Speedometer - Is this possible?
 
No matter how I adjust myself, my seat, or my steering wheel, I have problems seeing the speedometer. I usually shrug my head down to see my speed beyond the steering wheel, or under my hand/arm.

So, I'm wondering if there is any way to hook up a small speedometer somewhere else, but keep the original one in working order as well.

The smaller the better, and a digital speed reading would be preferred. I would love to be able to mount this somewhere that is not behind the steering wheel. Maybe on the driver's side "oh shit" pillar, or up where the sunglasses holder is.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? How-to's?

Inside my ride, for reference...

I agree, I absolutely HATE the placement of the speedo. I have to do the exact same thing

You can also get a DashHawk or the AeroForce gauges...They do it all - MPH, RPM, Temps, etc!
