When I was on my cross country tour last year, how I wished that I had a couple of items that would have made me more comfortable in the 100°F heat which I had to endure for weeks. It is not easy to wear full riding gear while all the other riders that you notice are in T-shirts and shorts.
I had wanted to buy an evaporative cooling vest before I left but there was no where in town to buy this item and I didn't notice any dealers while I was on the road so I did without. I never even considered buying this on-line but thanks to Motorcyclehouse.com and their quick shipping, I now have one to review before I head out on another tour. I also took the opportunity to buy another farkle

which is a nice Thermometer which I can mount on my bike. I brought along a cheap, plastic thermometer but it wasn't waterproof and water got inside. This one is Stainless steel and is water sealed to 5ATM, is vibration resistant and liquid filled so it is very well made. I can purchase one locally for much more money, but this one from MotorcycleHouse.com was very reasonably priced.
Motorcyclehouse.com sells lots of products but it wasn't easy to find these gauges as it was put under electrical, even though this requires no power. The needle indicator glows in the dark so you can read it at night and it also has a backlight which can be turned on by pushing the little button on the top. It must have an internal battery but I can't see how it would be replaced
Here is another photo to show you the scale. It looks larger than what it is in the previous ones
It can be mounted on my bike using the screw on the back and the supplied bracket

If you go to their website you will find that MotorcycleHouse.com carries much more than Viking Bags and Riding Jackets. As soon as the weather improves I'm going to be reviewing this evaporative cooling vest but not this weekend as the forecast is for showers with cloudy periods but summer should be here soon
