Installed some digital gauges under my Madstad.

Ambient temp and clock.

She's stored for the winter, so no fuel. ��

Coolant temp would be nice, but no more real estate on the dash.

I ALWAYS store my vehicles FULL of gas, w/ an appropriate amount of STABIL mixed in.

Doesn't matter very much as tanks now days are coated internally.
They won't rust due to condensation.
I'd rather put a fresh tank of gas come riding season....

Plus it's stored in a heated shop......

Looks like a jet plane! I had a question about your USB ports. How often do you use there and what are they for? I just got my bike and I was thinking that might be something nice to have (for me it would be camera, phone, maybe gps)

I know it wasn't directed at me but I also installed the same usb port on mine. I use it to charge my phone pretty regularly - it has the higher output to charge tablets and the phones like the Samsung s4/5. if using a phone for GPS that charging port is a huge help.
