    Question G-Shock for weather conditions

    Hi everyone,
    I ride a motorcycle in all conditions and was wondering which model would suit the best.

    Hi Ron,

    I used to wear a g-shock 5600 E when I rode. It's really light and doesn't take up too much real estate on your wrist. It's quite thin and fits under your gloves quite well. It's relatively easy on the pocketbook and will take a beating!!. The miners up here beat them to death underground on a daily basis. My buddy got broadsided by a bear while on his Harley and between the bear, Rick and the g-shock, the g-shock faired the best!!

    hope this helps

    I concur with the 5600.
    I also ride a africa twin 750 and usually during winter the watches that see more wristime are the 5600, riseman and gw1200 due to theirt small profile and fit under gloves.

    As an occasional cold weather cyclist, I would go with the 5600 too (one of the nicest G's out there period), but I'd venture that the Riseman, at a good two inches round and over three-quarters of an inch thick, might be a tad too big to fit under any gloves I own. I have jacket sleeves the Riseman doesnt fit under!

    ps. I can imagine that an alti/temp watch is good companion on tour though.

    I wear often one or more Tripple Eyed DW-6900's while mountain biking. I love the look and the clear display. They are also not very thick, like most "Master of G" models. A DW-5600 is indeed a good watch for under clothes. I'm personally not very enthousist about it's looks, but a lot of G-Shock collectors like them.
