read below to see why.

Theme: Silver ** Become a Photo Hunter ** View Blogroll




Now here is a gadget almost better then PB&J (that is peanut butter and jelly). My husband got this for me for my birthday in January 2006. I do errands on my motorcycle and can loose track of time. It was very awkward to try and read my watch with my stiff motorcycle jacket covering it. The cuff kept covering it and trying to uncover it going down the road was next to impossible. So the above is one of my favorite accessories for my V Star 650 Custom. Now I can keep track of the time when out having fun ... errrr.. doing errands, lol.

What is your favorite silver object?

What will they think of next. Gone are the days where you could lose time with the wind flying through your hair!! Nice photo. Happy weekend.

I would imagine that this would help with the safety factor... your hubby loves you dearly!
Thanks for the visit.

Hi Incog & nito,

I hate to have to keep track of time, but when I have to be at work by 2:30 tutor math to 3rd graders, I must. The kids alway remind me when I'm a bit late, lol.

Hi SRP,

You are right. My hubby is very thoughtful and now I can ride much safer. I love it!!!

Great gadget! I knew you would have something fun this week! I am sure you have no shortage of gleeming silver on that bike! Have fun with your errands!

That is a wonderful accessory for a bike! It would be so dangerous to try to see a watch while riding. Great choice!

Thanks for stopping by my place! :)

eph2810 said...

That indeed is a wonderful accessory you have for your bike...I still hope that will have a bike on my own one of these days...Hubby just said that your's is still too big for me -- I don't think so. But then again, he knows my abilities better than I do...
Have a splendid weekend and stay warm.

Eagles Wings said...

That is so cool! I was thinking of a bike photo when I thought of silver but I couldn't find it last night to scan it and post.

I like incog & nito's comment "Gone are the days where you could lose time with the wind flying through your hair"

Thanks for stopping by mine

What a clever assessory! And love the photo. Definitely silver! And now you have no excuse to ever be late from out joyriding. Opps! I meant doing errands.

PastorMac's Ann said...

Pretty nifty! Fits so nicely there amongst your other gauges. Nice pick for this week's theme!

Sarch said...

I've seen those before and always thought they were really cool.

My Nomad has a clock in the speedo or I'd have to get me one of those.

Good to hear from you Betty.

BTW I've added a new post since you visited.

meeyauw said...

And its an analog clock, not digital! Do you find that easier to read while riding?

Vader's Mom said...

That's very helpful! Great silver.

Teena said...

Nice but handy :) Our property manager recently bought a new Harley ... he can't wait 'til spring comes so he can pick it up and ride it.

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Holy crap! You get a lot of comments here, Betty! Nice job!

I love the photo. That's a very nice use of space, and I like that you turned the bars to kind of change the visual vector.

Anyway, just thought I'd stop in and say Hi...

Ride well,

The clock looks great. The placement is nicely done too by the way. None of the bigger bikes we have came with clocks but the one that did...? The scooter. The Vespa LX150. figger that one out

Nice blog Mrs Betty :)
